The boat is capable of carrying out Hydrographic survey operations using modem surveying equipment / system, up to a minimum water depth of one meter below hull mounted single beam echo-sounder transducers .It shall also be able to undertake emergency operations like landing shore survey parties and providing logistic support to shore camps.
The boat has been designed to be operational and manoeuvred safely and effectively at speed with full complement in sea conditions. The vessel is very stable and resistant to capsize. The chines are particularly stiffened to ensure that impacts at the waterline do not compromise
integrity of the hull.
The vessel offers good manoeuvrability and throttle response throughout its speed range and particularly when coming alongside or breaking away from an underway vessel at its full load and complement.
The design and construction of the boat is in such a way that it will be able to withstand sudden impacts arising from grounding,if any, without any compromise to integrity of the hull, to the extent possible.
