It is powered by a 315 kW marine diesel engine. Air is drawn through the mast and exhausted through the stabilizer above the contra-rotating propeller. The engine also provides power for the hydraulically operated control planes and the keel-mounted winch for the sonar towfish.The 8.23 meter long vehicle has a dry weight (with fuel) of 5900 kg and reaches speeds of 18 knots with no tow and between 10 and 15 knots with tow.
