This Royal Navy boat is an unmanned vessel titled the Maritime Autonomy Surface Testbed (MAST) speedboat that is engineered to perform surveillance missions in aquatic locations.

The MAST speedboat was taken for a test on the Thames River in London and is one of more than 40 robotic crafts that are set to partake in the Unmanned Warrior 2016 event.

The Royal Navy boat is not intended to carry weapons or be used for combat but rather to be utilized for surveillance and reconnaissance missions. The craft features a sleek design that is nimble on the surface of the water and that's engineered to navigate crowded waterways in compliance with existing regulations and rules to boot.
