Developing a robust obstacle avoidance module is a foundamental step to-
wards fully autonomous unmanned surface vehicles. Until now, most marine
vehicles traverse following waypoints paths, usually GPS-based, totally uncon-
cerned about possible collisions. In this paper, a combined system integrating
autonomous flying and surface vehicles is suggested as solution to the path
planning problem
