Underwater robotics company, Saab Seaeye, has joined the National Oceanography Centre’s (NOC) Marine Robotics Innovation Centre, as an Associate Member.
For Saab Seaeye, the NOC is an important hub in the development of underwater autonomous and robotic systems, and this new membership should further enable Saab Seaeye to collaborate with other strategic partners in the advancement of underwater robotic systems.
Jon Robertson, managing director at Saab Seaeye, said: “Our association with the NOC will allow us to advance the emergence of transformative robotics by continuing to integrate AUV and ROV technologies into electric robotic systems that are smaller, lighter, smarter and more versatile than current operational vehicles.”
Adam Schink, Marine Robotics Innovation Centre Manager at the NOC added, “The concept of transformative technology is already creating a future where readily adaptable systems are able to resolve varied and complex tasks at a much lower cost than ever before. We are delighted to welcome Saab Seaeye to the Innovation Centre – forging links with industry and academia is vital in expanding these frontiers of science and technology.”
