W•SENSE has joined the National Oceanography Centre’s (NOC) Marine Robotics Innovation Centre as a strategic partner.
W•SENSE is an underwater wireless networking and communications systems developer.
The new partnership will enable W•SENSE to collaborate and share expertise with the Centre’s other strategic partners in the advancement of marine autonomous technology.
W•SENSE director, Professor Chiara Petrioli, said: “We are extremely honoured to be welcomed into the NOC family. It’s a great step for W•SENSE and a massive vote of confidence. We’re very much looking forward to further developing and testing our technology with input from the talented team at the NOC. The W•SENSE team is looking forward to seeing what we can achieve together.”
Adam Schink, Innovation Centre manager at the NOC, said: “The concept of transformative and disruptive technology is already creating a future where readily adaptable systems that are incubated and developed by the NOC and its partners are able to tackle varied and complex marine science challenges at a much lower cost than ever before. We are delighted to welcome W•SENSE to the Innovation Centre and together we have identified and are currently planning numerous collaborative projects to network multiple underwater sensors, autonomous underwater and surface vehicles together.”
