Modus Gets JBA’s Software for Hybrid AUVs

Modus Seabed Intervention has selected JBA Consulting’s (JBA) operational management software, ForeCoast Marine, to help optimize the operation of its Hybrid Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (H-AUV).

The H-AUV capability is part of a significant development programme by Modus, to introduce advanced and disruptive technologies across its range of services.

ForeCoast Marine is an advanced mission scheduling, logistics and metocean risk management system, enabling operational strategies to be optimized throughout the lifetime of a marine project.

The software will be used to develop an advanced AI-based scheduling algorithm to enable efficient task prioritization and routing of the AUV; and to support day-to-day decision making with respect to the timing and sequencing of operations.

Jake Tompkins, Modus CEO said: “Our investment in subsea vehicle operation using the ForeCoast Marine system will ensure our customers can benefit from a differentiated approach to survey, inspection and intervention, providing cost effective, high quality performance. This development is also an important aspect of our field resident AUV road map.”

Mark Lawless, JBA Director said: “We are delighted to be working with Modus on this ground-breaking work, helping to guide their state of the art Hybrid AUV with the most advanced version of ForeCoast Marine to date. The automation of vehicles has the potential to revolutionize offshore operations. We are proud to be part of this transition through the application of ForeCoast Marine’s AI-based module.”
