Autonomous Survey Services

We are world leaders in the planning and execution of autonomous surveys using a wide range of technologies, and primarily utilising subsea glider platforms.

Such surveys are governed by several factors including project objectives, metocean conditions, bathymetry, the technology proposed, vehicle endurance and payload configuration. Our experts comprehensively assess all factors to ensure the most appropriate technology (platform and sensor) is adopted for each specific project.

Data Management & Dissemination

We have developed a secure cloud based data acquisition, management and visualisation system that includes the automation of vehicle communications, data archiving, QAQC, and automated reporting and data delivery.

The web portal allows our client to access data in near-real-time for integration in crisis response or operational modelling systems, track assets using an online mapping function, log mission event observations, modify sampling configurations or submit navigational change requests.

Third Party Servicing & Piloting

In addition to managing our own fleet of autonomous vehicles, we also manage, store, service, test and deploy autonomous vehicles for third parties. All vehicles under our management undergo rigorous testing prior to deployment, in accordance with our developed Release to Mission (RtM) framework.

We have built exceptional credibility in the servicing domain, and currently have an exclusive agreement with Teledyne Webb Research to service and repair third party Slocum gliders on their behalf in the Asia Pacific region.

Traditional Metocean Survey Solutions

Unmanned vehicles have an extremely wide range of applications, however there are some scenarios where this technology is not best suited, and for such situations, or to augment autonomous campaigns we can provide traditional metocean monitoring solutions.

We have extensive experience in the planning and execution of complex metocean surveys, and specialise in the design of real-time monitoring systems. We have also developed a capability in deployment of fixed systems which can communicate data intermittently to autonomous vehicles.
