SeaRobotics Corporation (SeaRobotics), a leading developer of marine robotics and autonomous systems, has been awarded a U.S. Navy Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I contract to develop a CRawling Amphibious Breacher (CRAB), an amphibious robotic crawler capable of proofing shoreline assault lanes and neutralizing explosive and non-explosive obstacles to ensure clear landing zones for Armed Forces personnel.
SeaRobotics Corporation (SeaRobotics), a leading developer of marine robotics and autonomous systems, has announced the development of a new multi-mission autonomous surface vessel (ASV) in partnership with The Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland (Marine Institute). The SR-Endurance 8.0, the latest model from SeaRobotics’ Endurance Class of ASVs, was designed to enhance the Marine Institute’s training and research program in ocean mapping, observation and characterization.
As the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season (June 1 through November 30) officially gets underway, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center is urging residents up and down the down the US eastern seaboard and in and around the Gulf of Mexico to take all necessary precaution as, once again, meteorological forecasts favor “above normal” storm activity.
The parallels between advanced marine robotics and theme park rollercoasters may appear only fleeting at first glance, but specialized engineering for the theme park industry has always been an important part of the SeaRobotics service portfolio. Our mainstay ocean industry customers—mostly commercial and military entities looking to invest in Autonomous Surface Vehicle (ASV) technology—are usually surprised to hear that we have a well-established client list in the entertainment industry. “So, you guys build rollercoasters, too?” they often quiz.
In recent decades, marine robotics has proven to be the key enabling technology in the execution of increasingly complex at-sea missions. One clear manifestation of this is the ascendency of Autonomous Surface Vehicles, or ASVs. While early ASVs (back in the 1990s) were mostly inspired by aquaculture, modern-day advances in multibeam sonar, data processing, and GNSS positions have ushered in a new era of high-quality data acquisition. Today, ASVs are the preferred means of instrumentation among hydrographers.
