Our focus is on the development of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) with smart cameras and sonars, a high degree of autonomy, and the ability to operate in challenging conditions, such as strong wave and current. With our systems, we aim to reduce the cost of inspection and intervention of Marine Renewable Energy infrastructure substantially.


  • Remotely operated vehicles and smart systems – fault tolerant control, auto tuning, one-click auto survey, augmented reality visualisations & teleoperation.
  • Sensored telemetry streaming and ocean sensing platforms & technologies.
  • Smart automated manipulator control and real-time 3D localisation and imaging / mapping for 3D reconstruction and intervention.
  • OceanRings: Advanced Control Software.
  • Work-class commercial and Advanced Experimental Smart ROVs.
  • Vehicle operations in high energy sites Inspection of subsea infrastructure (pylons, jackets, cables, moorings) for offshore wind.
