For the first time visitors to this major industry exhibition in London in March will be able to see and touch our unique unmanned surface vehicle (USV).
Fresh back from sea trials with AutoNaut off Oban in Scotland founder directors David Maclean and Mike Poole will be on hand at Oi 2014 to explain her potential and answer questions.
“It will be a great moment to show AutoNaut to the world,” said David Maclean. “Interest until now has come through the industry grape vine. We have made our first sale, for delivery in March during OI. We are working with a range of other industry ‘early adopters’ to build boats to meet their specific needs.
“We are finding a wide range of needs requiring boats from 1m to 5m with an even wider range of sensors. After a year of intensive development we are ready to launch into the new markets made possible by AutoNaut’s unique capabilities.”
The AutoNaut USV on show is built for the competitive project ‘Long Endurance Marine Unmanned Surface Vehicles’ (LEMUSV) run by the National Oceanography Centre (NOC), with input from the MoD through dstl, as well as the National Environment Research Council, and Small Business Research Initiative.
She represents a new level of capability for very long endurance ocean research and data gathering.
