Marine AI has confirmed that it will be co-exhibiting with Unmanned Survey Solutions (USS) at the Oceanology International (Oi22) exhibition and conference in London. USS’ next-generation uncrewed surface vessels (USVs) utilise Marine AI’s GUARDIAN Vision artificial intelligence software to provide threat object detection and classification capabilities.

Oi22 will allow the companies to perform three days of on-water demonstrations, and validate the new technology developments with USS’s Accession USV following a recent phase of testing.

GUARDIAN Vision is designed to provide a multi-platform, scalable solution with TLS-encrypted security that can be deployed on the edge for AI Vision applications and services. The platform includes a number of plug-ins that are deployed in conjunction with the core CV (computer vision) capability, providing real-time, distinct technical solutions for different CV sectors.

Matthew Ratsey, MD of Marine AI, said: “We are delighted to exhibit with James Williams and his team at USS; it is a fabulous opportunity to demonstrate our successful collaboration with their USV showing our software to be truly vehicle agnostic and able to be successfully deployed and utilised for USV operations. We very much look forward to Oi22 and meeting visitors to discuss their USV operations both in scope and number.”

James Williams, Director of USS, commented: “Marine AI’s ‘GUARDIAN Vision’ package has provided new and exciting features for our already state-of-the-art USVs, significantly enhancing our situational awareness and control. We very much look forward to demonstrating our combined capability during Oi22.”
