Bayonet Ocean Vehicles has confirmed it will be demonstrating its Bayonet 250 autonomous underwater ground vehicle during Ocean Business, 18-20 April 2023 at the National Oceanographic Centre, UK.

During the demonstration, Bayonet will show the features of the Bayonet line of vehicles including portability, payload capability, and ease of operation. The demonstration will also include showing the vehicle’s autonomous capability, and over-the-horizon command and control technology provided by fellow exhibitor Greensea Systems, Inc.

Bayonet will be operating its Bayonet 250 crawler in the hospitality area HS04 remotely from Greensea’s Stand L13. Both teams will be available to share details on the autonomous underwater ground vehicles, and how the open architecture platform improves safety and productivity in robotic operations. 

Rob Howard, Chief Growth Officer at Greensea, said: “We are excited to be offering visitors to Ocean Business a live interactive experience with the Bayonet 250, while also showcasing Greensea’s Safe C2 over-the-horizon command and control, allowing for the vehicles to be operated from any location.”

Bayonet’s vehicles come in three sizes, the Bayonet 150, 250, and 350, for increased scalability. The modular set up allows quick and easy vehicle configuration with a wide range of sensor payloads. 

This adaptability makes them a powerful tool for use in a range of industries, including offshore oil and gas, marine renewables, maritime security and defense, marine salvage, science and engineering. 

The Bayonet crawlers are built on OPENSEA, a fully open architecture operating platform, from marine robotics technology specialist, Greensea. Running on this software, the crawlers are one of the most stable and adaptable operating systems in marine robotics. Vehicle operators benefit from improved operation, accuracy through precise navigation, vehicle autonomy, component and payload integration, and over-the-horizon command and control.

Nick Hartman, VP Strategy and Growth, and General Manager of Bayonet Ocean Vehicles, said: “It is amazing to see the technology integrate between software and hardware, and give an operator the ability to perform job specific tasks, with no risk or harm to themselves.”

The extensive feature list lets the crawlers perform a range of tasks, including: surveys for nearshore, geophysical and geotechnical marine surveys, inspection and maintenance activities, environmental monitoring of the seafloor, beach zone, rivers and marshes, coastal dredging support, or littoral warfare, such as mine detection and clearance.
