Robosys Automation and the Australian Maritime College’s AMC Search have signed a three-year partnering agreement to enhance MASS certified training, aiming to drive remote operator training on a worldwide scale. 

The announcement was made at the inaugural International Conference on Maritime Autonomy and Remote Navigation (ICMAR Nav) conference held 27-30 Nov 2023 at the University of Tasmania’s Australian Maritime College, AMC Search, Launceston, Australia.

Through extensive maritime autonomous surface ships (MASS) trials spanning crewed and uncrewed scenarios, UK headquartered Robosys Automation and Australia’s AMC Search have worked together to support mariners with the latest technology, training and procedures for combined human and AI operations.

At Ocean Business 2023, Nick Bonser of AMC Search, together with Nigel Lee of Robosys, presented a joint session regarding these MASS trials, entitled ‘Understanding Human and AI Collaboration for future shipping’. 

The trials featured Robosys’ revolutionary AI-driven maritime autonomy software suite, VOYAGER AI, which enables ‘traditional’ crewed vessels and USVs to become fully remote controllable from a mothership or shoreside, with added features such as collision avoidance and decision aids.

The MASS trials were undertaken from AMC Search’s cutting-edge Maritime Simulation Center, located in Launceston in Tasmania, with scenarios conducted in isolation, and as a mixed human-machine environment, spanning numerous challenging and varied shipping situations.

AMC Search selected Robosys’ VOYAGER AI software for the delivery of its training programs because it provides simple, flexible mission and user-defined operational settings for both manned and unmanned systems.

AMC Search’s Simulation & Autonomous Maritime Instructor, Nick Bonser, said; “We are delighted to have partnered with Robosys Automation because of their deep expertise in this area.

“They are dynamic and agile, with the ability to support our cutting-edge simulator operations and MASS operator training syllabus, along with delivering Collision Avoidance Decision Aid (CADA) capability for our students.”

Robosys’ CSO, Nigel Lee, commented; “The team at Robosys looks forward to building upon this mutually beneficial long-term partnership with AMC Search, where we can jointly improve the safety and efficiency of sustainable and smart future maritime operations.”
