Robosys Automation has unveiled its new subsea advanced navigation and vessel control solution, Advanced Swimmer Delivery Vehicles (ASDVs), reportedly the first in their class.

The ASDVs will safely and comfortably enable dive units to be transported to and from remote and challenging locations. Operating in three modes, surface, semi-submerged and submerged, initially the ASDVs will be crewed, with decision-aided navigational support.

The ASDVs will feature the company’s Voyager AI-supported advanced navigation and vessel control systems, enabling critical navigational and AI enhanced decision-aided support to the crew.

Following completion of their initial project, the ASDVs will be upgraded in a phased roll-out to feature an autonomous mode allowing autonomous self-navigation, a return to base and loiter facility whether operating on the surface or subsea.

This launch follows Robosys’ announcement that the business has secured a significant contract with an undisclosed international customer for a fleet of Swimmer Delivery Vehicles.

Once the ASDVs are upgraded they will be able to be remotely operated and monitored from a mothership, Ground Control Centre (GCC), or from a Remote Operation Centre (ROC).

Voyager AI is a world-leading maritime artificial intelligence (AI) software developed and supplied by Robosys Automation. Operators benefit from decision-aided autonomous operations with collision and obstacle avoidance.

This is on top of anti-grounding, which enables safe passage. When all combined with AI reasoning, it becomes a crucial component of operating in challenging subsea and surface waterborne environments.

Aditya Nawab, CEO of Robosys Automation, which is headquartered at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton, UK, said; “We are delighted to unveil Robosys’ new subsea autonomous navigation and vessel control solution. 

“Robosys is already regarded as a leader in its advanced maritime autonomy provision to surface vessels of all types and sizes, therefore it was only natural to provide subsea solutions when further developing Voyager AI. It is an exciting time, whilst also reassuring to know that we are helping to support safer and smarter (and cleaner) seas.”
