Headquartered at the UK’s National Oceanography Centre with offices and live testing facilities around the world, we have over two decades of experience in supporting a wide range of industries and market segments, including commercial shipping, surveying, defence, search and rescue and more.

Voyager AI Vessel

Enabling uncrewed, remote piloting and autonomous operations

uncrewed, remote piloting and autonomous operationsVoyager AI Vessel is a proven and trusted full-stack software solution that can be deployed on purpose-built USVs and can also be used to retrofit existing vessels with optionally uncrewed, remote control and fully autonomous capabilities. Using sophisticated sensor fusion of data from radar, AIS, ARPA and other sources, it can deliver up to IMO degree 4 autonomy at speeds of up to 45 knots.

The powerful software uses AI-based perception and smart object detection to enable COLREGS-compliant automatic collision avoidance, anti-grounding, and mission continuity during loss-of-communications events.
