Robosys and Landau Marine announces collaboration in maritime autonomy for naval operations

Date: 12 Sep 2023 Author: Chief Editor

🎯 AI based Maritime Autonomy & Navigational specialist, Robosys Automation and leading UK specialist installer and integrator, Landau Marine, have announced at DSEi in London (UK), a new pioneering collaboration that enables full stack maritime autonomy for both new-build and retrofit vessels and naval craft. The new collaboration brings together a leading UK integrator-installer-service provider with a proven AI maritime autonomy software developer, to enable customers to swiftly convert their vessels to fully autonomous and/or lean-crewed operations.

Robosys’ Voyager AI software enables crewed, lean crewed, optionally unmanned, and fully unmanned vessel operations at the switch of a button. It delivers efficient Remote Control and reasoned Autonomous operations from a remote operations centre (ROC) or ground control station (GCS), either ashore or afloat from a mothership.

UK headquartered Landau Marine supplies installation, integration, and maintenance services for numerous defence clients; including NavyX, the Royal Navy’s Autonomy & Lethality Accelerator. Landau capabilities encompass all aspects of technology integration linked to vessel design and construction, with a particular focus on zero emission technology and decarbonisation initiatives.

🎤 Roger Cerrato, Sales Director at Landau commented at the DSEi launch event, “Landau helps customers install and best utilise new technologies such as Robosys Automation’s Voyager AI suite. This new partnership with Robosys reflects the Landau ethos, being to provide innovative installation and integration solutions that are beneficial to our customers, our business, and our world, in efficiency, economic, and environmental terms. We are dedicated to supporting our commercial and defence customer base in their requirements for more innovative and effective solutions, such as retrofitting a crewed vessel to become an autonomous craft at speeds of up to 45 knots, delivering many benefits including helping to drive the net zero agenda.”

🎤 Nigel Lee, CSO of Robosys Automation comments, “We are delighted to be working with Landau Marine. This partnership will provide an end-to-end solution for all customers looking to integrate Voyager AI to a new build or as a retrofit to an existing workboat or craft, as Landau’s facilities and team are second to none. The use of Voyager AI significantly extends a traditional vessel’s lifespan through straightforward and swift retrofitting. This enables increased cost-effective, safer, and environmentally focused outcomes for those who wish to continue using their existing craft, but now with the added benefits of crewed, lean-crewed, optionally uncrewed, and uncrewed options, dependent on the specific challenge.”

Robosys’ Voyager AI Vessel solution offers IMO Degree 4 autonomy, which is ideal for the defence sector as it can be retrofitted to almost any vessel or workboat. Robosys Automation’s systems offer remote control as well as advanced and intelligent autonomous navigation, with platform and payload control which can be integrated to most vessel systems, together with collision avoidance, and systems monitoring options, delivering a proven and trusted full-stack maritime AI autonomy solution.
