SeeByte says that Phase 1 of a contract awarded by the Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) has been completed following a successful demo. The work seeks to provide a flexible Autonomy Framework for the range of oceanographic and environmental scenarios outlined in the SBRI AAOSN call.
An on-water demonstration of the MAF (Maritime Autonomy Framework) integration onto the ASV C-Enduro was held in Stokes Bay, Gosport. The event was attended by senior military personnel and members of the maritime scientific community. Attendees were briefed on the use of MAF, and how it is facilitating the expansion and technology cross-over between maritime security and marine science. The framework has a wide range of applications from oil spill detection to autonomous tagged fish tracking behaviours.
