Marine Robots Development
Geraint West, Director of National Marine Facilities at the National Oceanography Centre, is correct when he says: “The ocean is a dynamic, rapidly changing environment that is a challenge for scientists…”
Engineering subsea cable equipment to withstand this challenging environment for marine innovators, like these hopeful grant recipients, is what PMI does best.
Recently, a competition to improve ocean research methods has awarded £250,000 to innovators looking to develop robot technology.
Five proposals have each been awarded £50,000 to develop an integrated system for the National Oceanography Centre that will coordinate a suite of autonomous systems, such as a fleet of gliders, to gather data over a period of months at sea. Read more…
