The collaboration between eSonar and Aquatec will be focused on the development of an innovative situational awareness sensor suite for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles


The challenge called for proposals to develop innovative perception capabilities for unscrewed maritime systems, by a team comprising a Canadian and a UK company. eSonar and Aquatec have partnered to develop an innovative, modular, and extensible perception solution for AUVs that can be adapted to platforms of different sizes and regulatory regimes.

This technology will better enable AUVs to navigate and perform survey and data collection missions in nearshore and more confined waterways.
