Abyssal joins Marine Robotics Innovation Centre's community
The NOC’s Marine Robotics Innovation Centre has announced that Abyssal is joining its community of partners. This follows the news from earlier in the month that Cellula Robotics has partnered with the Centre.
Abyssal is an independent software engineering company that delivers advanced 3D Visualisation, Simulation, Digitalisation, and Artificial Intelligence solutions.
With its growing multidisciplinary team of 34 people, the company has built long-term relationships with the subsea industry, delivering bespoke state-of-the-art products and technology to key players in this industry ensuring a completely contextualized real-time view of projects, and ensuring that operations can be conducted safely and efficiently.
Abyssal’s technology has been extensively applied in multiple remote, difficult, and hostile environments, mainly in the subsea context, positioning the company at the forefront of delivering products and tools for remote operations and data collection and thus enabling the offshore industry to unlock higher cost savings, driving down risk, taking people out of harm’s way, decreasing CO2 emissions, and increase the quality of data acquired and speed its availability so that better decisions and actions can be taken more quickly.
Aidan Thorn, Innovation Centre manager, said:
“Abyssal is a company that we have been aware of for some time now and we’ve been really impressed with their capabilities. We hope that this new partnership - bringing them into the UK’s hub for the development of pioneering Marine Autonomous Systems - will help them to achieve their goal of fully unmanned operations across multiple sites, vehicles and service providers.”
Rafael Simão, CEO, Abyssal, said:
"We are very happy to be joining the Innovation Center and to be able to engage and collaborate with the NOC community and network. We believe that fully autonomous operations will only be possible through a collaborative effort, and we expect to contribute for that with our expertise in the areas of visualisation, simulation, artificial intelligence and remote control."
