Following several months of fruitful discussions and dialogue, several French players have announced the creation of the AMSSI (Agora for Maritime & Submarine Sustainable Innovations)

New partnership around innovations dedicated to environmental protection underwater

Alcatel Submarine Networks (ASN), iXblue and SeaOwl announce they are joining forces to develop partnerships around innovative technologies dedicated to environmental protection underwater.

These 3 companies are today the core of AMSSI (Agora for Maritime & Submarine Sustainable Innovations); new French and European members will shortly join them to accelerate the emergence of new innovative projects.

This partnership aims to be a French innovation cluster where members share a desire to combine their know-how and technologies with the objective of bringing to life concrete and innovative industrial projects in the maritime and underwater fields, as well as in the fight against climate change. AMSSI will promote R&D, innovation and French know-how.

AMSSI has a proactive approach towards the concretisation and implementation of the various technologies developed through its members’ R&D programmes, leading to the industrial deployment of its projects.

By combining the expertise of its members, AMSSI will continue to develop an ecosystem capable of meeting major technological challenges and building an effective and relevant community for maritime technologies and services.

Among the developments involving the most advanced technologies of its partners, member companies are already working on an innovative project: the development of a remotely operated hydrographic surface vessel, i.e. a drone capable of carrying out long-distance survey missions.

Other projects related to climate change and marine digitalisation are also being studied.
