Unmanned, increasingly autonomous systems present a clear opportunity for commercial and naval operators. Whether it be in the reduction of risk or cost, or the delivery of transformational new capabilities, maritime autonomous systems (MAS) are growing dramatically in importance, offering real competitive and operational advantage.
Solutions employing air, surface and underwater vehicles, increasingly capable of operating in concert, are now emerging. But designing, integrating and proving these new systems such that they can be operated safely and securely alongside manned platforms poses some significant challenges.
QinetiQ Maritime with an autonomous system
QinetiQ's services offer customers the ability to confidently accelerate their adoption of MAS capabilities. Leveraging off our world class facilities and expertise, and experience of integrating complex systems, we are truly independent. Our services include concept development and experimentation support, system level design and integration, and comprehensive test and evaluation. We have an extensive network of partnerships with other industry players and academia and an active programme of research and development. We take pride in our role as a thought leader and innovator in the Maritime sector.
We are excited to be working with the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) and industry partners to deliver a multinational demonstration of unmanned and autonomous systems as part of Unmanned Warrior 2016.
