UK MAS - Maritime Autonomous System
MARITIME AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS WORKSHOP - Wednesday 17 July 2013
The Marine Industries Alliance, supported by the Transport KTN, Robotics and Autonomous Systems Special Interest Group and UK NEST, plans to hold a workshop that will outline how and why UK industry, government & academia should collaborate, as a community, in a Maritime Autonomous Systems development programme.

IMPACT OF GLOBAL TRENDS
We are seeing a new, multi-polar, world economic configuration emerging. This will have
profound impacts on commercial shipping requirements and natural resource exploitation; an
emerging shift of geopolitical configurations where future competitions and conflicts between
nations is more likely to involve future competition at sea. This will pose threats to peace and
stability. Coupled with these threats, new business opportunities are opening up for naval

The key to accurate hydrographic mapping is continuous monitoring, for which the SNAV platform, presently under development, is a robotic ocean workhorse. Based on a stable SWASH hull. This design is under development by a consortium of British engineers. The robot ship uses no diesel fuel to monitor the oceans autonomously (COLREGS compliant) at relatively high speed 24/7 and 365 days a year - only possible with the revolutionary (patent) energy harvesting system. The hullform is ideal for automatic release and recovery of ROVs or towed arrays, alternating between drone and fully autonomous modes. UK and international development partners are welcome. This vessel pays for itself in fuel saved every ten years.
