Sea Machines Robotics, a Boston, US-based developer of autonomous vessel control technology, has established a dealer programme to support the company’s global sales across key commercial marine markets.

The network includes strategic partners who are enabled to sell, install and service the company’s line of intelligent command and control systems. The SM Series products, SM300 and SM200, provide operators with task-driven, computer-guided vessel control, bringing advanced autonomy within reach for small- and large-scale operations.

The Sea Machines dealer network includes: Navtronics (York, Maine, USA); Marine Group Boat Works (San Diego, California, USA); La Conner Maritime (La Conner, Washington, USA); Seacoast Marine Electronics (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada); Pinpoint Electronics (Plymouth, UK); Marble Automation BV (Netherlands);        Technology Ventures (UAE); and CAN Traders & Services (Singapore).

“Establishing this dealer network ensures that customers have access to Sea Machines products and service on a global scale,” said Phil Bourque, director, business development. “We consider each dealer an extension of the Sea Machines factory team, as they are ready to support SM series products from initial sale through post-installation. We look forward to announcing additional dealers in the coming months.”

“With four years of technical development and product testing now completed, we are offering the SM Series of products to the global marine market with extreme confidence. Autonomous and remote-control capability unlock real value in traditional marine operations and open new opportunities on water,” said CEO Michael Gordon Johnson. “Our focus is on tech that enables a new era of marine and maritime operations, one that is empowered with increased capability, productivity and profitability. I am pleased to be working with this group of first-class integrator/dealers that share credence in progress and innovation.”

Sea Machines’ SM product series is available now and can be installed aboard existing or new-build commercial vessels with return on investment typically seen within a year. The company is currently developing advanced perception and navigation assistance technology for a range of vessel types, including container ships. In early 2019, the company will initiate testing of its perception and situational awareness technology aboard one of A.P. Moller-Maersk’s new ice-class container ships.
