Sea Machines Robotics, a US-based developer of autonomous vessel control systems, has opened a new advanced technology centre in Boston.

The workspace, which is dedicated to accelerating product development and accommodating an expanding team, is located adjacent to the company’s headquarters and vessel testing sites in East Boston’s historic shipyard. The fully renovated space offers a collaborative, open working environment, expansive conference and meeting areas, and is near Logan International Airport and Boston’s public transit system.

“The new Sea Machines technology centre is exciting as it enables us to collaborate more effectively and develop autonomous marine technology for commercial and government customers,” said Jim Daly, COO. “The waterfront location and engaging work environment will be attractive to the region’s top talent and aligns with our core values of having fun while developing innovative new products. This investment reinforces our continued leadership and commitment to making Boston the US hub of maritime autonomous technology, and Sea Machines the unquestioned leader in this space.”

Earlier this year, Sea Machines announced the establishment of a new global dealer programme to support the company’s sales across key commercial marine markets. This includes strategic partners enabled to sell, install, retrofit and service the company’s line of intelligent command and control systems for workboats. The SM Series products, SM300 and SM200, provide marine operators a new era of task-driven, computer-guided vessel control, bringing advanced autonomy within reach for small- and large-scale operations. Sea Machines' SM product series 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. Sea Machines  is currently testing its perception and situational awareness technology aboard one of A.P. Moller-Maersk’s new-build ice-class container ships.
