Autonomous Marine Systems

Autonomous Marine Systems Inc. is a marine data company changing the way the world explores and studies the oceans. Using our low-cost fully autonomous sailboat, we deliver persistent ocean intelligence anywhere around the world at 1/10th the cost of existing services, emitting zero CO2, and without risking human life.

The company is developing paid pilots for two large energy companies for fall 2015 for autonomous data collection in support of their offshore operations. Geokinetics, a seismic acquisition company, has signed a letter of intent committing to license 12 Datamarans at a value of $6+ million annually.
