    Global lead - remote and autonomous solutions

    Our drive to support remote and autonomous solutions to meet digital demand led us to set up a global network of remote operations centres. Combined with our fleet of uncrewed surface vessels (USVs) and electric remotely operated vehicles, we deliver safe and sustainable remote survey, inspection, piloting and positioning services for the maritime industry.

    Focusing on space automation, artificial intelligence and robotics, SpAARC aims to encourage more research and development of remote asset management capabilities for space, with a flow-on effect and benefits to other industries such as mining, emergency services, agriculture and maritime surveillance.



    Over 874,500 hours of remote operations

    Delivered from 10 global remote operations centres, 365 days a year with 24/7 onshore supervision


    Up to 95 % lower fuel consumption

    By shifting our operations to smaller hybrid uncrewed surface vessels (USVs), there is an immediate reduction in fuel consumption when compared to conventional vessels, which in turn means a large reduction in the overall carbon footprint of our operations


    Up to 100 % reduction of personnel in offshore operations

    By transitioning operations to onshore remote operations centres, in most cases we can remove all personnel from offshore operations for a safer working environment

    Our insights deliver

    Safer operations

    Remote and autonomous solutions can perform the most difficult offshore tasks, allowing our experts to deliver projects from onshore locations safely out of harm’s way while experiencing a healthier work-life balance.

    Faster and more informed decision-making

    Through digitalisation of our remote operations and cloud processing, our clients obtain better quality insights in near real time from the comfort of their office.

    Lower carbon footprint

    Remote and autonomous solutions are a springboard for a more sustainable, safe and liveable world, as our experts manage a fleet of hybrid, fuel efficient uncrewed vessels from onshore locations.
