Maritime robot makes NEVA debut

September 19, 2017

The role of NEVA as a showcase for Russian maritime technology has been underlined at this year’s event by developers from MariNet, the National Technological Initiative (NTI), in a presentation of what has been dubbed the first ever anthropomorphic integrated marine robotic system for offshore.

The project is the culmination of work overseen by the OJSC Scientific Production Association to deploy ‘Android Techniques’ to provide the interaction of underwater, surface and air unmanned vehicles. An Intellectual Information Management System (IMS) allows the operative overseeing equipment management to develop a mission, program each robot, monitor the process execution and technical conditions, collect and process incoming data, correct the actions or change the mission completely.

The development of offshore projects requires the creation of innovative solutions by the scientific community that will enable operators to increase development of offshore resources by exploiting cost-effective and safe technologies.

The NEVA showcasing of the innovation demonstrates that new, homegrown technology is among the top priorities of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade. Mikhail Ivanov, director of the Ministry’s Department of Machine-Tool Manufacture & Investment Mechanical Engineering has earmarked innovative solutions in the offshore sector as a priority for increasing the share of domestic components.
