Kongsberg Discovery

Information Developer - Uncrewed Platforms

Do you believe that our oceans are vital to our future? Are you curious about these unexplored depths, and want to create technology for exploring some of the most uninhabitable places on Earth? We believe that gathering information about the state and changing conditions of the oceans will improve our understanding and thereby our ability to improve how we and our maritime surroundings work together in the future.

We create, design and build autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and autonomous unmanned surface vessels (USVs) that can explore from the sea surface and down to 6000 metres below. Our vehicles are autonomous, and can operate alone for days at a time, gathering information about the seafloor, the water, and objects in the water. We create and integrate advanced sensors for information gathering, maritime navigation and communication. More information on our products can be found at www.unmanned-survey.com and https://www.kongsberg.com/maritime/products/marine-robotics/
