Greensea’s OPENSEA® open-architecture software platform expands the horizons of marine robotics. Oceanology International, Booth H551


Marine robotics technology specialist, Greensea, is seeing significantly increased interest in its OPENSEA® open-architecture software platform, already widely recognized as the most advanced robotics technology framework the maritime industry has to offer. The company is exhibiting at the upcoming Oceanology International show at Excel, London, from Tuesday 15th to Thursday 17th March 2022.

Developed and built by Greensea’s professional team of robotics, electrical, systems and software engineers in conjunction with manufacturer partnerships, the OPENSEA platform integrates vehicles, equipment and sensors into a single robotic system. To date, this holistic solution is used as the basis for more than 2,000 systems in the underwater, surface, manned and unmanned sectors.

OPENSEA mitigates technical risks and development costs. Its buyers know that they are investing in a solid, adaptable and proven foundation – flexible and functional open architecture software on which they can leverage their technologies and products instead of spending huge sums of money and time on building an entirely new system. Greensea also provides the OPENSEA Software Development Kit (SDK) which helps developers configure and customize OPENSEA to their own needs; the platform’s distributed framework isolates IP details so that partners can keep their developments private.

With industry-leading OEMs including VideoRay (manufacturer of underwater ROVs), Klein Marine Systems (manufacturers of marine surveillance and security solutions) and innovators such as Ocean Power Technologies, Greensea is proud to confirm that its strategic partners deploy OPENSEA as a foundation for exciting and innovative emerging technologies. This year alone, OPENSEA is being used as a reliable and stable foundation for ongoing projects, including untethered ROVs, long-range command and control functionality, and resident robots.

As a vehicle- and sensor-independent system, OPENSEA’s modular, open, flexible and scalable software is applicable in a wide variety of contexts. It is currently at the heart of integration and control solutions for vehicles such as ROVs, AUVs, USVs, submarines and workboats, as well as sensors such as altimeters, magnetometers, compasses and fluorimeters. The OPENSEA platform also integrates with equipment ranging from cameras and data loggers to joysticks, winches and LARS hardware – the launch and recovery systems used to safely and quickly transfer underwater devices and divers. trade to and from the water.

Greensea’s Evergreen Program is a subscription-based program providing major software updates for the duration of the subscription, ensuring the vehicle is ready for future hardware updates and technology enhancements. Customer input from the OPENSEA community is key to keeping the platform up to date and expanding its capabilities: Greensea engineers spend an average of around 30 days at sea each year (or the equivalent via remote technologies) working with operators, acting on their feedback to introduce new sensors, components and features. The company’s four-part service plan ensures that customers are not only fully supported, but also encouraged to engage closely with Greensea staff to drive further product improvements. Customizable support packages accommodate everything from multi-day offerings to full-service paid plans.

The OPENSEA platform reinforces Greensea’s belief that the future trajectory of the maritime industry will encompass increased adoption of small, agile and cost-effective underwater and surface vehicles. OPENSEA’s scalable, open-architecture software will support integrated navigation and location systems as well as control and autonomy, providing operators with a simple and intuitive human-machine interface for vehicle supervision.
