Intelligent Marine Technology
Dynautics is a pioneering provider of intelligent technology for unmanned marine missions worldwide.
Our capabilities are built on 20-year experience of scientific and engineering rigour in vehicle control algorithm development and associated electronics. Our technical leadership is supported through simulation tools and technical authorship of marine autopilot heading and track control standards (IEC62065).
We are co-authors of the Marine Autonomous Surface Ship Code of practice. We strive to be thought leaders in defining the route to Marine Vehicle Autonomy.
However complex your challenges, we will push the boundaries of marine electronics to devise the precise solution you need.
Helping you Deliver
Your requirements and your mission are our starting point. Ideally, we follow a process of Simulation, Design, Test and Verification and together we rigorously and pragmatically drive for a rapid solution.
When you start the vehicle design process, our Ship Sim or AUV Sim can help determine the most effective hull design and propulsion types, positions and characteristics. These simulators are the result of several years of rigorous scientific development and have been proven tools in reducing the time to mission acceptance.
We strive to understand your payload and data requirements. This enables us to offer the best technology to suits your needs. We offer standard or customisable electronic modules, based on proven technologies which help to reduce time to launch, and to ensure maximum reliability.
Time to launch is usually one of your important parameters: ultimately, time to ‘mission acceptance’ trials assumes even greater importance. For this reason, we work with you to ensure you achieve a successful mission. Every mission, and therefore every vehicle, is potentially different, so we are focused on understanding your overall objectives.
Custom electronics and system engineering can be undertaken internally by our experienced PCB designers and electronic engineers. Rapid prototyping and in-house firmware coding on development systems allow us to accelerate the time to test and validation. We make extensive use of proprietary firmware libraries, designed by us over the past 20 years, to minimise development time.
Developing a test environment, based on your mission parameters, allows us to design simulation tools to save time leading up to on-water sea trials, which in turn saves money. After hardware-in-the loop testing, sea trials are used as the confirmation and final validation of what has already been tested in the lab.
Together, we commission the vehicle and we can utilise our combined ‘on water’ experience to verify the performance against an established test plan. Ongoing, we can remotely monitor the vehicles characteristics and modify variables such as power consumption.
Delivery to meet Customer needs
We are a trusted technology partner to clients in sectors as diverse as offshore energy and mining, oceanography, marine transport and defence & security. At the heart of our proven approach is our belief in the power of logic, precision and scientific integrity to deliver commercial results.

With whom we work
Our technology helps our clients voyage into the unknown with confidence. We pioneer innovative solution to vehicle control, management and communication to enable your mission to be successful. Whether it’s a new design or conversion to an unmanned vehicle we work with you to reduce your time to launch.
Careers at Dynautics
Dynautics offers a dynamic team orientated work place. We have demanding clients who expect a high level of integrity, innovation and delivery. If you have the technical skills and drive in either hardware, firmware or software engineering disciplines we would like to hear from you.
Job Title: Senior Electronic/Software Engineer
– Working with a dynamic team that takes ideas from concept to developed products in a fast-moving marine autonomous market
– Ideal candidate will be multi-disciplined with a solid background in embedded firmware development but also an understanding of the overall electronics integration of marine sensors and systems, ideally in a commercial environment.
– Working in a small team of creative and focused engineers to deliver solutions to the end customers, ensuring high quality and robust designs for a tough autonomous marine environment.
Details of the role
Talented engineer required for small dynamic company working on exciting autonomous marine electronics projects including control, communication and management of autonomous surface and underwater crafts.
The successful candidate will be a theorist with a practical focus on delivery – able to relate theory to practice in a close-knit team and will have a desire to be involved in design from concept to client delivery.
An understanding of embedded systems from both a hardware and firmware. Additionally, the candidate should be creative and technical proficient to understand data produced by a range of environmental sensors (such as Radar, AIS, Cameras) and an ability to translate their outputs into a useable data format for applications such as collision avoidance. Data Extraction and Data Analysis are then used to identify the critical data required for each application.
You will need to be at least Degree qualified –typically in Electronic design, Maths or Physics related subjects.
To be considered you will need to be able to demonstrate experience of the following:
- Embedded C and C Programming – ideal with Matlab, C++, QT
- Electronic systems, which must include commercial electronic design experience
- Data simulation and manipulation skills considered desirable.
- This is an exciting role where you will be involved in all stages of development – including sea trials.
- This is a friendly, committed and helpful group of people within a company that is expanding steadily.
If you meet the criteria for this role and would like to apply we would very much like to hear from you
