Controlling wave-propelled USVs

In the 25 years since Dynautics was established (take a look at our company timeline here), we have encountered a wide range of vessels, missions and combinations of propulsors and steering devices, for both surface and subsurface vessels. The team has developed methods to combine control parameters in different ways to suit the vessel


Tracking the sun with floating solar

Floating solar presents many benefits, offering a source of renewable energy where land is scarce. Instead of covering valuable land, this technology uses large bodies of water, usually lakes and reservoirs, to host arrays of solar panels. Floating solar studies have also shown multiple water quality and water retention benefits, with a reduction in


Dynautics vessel control system for surface-submersible assault craft

In 2023, advanced maritime technology specialists, Subsea Craft, approached Dynautics to collaborate on the vessel control system for VICTA, the company's next-generation maritime payload delivery platform and “the world’s most advanced surface-submersible assault craft” (Subsea Craft). Dynautics has since developed a customised control system for Subsea Craft based on its commercially proven SPECTRE autopilot


Nurturing future maritime autonomy talent

An article by Dr Henry Robinson, CEO of Dynautics. For some years now, Dynautics has supported the development of future marine technologist talent by sponsoring and working hands-on with the Society of Maritime Industries’ (SMI) MAChallenge competition. The 2022-23 challenge was particularly rewarding, so I wanted to share some of my experiences from the finals, which


Controlling the future of maritime operations

As maritime stakeholders increasingly look to uncrewed vessel technology to complete a wider range of offshore survey, surveillance and inspection tasks, the systems that are used to control these flexible platforms are developing apace. Unmanned surface vessels (USVs) offer a low impact, non-invasive and cost-effective solution for an industry that has set itself ambitious net


Dynautics supports multipurpose USV project

Dynautics recently worked on a collaborative project with HydroSurv and Sonardyne International to demonstrate extended range uncrewed operations using a hybrid powered vessel. The REAV-60 design from Exeter-based USV developer HydroSurv, named USV Decibel, successfully completed its first sea trials for Sonardyne at Smart Sound Plymouth in early May 2022, a key milestone for the project

Visit us at Oceanology in London

We are counting down to Oceanology International, which takes place at London ExCel from 15-17 March 2022. The Dynautics team will be exhibiting on stand P301. Visit our stand to see unmanned systems technologies on display, chat to us about your uncrewed vehicle management requirements or just to say hello! After all, it has been a


Back out there at industry events

The team at Dynautics was delighted to be able to get out again to trade shows and conferences this year, following the enforced hiatus in the maritime events programme due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We took part in a fantastic, long-awaited industry gathering, namely Ocean Business at the National Oceanographic Centre in Southampton in October.


Building momentum with HydroSurv

We aim to deliver uncrewed vessel solutions, including autopilots, power management and communications systems, that match our customers' mission objectives. Over the course of 2021, we have continued to develop strong business relationships with numerous uncrewed vessel designers and manufacturers. HydroSurv is a great case study example of how taking the time to understand our
