We understand that every uncrewed vessel presents a unique set of challenges and that sea trials are expensive and demanding in terms of time, personnel and equipment. Trial conditions can’t be controlled, mistakes can be expensive and weather delays lead to mounting costs.

Dynautics has an established and successful track record in vehicle design collaboration, with BAE Systems, HR Wallingford and AutoNaut among our development partners. We focus on your overall mission goal and tailor our services to reduce your time to launch.

Greg Trauthwein interviews Dr Henry Robinson and Kieran Breheny of Dynautics about their leading work in the command and control of uncrewed surface vessels and subsea autonomous vehicles.

Our range of simulators, design expertise and experience means you gain a more cost-effective means of testing your vehicle with faster, more efficient and simpler development capability. Dynautics’ process of simulation, electronic system engineering and sea trialling gives our customers the leading edge on speed to market.

The robust processes that we have implemented and perfected over time are redefining the way that our customers conduct their sea trials. Using inhouse simulators, we assess configurations at the design stage, resolving potential issues early on to achieve the optimum propulsion and control actuator set up. The result is deployment of a more reliable system for fewer and more successful sea trials.

Every vessel has its own unique challenges. Our process of simulation, electronic system engineering, and sea trialling provides us with a unique advantage of speed to market.  We are able to offer control and navigation electronics, power management and UHF and Satellite communication alongside many other systems to make our clients’ vision a success.

What thruster systems will work best on which vehicle?  How should the thrusters and control actuators be configured?  Dynautics brings to bear its experience with a wide range of vehicles, including manned submarines, Work Class ROVs, and surface craft from the smallest (1m or less) up to fast patrol boats.  We work with our clients to achieve the optimum propulsion and control actuator configuration to make the client’s mission a success.  Using our simulators, we can help our clients to assess the effectiveness of the configuration at the design stage.

This means that fewer sea trials will be required and they will be more successful, because many of the teething problems will have been solved earlier in the process.

Our robust processes have redefined what is possible for all of our clients and ensured the most reliable system can be deployed.
