dotOcean, based in Brugge with hubs in Gent and Leuven, Belgium, is a leader in pioneering autonomous control and advanced situational awareness software technology for the maritime, civil and security industry. With its AYB (Automate Your Boat) technology in combination with situational awareness it is able to make new or existing vessels and vehicles autonomous and intelligent.
Founded in 2008, dotOcean is also well known for its smart sediment profilers like its GraviProbe and its DensX.
In today’s world most waterborne activities are still executed with manned vessels. These vessels require significant OPEX and CAPEX, mainly related to the presence of people on board of the vessel. Reducing these vessels to smaller, maybe even single purpose, autonomous platforms, cuts away most of the TCO. The water related remote sensing market (ex. mapping, imaging, monitoring…) is most susceptible to adopt further integration.
dotOcean is active in several maritime organizations:
