About Greensea IQ

Greensea IQ develops intelligent ocean solutions that drive technical advancement for defense, transportation, energy, and science applications.

The world on and beneath the waves has long been a source of fascination and mystery. As technology advances, our ability to explore and understand the oceans has grown exponentially. Greensea IQ is the merger of three companies at the forefront of this revolution – Greensea Systems, Bayonet Ocean Vehicles, and Armach Robotics. Each of these organizations has made significant strides in marine technology, revolutionizing the way we work in the ocean. Together, as Greensea IQ, emerges a more powerful and innovative company, committed to making the work that is done on and under the ocean more efficient, safer, and for the protection of earth and humankind.

Greensea IQ is the developer of OPENSEA, an open architecture robotics platform that provides control, navigation, and autonomy for the marine industry. One of the key strengths of OPENSEA’s technology is its adaptability. The software can be integrated into a wide range of underwater vehicles, from remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs). This flexibility makes Greensea IQ’s solutions invaluable for various applications, including offshore energy, scientific research, and maritime defense.

Further notes to Editor

Greensea IQ continues to manufacture the Bayonet line of autonomous underwater ground vehicles (AUGV). Operating from the seafloor to the beachhead, Bayonet AUGVs travel through the harshest conditions where other systems can not. Bayonet AUGVs have been used for UXO search and classification and are suited for near shore inspection for offshore wind and defense, especially in the surf zone. Bayonet AUGVs are available as a Robot as a Service to reduce the initial upfront costs for customers to expand their fleet.

EverClean, the original always clean hull solution originally pioneered by Armach Robotics, will continue with Greensea IQ in a state-of-the-art remote operations center located in Plymouth, MA. EverClean is a proprietary, scalable service solution that provides preventative in-water cleaning and inspection data to maintain optimum vessel performance for extended periods of time.

Greensea IQ continues the progress being made in the field of marine technology by providing the software and hardware that contributes to the sustainable management of marine resources and the protection of underwater ecosystems, as well as the people working on and under the oceans.
