Mesh Autonomous Photography Drones

It is incredibly important to survey coral reefs regularly to document any changes to this critical ecosystem and to ground-truth satellite observations.

Our autonomous mapping robots can individually scan over a hectare of area per day, taking over 4000 images and creating high-quality orthomosaic images of a single site of interest.

Our robots are also designed to be operated in a large fleet, allowing a single operator to control multiple robots enabling the complete scan of an entire reef in a single day.

A large-scale project over ten years to connect scientists to the Great Barrier Reef via a series of underwater robot hubs extending from the reef lagoon to one thousand meters.

Scientists will be able to make scientific observations and collect data remotely in real-time by connecting their own experiments to an underwater hub. This will provide a cost-effective solution, leveraging new technology, to better study the GBR and the continental shelf.

Based on a similar project currently being operated in the United States by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute – Monterey Accelerated Research System.
