Nicolaus Radford joins Crownsmen Energy to discuss Houston Mechatronics. They are developing an ecosystem of cloud-based subsea robots, software, and subsea services delivered in a modern business model to the offshore industry. These include our flagship product, Aquanaut, its Dept. of Defense counterpart, and a suite of hardware and software to update existing ROVs(Remotely operated underwater vehicle). HMI’s robotic systems will be delivered to commercial and Department of Defense (DoD) customers primarily through a Robotics as a Service (RaaS) subscription business model but also direct product sales where required. RaaS products are controlled through HMI’s Wavelink, our over the horizon remote connectivity. This modernized approach to subsea robotics as a service has also resulted in the development of a range of products for retrofit/upgrading legacy ROV/AUV platforms. Nicolaus believes that there are many changes to make to conventional ROVs and AUVs(Autonomous underwater vehicles), that will ensure near term revenue opportunities and help push the entire industry forward thereby also increasing our overall value. Our services provide customers the necessary data and manipulation capability to support maximizing production and improving asset value while minimizing their operating footprint, operating cost, carbon footprint, and offshore HS&E exposure.
