Brunswick Corp. said in a statement that it promoted Jason Arbuckle to the new position of marine autonomy technology lead.

“Automation and control technologies are rapidly emerging, critical enablers for delivering innovation through smart-connected recreational marine products and experiences,” CEO Dave Foulkes said in a statement. “Jason is a proven leader who will help us advance our capabilities, providing leadership to our emerging autonomy teams across the entire enterprise.”

The appointment follows last November’s hiring of John Oenick as director of enterprise electrification at Brunswick and is part of its continued effort to bolster the company’s ACES strategy: autonomy, connectivity, electrification and shared access.

Arbuckle has been with Brunswick for nearly 25 years, joining the Mercury Marine team in 1997. His work has been granted more than 45 patents in marine control systems, including Mercury’s autopilot systems, SkyHook dynamic positioning and autopilot-related BowHook and DriftHook features.

“Brunswick has made advancements in vessel control over the last several years through assisted docking, joystick piloting, Skyhook and more, and I believe autonomous and driver assistance features are the next steps in enabling an easier boating experience,” Arbuckle said. “I look forward to working with all the Brunswick divisions on enhancing marine autonomy.”
