Sea Marine’s SM300 is targeted at workboats.

Sea Machines Robotics wrapped up sea trials of its intelligent command and control systems for offshore commercial, scientific and government applications.

The Boston-based company’s new SM300 and SM200 are designed for computer-guided vessel operations. Already in use in North American and Europe, the products are targeted at commercial operations.

The SM300 is an industrial-grade vessel intelligence system providing autonomous command and control, plus direct remote-control operation via a wireless belt pack. The SM200 provides fully integrated, line-of-sight and remote-vessel control for collaborative vessel operations.

“This is the advanced technology that mariners have long been awaiting,” said Michael G. Johnson, Sea Machines CEO, in a statement. “Our products allow operators and crew to focus on higher-value tasks while at sea, empowering a commercial vessel to do more with predictable results and lower operational costs.”

The systems can be installed in existing vessels, as well as new builds.
