Liquid Robotics has entered into a business and technology partnership with autonomous maritime systems integrator Maritime Robotics to target the Nordic market.
The arrangement will see Maritime Robotics join Liquid Robotics’ Open Oceans Partner Program.
By joining the programme, Maritime Robotics will serve as an authorised partner to sell Liquid Robotics’ Wave Glider and associated mission and integration services to customers throughout the Nordic countries of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland.
This partnership is expected to target current applications including maritime security, fish tracking and monitoring, meteorology and oceanography; and emerging commercial applications of wind farming, aquaculture and commercial flight tracking.
Flightradar24 is one of the first customers of this partnership. It is currently conducting sea trials to test ocean-based ADS-B reception with Wave Glider, with the expectation that Wave Glider has the potential to fill the current air traffic communications tracking gaps that exist over remote ocean expanses.
