We provide hi-tech, robust Uncrewed Surface Vessel (USV) solutions to the maritime and research industries and aim to be the UK’s leading USV designer and developer, focused on over-the-horizon deployment of systems and sensors for a number of use cases. These include maritime logistics, environmental management and the security and monitoring of offshore assets, as well as marine inspection and efficient survey of the ocean floor.
Our team is sharply focused on driving down the cost of geo-data collection and reducing the sector’s carbon emissions. Among many notable achievements, SEA-KIT was part of the winning team of the Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE in 2019 and in 2020 completed a 22-day Atlantic mission with its USV ‘Maxlimer’. The company also played an important role in the 2022 Tonga Eruption Seabed Mapping Project, using USV 'Maxlimer' to survey inside the caldera of a recently-erupted subsea volcano.
