Recently, Greenroom Robotics had the privilege of partnering with AMC Search, a commercial division of the Australian Maritime College. This collaboration centered around the development of 'Whiskers', an extensible Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) Payload and Control Module aimed at fostering maritime innovation.

Central to this alliance was the mutual ambition to push maritime autonomy to new heights. While AMC Search secured a considerable $2.07 million investment from the Defence Innovation Hub to develop advanced sensor technologies for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), Greenroom Robotics was selected to conduct the software development for the system. Our mission was to ensure the flawless integration and operation of various components, reflecting our dedication to delivering top-tier software solutions for intricate maritime challenges.

A reflection of this successful partnership was voiced by AMC Search:

"At AMC Search, we had the privilege of collaborating with Greenroom Robotics to develop Whiskers, our extensible AUV Payload and Control Module. Our focus was on hardware development, operations and testing, while Greenroom Robotics specialized in software development for the system. Their expertise and dedication were instrumental in bringing our project to fruition. Greenroom Robotics provided exceptional remote technical support through the development of the technology, as well as exceptional remote support whilst we carried out on-water testing. Their responsive and professional approach made all the difference, ensuring that our Whiskers module operated seamlessly. We look forward to collaborating with Greenroom Robotics in the future to advance maritime autonomy solutions."

Our engagement with AMC Search highlighted the importance of adaptability and quick response, particularly when offering remote technical assistance. The on-water testing phase stood as a testament to our software's resilience under real-world conditions, delivering faultless performance, thanks to our team's refined expertise.

This collaboration signifies a pivotal moment in our journey towards a promising horizon and developing a sovereign capability in maritime autonomy. The insights gained have deepened our knowledge pool and have strengthened our collaborative bond with AMC Search, a partnership we are looking to grow into the future.

With a clear vision for the future, Greenroom Robotics is committed to advancing maritime technology. The success of this venture with AMC Search illustrates the potential outcomes when industry leaders collaborate. As we continue to build such vital partnerships in the realm of advancing maritime autonomy, we get closer to achieving a future with safer and cleaner oceans.
