Maritime Autonomous Systems

Maritime autonomous systems

This market area is the focus for the maritime autonomy interests of members of the Society of Maritime Industries (SMI).  This expanding market impinges on a wide range of maritime applications such as marine scientific and survey, offshore resource exploitation, maritime transport and defence and maritime security operations.

By way of example, but not exclusively, MAS impacts on oceanography, offshore oil/gas, offshore renewable energy, deep-sea mining and underwater asset management. Members with an interest in this area include manufacturers, academia, researchers, survey companies and system suppliers, and all benefit from the connections and activities provided through membership.

Activities include: 

  • Facilitating outward and inward trade missions to create business opportunities through greater international co-operation
  • Arranging information briefings on key developments in the market
  • Organising networking opportunities with those who have a common interest in maritime autonomous systems
  • A regular programme of meetings on various aspects of MAS developments and operations with senior high calibre speakers. Some of these meetings are restricted to members only
  • Assistance with sourcing relevant contacts within the industry

The MAS Council sets the policy and guides the activities for this market area, utilising the extensive expertise of its council members. A list of council members can be found here 

Maritime Autonomous Systems Survey 2016

SMI took the decision to create a new interest group to focus on the business of MAS in 2016 and form a MAS Council of member experts to guide future policy. One of the Council’s first actions was to commission a base line survey of UK companies in the MAS sector to provide an insight into current business activity. The survey can be viewed here.
