Riptide Autonomous solutions made their first 3 production micro-UUVs delivery to SPAWAR System Center earlier this year and recently delivered 6 more to the US Navy this month.  More information on the company can be found on their web site at: https://riptideas.com/
Alex Lorman described Sea Machines Robotics as a forward-looking autonomous technology company which develops control systems and unmanned surface vehicles that increase offshore operational efficiency, quality and safety.  Sea Machines can be applied across most maritime industries.
