Have you seen our new videos?

Take a look at our Youtube channel, and see a short videos about the UAV-X8, Neptus - command and control software and also see how our vehicles behave in multi-vehicles operations, with the Mariner-01 (our quadcopter) providing a privileged view of the LAUVs out on the water.

The Anthropocene Institute aims to provide a helpful resource for fishermen and mariners to use on the water and to enhance situational awareness of regulations and conservation measures for long-term marine management.
Partnering with the NOAA Marine Protected Area Center and Navionics they hope to provide comprehensive and accessible MPA data for marine resource managers and the general public.
