Use SCOOT’s fleet of autonomous vessels!

Are you a researcher, entrepreneur, innovator or belong to small commercial enterprise? SCOOT wants to collaborate with you!

During the first half of 2019 we will concentrate our efforts on autonomous vessels for ocean measurements. These are the tools of the future in science, monitoring, inspection, surveillance. Opportunities and challenges include sensor integration, communication,piloting and navigation, data processing and management…

During the winter and spring we arrange a series of seminars and hands-on workshops dealing with the different types in the SCOOT fleet of autonomous vessels. This culminates in a four days event in June, when we gather at the Bornö station in Gullmarn. At Bornö our entire fleet of autonomous vessels will be available, together with support vessels, technicians and experts. Do you want to take part in this? Contact us and follow our news!

Exciting times for ocean observers

We have seen it so many times, technology is driving science. Automation and robotics is today transforming how observations are made in the ocean. We can now go to places that are out of reach for humans. We can now make sustained monitoring at temporal and spatial scales that used to be unachievable. Even though the ocean still remains as unexplored as the moon, our knowledge and understanding of the marine domain is now expanding at an unprecedented pace. SCOOT – Swedish Centre for Ocean Observation Technology will amplify this development in Sweden by enabling ocean research and innovation.
