The next generation of OPT’s Maritime Domain Awareness System (M-DAS) will use the OPENSEA platform
Richmond, Vermont USA– Greensea Systems, creator of OPENSEA®, the universal open architecture software platform for the marine industry, recently contracted with Ocean Power Technologies (OPT) to provide development and engineering services. During the three-year contract, Greensea will support OPT to develop and launch the next generation of their PowerBuoy®-based Maritime Domain Awareness Solution (MDAS) on the OPENSEA platform and will work closely with OPT’s other software partner, Fathom5.
“This is an exciting project to be involved in and it speaks to the versatility of open architecture and OPENSEA,” says Ben Kinnaman, Greensea CEO. “It also takes into consideration what working with Greensea is all about, an open business relationship where we work collaboratively with all partners to develop their differentiating technologies based on the proven and stable technologies of OPENSEA. This is the only way to eliminate the barriers that often prevent rapid technology advancement.”
James Truman, VP of Engineering for Greensea, says “We’ll be standing up an engineering payload unit at our Plymouth, Massachusetts facility which will provide a continuous ‘live’ test and eval system for us and Fathom5. Greensea’s over-the-horizon command and control suite, SafeC2™, will be playing an important role in the OPT project.”
“There is growing international focus on Maritime Domain Awareness to prevent and prosecute activities from some of the most remote areas of the seas,” says Philipp Stratmann, OPT President and CEO. “Greensea brings decades of experience in developing agile and adaptable software solutions that can help our products withstand the harshest ocean environments. Along with Fathom5, Greensea will allow us to seamlessly integrate video and radar from a PowerBuoy®-based Maritime Domain Awareness Solution with available satellite, weather, bathymetric, and other data feeds to form a customizable and detailed surface and subsea picture of a monitored area as we develop a best-in-class autonomous threat detection solution.”
Fathom5 CEO Zac Staples remarks, “We are excited to be a part of the team put together by OPT and we are looking forward to working with Greensea to deliver this important advance in maritime domain awareness.”
