Richmond, Vermont USA– Greensea Systems, Inc., an industry-leading marine robotics company headquartered in Richmond, Vermont, is pleased to announce that it is expanding its international presence to meet increasing customer demand for its trusted open architecture navigation, control, autonomy, and human-machine interface technology. 

Wight Ocean, Ltd. will now represent Greensea products to a growing number of customers across Europe. This will include the Greensea INSpect GS inertial navigation system and the proven EOD Workspace software tool. “We are excited to collaborate with Greensea Systems, providing our customers with a robust technology framework and the building blocks that enable rapid development of integrated robotics solutions, helping operators accomplish their missions more efficiently and safely,” said Graham Lester of Wight Ocean.  

Wight Ocean is also keen to demonstrate the benefits of Greensea’s latest innovation, a hull crawler designed to perform Underwater ship Inspections in Lieu of Dry-Docking (UWILD) and naval vessel survey & inspection operations.
