The Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) has hosted conferences focused on marine autonomy for more than a decade, next year the reach will be extended to the SUT-US Branch. The goal of the conference is to bring together energy industry executives and engineers, with marine technologists, government stakeholders, and research scientists, to provide a 1-day update on the history, status, uses and future of autonomous systems, sensors and AI, in the offshore environment. The conference program will close with a panel discussion focused on future advances that are likely to be of value to the offshore energy industry.
Together with the conference, there will be a small exhibition space to allow organizations active in this sphere to further expand on the conference program, and provide opportunities for attendees to gain a greater understanding of how autonomous systems can be used in specific applications.
SUT recognizes the importance of developing talent to support the offshore industry and over the past 15 years has supported education and mentoring through scholarships and Student Chapters. During the conference the Student Chapters will participate in a Poster competition.
MAS will be held as a virtual conference and registration is now open. Each registration includes 3 connection points, which can be used for your employees and/or colleagues.
