The Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) has hosted conferences focused on marine autonomy for more than a decade, this year the reach has been extended to the SUT-US Branch. The goal of the conference is to bring together energy industry executive and engineers together with government, and research scientists a provide a 1-day update on the history, status, uses and future of autonomous systems, sensors and AI in the offshore marine environment. The conference program will close with a panel discussion regarding 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 session competition.
|Plenary Session “2010-2019” A look back on the last decade of the development of Marine Autonomous Systems and associated technologies, lessons learned and the current state of the art.|
|Platforms Session “The state of the truck” Presentations on the current status of vehicle and subsystem technologies and innovations to increase the endurance and capacity of systems.|
|Sensors and robotics Session “Seeing, sampling and shaping” Papers presenting new sensing technologies and also robotics that allow the uses of autonomous systems to be extended beyond current uses.|
|Software and Digitalization Session “Digitally extending the reach” AI, machine learning and communication technology developments are critical to extending the capabilities of autonomous systems.|
|Uses Session “Realizing the opportunities” Examples of case histories and applications in IRM, Site Investigation, resident subsea systems and metocean survey.|
|Panel “2020-2029” Innovation and disruption, what to expect in the next decade.|
Call for Abstracts
Applications for abstracts are open under any of the 4 sessions mentioned above. Abstracts should be circa 300 words, and the deadline for submission is (TBC) and the final selection will be completed by (TBC). Presentations should be 15 minutes long and submitted by (TBC). People wishing to submit abstracts can do so at the following online abstract submission form.
SUT-US will continue to carefully monitor the situation regarding the pandemic and its potential impact on the conference. In addition, we will plan for and take precautionary measures to protect public health should the Conference be an in-person event.
As there is much uncertainty at this time, we are planning on the basis of virtual event, with the option of having an in-person/virtual event, should the circumstance make it feasible in March 2021.
