Our innovations are discovered through continual investment in research and development (R&D) in our dedicated Innovation House. The team includes more than 75 engineers from various disciplines including underwater robotics, electronics, control, hydrodynamics, software and mechanical design. We are committed to investing heavily in R&D and have spent $6.5million on innovation since our inception with 30 per cent of staff being dedicated to the cause. This is clearly a significant investment, but the importance of R&D cannot be over emphasised as every aspect of exploration and production is impacted by it. We know creating and delivering unique products and services solves our client’s challenges and gives us a competitive advantage with opportunity to grow.
An example of a solution borne out of our Innovation House is the Photo Realistic 3D Cloud (PRC) which is now transforming inspection campaigns worldwide.
