    H2OMNI-X: Revolutionary Multipurpose Unmanned Surface Vehicle
    Marin Bek, CEO, H20 Robotics

    H2O Robotics is a spin-off company which is a result of more than 20 years of experience in research and development of underwater systems and technologies at the University of Zagreb, Croatia. For the first time at Oceanology International, H2O Robotics is proud to present a new kind of autonomous surface marine vehicle – H2Omni-X.

    H2Omni-X is a versatile autonomous surface vehicle capable of carrying and operating different payloads for both above-water and underwater applications. What makes H2Omni-X unique is that it is one-man portable (simple logistics and deployment), highly maneuverable (omnidirectional movement) and modular. It is also fault tolerant, energy efficient and operates on open source software architecture which makes it highly competitive in comparison to similar solutions in the market.

    DexROV / From the Stars to the Seabed
    Dr Jeremi Gancet, Project Manager DexROV, Space Applications Services

    DexROV applies new technologies to allow safer, more cost-effective undersea operations with Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs). DexROV makes it possible to move the control of ROVs from on-location surface vessels to a shore based operations centre. DexROV provides advanced dexterous tools with the capacity to grip and manipulate in ways similar to a human hand for salvage, repair, and surveillance in some of Earth’s most difficult environments. ROV operation is supported using exoskeleton technology. Global operations are made possible using satellite communications to the location of operations compensating for communication latency by applying autonomy.
