UNH and Exail launch new Maritime Autonomy Innovation Hub
New England Council Member, University of New Hampshire, recently announced the opening of a new maritime autonomy innovation hub.
In collaboration with nautical technology firm, Exail, UNH will utilize the new center as an operating base for marine autonomous vessels. The hub will produce pioneering uncrewed surface vessels, house a center for international remote autonomous operations, and train future generations on the use of remote autonomous vehicles. As a result, this effort will expand access to public and private customers and offer innovative solutions to help support the blue economy.
“This exciting collaboration will not only be good for Exail and UNH students and researchers but also good for New Hampshire and the nation,” said Larry Mayer, director of UNH’s Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping. “We anticipate that it is just the start of bringing many of our other industrial partners and government colleagues to the state as we create a local engine for the new blue economy.”
The New England Council congratulates the University of New Hampshire for this development.
