2019 Sponsors & Exhibitors


Beamagine is a company based in Greater Barcelona that develops solid-state LIDAR sensors with unprecedented performance in terms of image resolution, range and frame rate. Such a singular performance figure fulfills the most demanding maritime applications related to detection of small objects (buoys, rocks, small vessels, etc.) in real-time, a feature mandatory for a safe and reliable autonomous navigation. The solid-sate approach avoids any mechanical moving elements, which guarantees long-term stability, immunity to vibrations and robustness. In addition, our patented approach allows a direct fusion between 3D data and an additional imaging mode (RGB, polarimetric, SWIR, etc.) without parallax error. This feature provide unmatched capabilities for environment perception and navigation. Our devices are ready for produciton and volume scaling.

Buffalo Automation is an AI startup that provides advanced computer systems, which include autonomous navigation, situational awareness, decision support, remote monitoring, data analytics and cloud-based fleet management platforms.

Ship operators have been leveraging these products to increase safety and improve efficiency in their North American lake freighter fleets since 2015.

Dibotics is a Paris-based company offering innovation in real-time LiDAR processing. Founded in 2015 by Raul Bravo and Olivier Garcia, two serial entrepreneurs with extensive experience of 15 years in LiDAR processing for mobile robotics applications, Dibotics has an original approach that differs from the traditional solutions. Its sensor-agnostic 3D SLAM technology (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) and Augmented LiDAR™ created the first solution allowing advanced features like point-wise classification, objects detection & tracking and calibration-less Sensor Fusion to be performed only based on the sensor data itself. All of this performs without requiring any learning (deterministic) and can be embedded in a small and low-power integrated circuit (SLAM on Chip™).

Maritime Robotics AS (MR) is a leading provider of innovative unmanned solutions for maritime operations. MR was established in 2005, and has its headquarters in Trondheim, Norway. With technology developed in close collaboration with civilian, governmental and military partners, MR focuses on delivering high-quality systems that are cost-efficient, reduce personnel risk exposure and are highly deployable. Maritime Robotics develops three types of unmanned systems: unmanned surface vessels, aerial vehicles and moored balloon systems. MR has executed many projects creating specialized solutions and consulting for surveying water bodies, e.g. mapping water reservoirs, finding sunken airplanes, or monitoring seabed nodes for geosurveys.

Neptec Technologies Corp., based in Ottawa, Canada, is the leading manufacturer of long-range Marine LiDAR sensors for autonomous vessels and ship intelligence solutions. Our OPAL™ 3D LiDAR delivers real-time 3D data for improved situational awareness, collision avoidance, and autonomous operations for both maritime and port applications.

Orca AI brings cutting-edge technology into the world of maritime, with the mission of building the brain for autonomous ships.

Starting with aiding ships navigate safer at sea, by providing an intelligent collision avoidance system, designed for crowded waterways and the harshest, lowest visibility, scenarios. By supplementing existing onboard sensors with cameras as well as an AI-powered navigation and vessel tracking system, crews can easily detect ships, providing them with sufficient time to remedy their course and avoid a collision. The system learns the maritime environment and will take control over parts of the voyage gradually in the future.

Ouster is a leading provider of LIDAR and related robotics technology dedicated to bringing 3D sensing to the masses. We sell the OS-1 and OS-2 LIDAR sensors which are the most capable, powerful, and affordable sensors on the market. We focus on practical, scalable engineering, and pride ourselves on shipping products, not promises.
