Overview Marauder Robotics strives to bring the ocean to the office, becoming akin to the "John Deere of the Sea". As John Deere is known for providing equipment, tools, logistic services and technology solutions to farmers, Marauder Robotics will do the same for aquaculture operators, marine managers, fishermen, vessel maintenance workers, and conservationists by placing near real-time data in the hands of these marine stewards and to remotely take action where applicable. In 10 years, Marauder Robotics will be deploying cloud connected marine hardware and services in more than 1500 commercial locations (10,000+ acres) on four continents, allowing access to the ocean from the office. Marauder Robotics is building a robust and rugged autonomous underwater vehicle platform and multipurpose data collection hub system. The Marauder system is a marine management tool that leverages computer vision, machine learning, and robotics to automate manual tasks traditionally done by divers. Over the next 12 months, Marauder Robotics will build and deploy interactive data collection modules that will be evaluated and used by marine managers to better understand and respond to ecosystem changes in real-time. During this same period, Marauder Robotics will also build and test hardware to assist and amplify work done by human divers to address specific urchin imbalances.
