Mark Garnier MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, has opened a Mission Control Center developed by ASV Global, an autonomous vessel technology developer, at its headquarters in Portchester, UK. 

This new center will be the hub for ASV Global’s ongoing development of its ASView autonomous vessel control system. Not only will the center be capable of operating and monitoring the company’s fleet of autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs) all over the world using satellite communication links but will also be used for operator training and simulation exercises. 

The center has been partly funded under Innovate UK funding awarded to the company in 2015 under a project called ‘Unmanned Safe Maritime Operations Over The Horizon’ which tasked ASV Global’s team of autonomous system engineers to research and develop both the technology and the regulatory requirements of operating autonomous vessels over the horizon. 

“As a result of this Innovate UK project and our portfolio of complimentary research and development programs, I am proud to say that we are now ready to start real world testing of our autonomous over the horizon control system,” said Richard Daltry, technical director, ASV Global. “This new Mission Control Center will be instrumental in our continuing developments and will demonstrate our ability to achieve advanced, safe, autonomous operations at sea."
