Revolutionizing Environmental Monitoring: MAI and JAIA Robotics Collaborate to Develop Human-Portable UUV for Advanced Acoustic Measurements in Marine Projects

Marine Acoustics, Inc. (MAI) has entered a collaboration with Jaia Robotics, Inc., a leader in low-cost, micro-sized autonomous marine vehicles, to develop a human portable UUV capable of calibrated passive acoustic measurements throughout the water depth column of common interest for environmental monitoring of marine projects.


The acoustic monitoring vehicles that Jaia Robotics will produce provide a versatile tool for obtaining aquatic acoustic measurements at multiple sample sites over a short period of time. This capability aids in the sustainable development of ocean-based renewable energy and the responsible development and use of the marine environment.
