This week marked the website launch of one of our newest clients – the exciting EU-funded Horizon 2020 DexROV project. The project brings together seven different international organisations to challenge the possibilities of undersea operations, using space-based technology.
As a partner, our role is to support the DexROV public communication activities, including the recently launched website and social media channels. We became communications partner in January 2015 and visited Marseilles, France for the kick-off meeting in March 2015. As well as digital communication tools, we have designed brochure and poster material illustrating the underwater project. The website launched on 10 June 2015 and provides detailed information on DexROV’s purpose, goals and news.
As part of the long-term Blue Growth strategy to support sustainable growth in the European marine and maritime sectors, DexROV has high aspirations. The project will explore the possibility of operating ROVs from shore, improving underwater robotic dexterity through haptic technology and developing robotic autonomy to compensate for latencies in satellite communications. These developments should improve safe and autonomous access to some of Earth’s most difficult environments.
We are looking forward to seeing what this partnership will bring and are excited to be producing content that will allow its message to be shared with the world.
