Young AFCEANs Tour
Sea Machines Robotics
Alex Lorman, chief of technology at
Sea Machines Robotics, hosted a group
of the chapter’s Young AFCEANs at the
company’s Boston Harbor Shipyard facil-
ity in May. Sea Machines employs forward-
looking technology to develop autono-
mous control systems and surface vehi-
cles to safely replace human crews with
unmanned systems to accomplish certain
marine tasks. The Young AFCEANs saw
demonstrations of Sea Machines’ self-pilot-
ing systems, which are designed to perform
repetitive and quantifiable tasks more reli-
ably than manned systems and to increase
offshore operational efficiency, quality and
safety across most maritime industries.
