Sea Machines Robotics (SMR) is an industry leader and a fast-growing, venture-funded, start-up company specializing in autonomous technologies for maritime markets. SMR applies its practical artificial intelligence (AI) to the massive global ocean transportation market.

Since 2018, SMR’s solutions have provided ships and workboats with the intelligence they need to work autonomously and remotely. SMR has also given vessel operators the modern tools they need to optimize their fleets with new capabilities, performance, and safety. As a result, SMR has attracted the industry’s attention and established valuable partnerships with leading players. Now, SMR is poised to become the world’s most significant marine technology company in the 21st century.

Headquartered in Boston, with offices in Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands, the company is crewed by experienced mariners, engineers, coders, and autonomy scientists, all working in a dynamic and collaborative culture based on execution.
