Speaking Engagements



The Critical Link – Coordinating Undersea Activity & Gathering Subsea Sensor Data with Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USVs)
June 14, 2017
Makuhari Messe, Tokyo, Japan

11:30 am – 1:00 pm: Deploying underwater assets and sensors is expensive. Getting data from these subsea assets often uses precious power and requires ships or buoys which limits deployment options, mission flexibility, and increases costs. Autonomous, unmanned systems with the ability to operate over long durations can open doors to both new applications and new and expanded real-time data sets.





How Unmanned Surface Vehicles Can Shine a Light on Dark Targets & Cue Assets for Inspection and Interdiction
June 14, 2017
Makuhari Messe, Tokyo, Japan

11:30 am – 1:00 pm: Even in a world of increasing satellite coverage, 24/7 maritime monitoring is difficult and costly with traditional assets. Long duration, unmanned surface vehicles can form virtual walls or trip wire formations that employ passive acoustic sensors to detect dark target. Alerts and acoustic data can provide actionable intelligence allowing organization to cue UAVs and other assets for either inspection, tracking or interdiction.





Putting Teeth into Marine Protected Area (MPA) Monitoring and Serving the Needs of Science
June 13, 2017
Makuhari Messe, Tokyo, Japan

The recent expansion of marine protected areas poses challenges for law enforcement, civil maritime organizations and navies, as monitoring of remote areas is both infrequent and expensive. Satellite applications have begun to provide lower cost approaches including AIS-based monitoring. Yet, without proof of violations (pictures), prosecution of IUU fishing is difficult. Long duration, unmanned surface vehicles can be combined with other systems such as satellite terrestrial data feeds and UAVs to provide historical behavior and traffic patterns as well as in situ, real time monitoring of vessel activity.





Unmanned Maritime Systems Technology
May 24 - 25, 2017
Copthorne Tara Hotel, London, UK

11:30am: Liquid Robotics Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Business Development Daniel J. Middleton will present, “The Digital Ocean: the Future of Maritime Surveillance.” Daniel will discuss how over the past decade, unmanned systems have transitioned from novel technologies to workhorse systems for maritime surveillance. The challenge, today and over the next decade, is to create a seafloor to space network for real-time monitoring and communication of threats. To connect ocean sensors, devices, manned and unmanned vehicles together to form a data and communications network for real-time maritime intelligence. This is Liquid Robotics’ vision to help create the Digital Ocean: a critical enabler to the future of Maritime Surveillance and superiority.





From Big Waves to Cold Water – Unique Mission Requirements and Results from an Unmanned Surface Vehicle
May 8, 2017
Dallas Convention Center, Room: C142

3:30pm – 4:00pm: Taking ocean measurements in 6M waves is best suited to an unmanned vehicle. With over 8 years of platform operations, Liquid Robotics and its partners continue to discover the value of collaboration with both customers and scientific organizations. In this presentation, we will discuss the range of platform and sensor requirements for the Wave Glider unmanned surface vehicles to operate in a range of locations and conditions from Unmanned Warrior in Scotland to missions in extreme latitudes.
