The Creation of AMSSI - Agora for Maritime and Submarine Sustainable Innovations

Following several months of fruitful discussions and dialogue, several French players have announced the creation of the AMSSI (Agora for Maritime & Submarine Sustainable Innovations):

  • LogosAlcatel Submarine Networks (ASN) - world leader in the procurement of submarine telecommunication cable systems  
  • iXblue - global high-tech company recognized worldwide for its advanced technologies in the fields of maritime autonomy, inertial navigation, subsea positioning and subsea imagery  
  • SeaOwl - international maritime services operator, pioneer in the implementation of drone-based maritime services

These 3 companies are today the core of AMSSI; new French and European members will shortly join them to accelerate the emergence of new innovative projects.

This partnership aims to be a French innovation cluster where members share a desire to combine their know-how and technologies with the objective of bringing to life concrete and innovative industrial projects in the maritime and underwater fields, as well as in the fight against climate change. AMSSI will promote R&D, innovation and French know-how.

AMSSI has a proactive approach towards the concretization and implementation of the various technologies developed through its members' R&D programs, leading to the industrial deployment of its projects.

An ecosystem and concrete projects

By combining the expertise of its members, AMSSI will continue to develop an ecosystem capable of meeting major technological challenges and building an effective and relevant community for maritime technologies and services.  

Among the developments involving the most advanced technologies of its partners, member companies are already working on an innovative project: the development of a remotely operated hydrographic surface vessel, i.e., a drone capable of carrying out long-distance survey missions.  

Other projects related to climate change and marine digitalization are also being studied.
