Unit 9 Armstrong Mall, Southwood Business Park, Farnborough, Hampshire GU14 0NR, United Kingdom
The UUV Engineering Project Lead will lead the development of Blue Ocean Seismic Services (‘BOSS’) revolutionary underwater autonomous vehicles, driving a multidisciplinary technology team. The role is primarily focused on the design of the UUVs, prototype manufacturing, interfacing with other BOSS teams and reporting to line managers and stakeholders. This role will suit someone with an Inquisitive mind – keen to explore novel approaches to problems (ie not constrained by current practices or approaches)
BOSS is an established and innovative tech company with strong shareholders including BP. Our vision is to disrupt the Marine Seismic industry through the development of a large-scale autonomous ocean bottom seismic data acquisition system, resulting in a step change reduction in the cost, time and HSSE risks required to acquire high quality OBS data. We help our clients to reduce their carbon emissions and their carbon footprint.
BOSS is developing a revolutionary, integrated seismic acquisition system based around long endurance, self-repositioning robotic ocean bottom nodes.
These nodes are capable of multiple autonomous re-positions to allow rolling of the receiver array without having to recover and redeploy nodes. This, in combination with automated handling systems, rapid deployment/recovery and intelligent system control, allows for optimisation of seismic acquisition survey operations to minimise duration and cost, and removes the requirement for ROV support.
