AHTI: testing maritime technologies in a real-life environment

Meet AHTI: living laboratory

Who is AHTI?

AHTI is a test centre, available to us and our partners, to test new maritime technologies without the usual red tape, costs and timing challenges. He allows us to fail fast and supports our entire innovation strategy.

AHTI has a history. With a past as a German Government fishery patroller, he demonstrates what’s possible now, with existing fleets, and helps us bring an autonomous, connected, situationally aware and data-enabled future even closer.

We can’t wait to invite you onboard.
