Sviluppi delle reti wireless sottomarine, Big Data e tecnologie innovative della Internet of Things applicate al mondo subacqueo.
W•SENSE is a fast scaling up high tech SME, founded as a spin-off of Sapienza University of Rome, with a strong and experienced R&D team specialized in monitoring and communication systems with pioneering patented solutions in the Internet of Underwater Things (IoUT).
W•SENSE IoUT solutions are on the market since 2017. The company has fast grown to 20+ employees and offices in three countries (Italy, Norway, UK). The company has multi-annual contracts with key stakeholders in different Blue Economy sectors (Aquaculture, Defence, Energy, Environment).
Internationally recognized for its R&D excellence, W•SENSE is focused on designing and developing innovative, robust, reliable, performing and secure communication and monitoring systems.
Scientific collaboration with top international R&D centers, including MIT, UCLA, ETHZ and others, and a multidisciplinary involvement with the University
An innovative crew of passionate and enthusiastic visionaries, always on the cutting edge, with an extensive expertise and background in successfully managing complex technological projects
Editor of networked scenarios, NATO NIAG 190 on JANUS evolution. Coordination of EC EASME ArcheoSub project. Support for EC FP7 GENESI and SUNRISE projects
Underwater technologies developed by W•SENSE are filed under the PCT for international patents
The reference industry still has a few critical hitches that the major players need to resolve, especially in the field of underwater communication and monitoring systems:
In a simplified scheme, submarine communication and monitoring systems are essentially composed of the following technological components, where the networking software area is overseen by W•SENSE:
WSENSE platform can safely and efficiently interconnect any component of any underwater network, of any nature and in any environmental condition
Modems convey the collected optical or sound signals, then route them to the network
Sensors measure parameters of the underwater environment, then send them to optical or acoustic modems
Underwater vehicles explore the environment, collecting data and information with the sensors they host
W•SENSE solutions guarantee a complete cableless networking interoperability among various vendors of underwater sensors and autonomous vehicles (UAV, ASV, AUV), ensuring real-time monitoring and an extensive surveillance of underwater environments, waterways and marine seabeds.
W•SENSE helps small and big companies bridge technology gaps in the monitoring & control of marine environments involving such areas as:
Growth in the Blue Economy will require innovative technologies able to provide real time information to companies involved in this cultural revolution. WSENSE solutions can help decision makers reduce investment risks by combining inhouse solutions with new technologies.
W•SENSE has paved the way for a new generation of underwater systems, enabling integration and effective cooperation among multi-vendor assets. Its award winning patented Internet of Underwater Things solutions have demonstrated excellent performance across marine environments and are contributing to an emerging standardization.
WSENSE solutions support Blue Growth’s long term strategy in the marine and maritime sectors as a whole and sustain companies to be more “eco-innovative” with a marked reduction in cost and a significant increase in value, in terms of market share and brand reputation.
Knowledge is what is needed to foster business innovation and to inform decision makers. Customizable stats reports let you analyze – in real time – information obtained at a particular depth, promptly identifying the environments (e.g. whether critical or optimization areas) of any application field. Operating independently of large vessels and in all kinds of environmental conditions not only makes it possible to reach places that before were deemed technically out of reach, but with an assurance of maximum reliability and savings.
W•SENSE cableless patented technologies are at the forefront of underwater networking, outclassing competitors at over a dozen at sea campaigns with a demonstration of their performance and reliability.
Selected as core communications and networking component by pioneering EC and NSF projects in the field of Internet of Underwater Things, W•SENSE has been part of the first NATO standardization efforts in underwater communications, serving as NIAG 190 editor for networked scenarios.
Holistic support to interoperability by JANUS and multi-modem support, and an architecture designed to run on a large number of field-used embedded platforms, supporting integration of heterogeneous, multivendor commercial acoustic modems, sensors, AUV/ASVs.
Our underwater secure communication frameworks support encryption, authentication, integrity, key management through lightweight schemes designed to minimize resource consumption.
W•SENSE smart networking layer brings full reliability to underwater networks by dynamically changing paths, protocols and settings to best fit current environmental and operational conditions.
W•SENSE application and networking intelligence, adaptability to context and operational conditions, support to multimodal communications technologies, results in greater bandwidth and energy efficiency, extending capabilities of current systems.
