Abyssal at the ICARSC

Abyssal we will be presenting a new paper—A Hybrid Framework for Uncertainty-Aware Depth Prediction in the Underwater Environment—at the 20th IEEE International Conference on Autonomous Robot Systems and Competitions, an international scientific meeting in the field of Robotics co-sponsored by the Portuguese Society for Robotics, IEEE and IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS).


The conference will be held on a open streaming platform from 15th to the 17th of April.
To all the registered participants, do not miss it! On April 15, Session 4 at 2:15 p.m. Azores (GMT+0), 3:15 p.m. Mainland Portugal (GMT+1).


Abyssal at the Subsea Tieback

From live contextualized 3D visualization of subsea fields, planning and execution of remote and autonomous operations, to Artificial Intelligence and  Digital Twin capabilities for Life of Field support – Abyssal plays a critical role by enabling new levels of safety and efficiency that are actively reducing Total Expenditure (ToTex) and helping our clients and partners to meet their carbon footprint reduction goals.


We will be at Subsea Tieback with Wood at stand 125, from the 18th to the 20th of February.


Abyssal at the Subsea Expo 2020

Abyssal is at the forefront of fully unmanned operations, in multiple sites, with several vehicles and service providers, offering the confidence required to deploy unmanned, resident or autonomous vehicles in the vicinities of critical infrastructures.
Find us at SubseaExpo in Aberdeen (Booth 1) from the 11-13 Feb, to discover how.


Abyssal’s CTO speaking at the 25th SNAME

Who is Manuel Parente? Well, if you have an interest in Disruptive Technologies in the Offshore Industry, he´s someone you should know.
Manuel is Abyssal´s founder, CTO and inventor, holding several patents on Augmented Reality and Deep Learning for Remotely Operated Vehicles. This amazing technologist is speaking at the 25th SNAME Offshore Symposium, Houston on the 27th February 2020. Join us there!


Abyssal featured in ROV Planet Magazine


Abyssal featured on page 23, on issue 22 of the ROV Planet Magazine leading the way on “THE FUTURE OF REMOTE SUBSEA OPS USING THE DIGITAL TWIN“!


Abyssal has developed a platform, that incorporates a 3D visualisation engine and a survey grade Geographic Information System (GIS) and is able to acquire, process, and integrate data in real-time from multiple sources. Abyssal´s methodology relies on an innovative approach of integrating all relevant data that results from offshore operations, and is time-stamped, and geospatially referenced in a 3D platform.


Special thanks to ROV Planet.

Abyssal Cloud Launch

We are very excited to launch the Abyssal Cloud today!



Abyssal Cloud delivers the tools that streamline Design & Engineering, improve Handover & Operations Planning, and enables the easy creation of digital assets that live throughout the LoF.

It integrates and correlates historical and real-time data from operations and assets, delivering a single evergreen view of any project and facility.


Please check the Abyssal Cloud page for more details.



Abyssal AI, our research department, was at the industry day of VISUM 2019, a summer school which gathers researchers from academia and industry interested in computer vision and machine intelligence.

We shared the results of our research projects—Structure Inspection and Underwater SLAM-NET System—where we are using artificial intelligence to improve the efficiency of subsea operations. Therefore we showed how to:

> Automatically detect structure integrity threats and other entities (i.e. fish) on subsea videos;

> Reconstruct the surrounding 3D environment and estimate the movement of a subsea vehicle using a single video camera.

The discussion opened doors to great feedback and networking with all the participants, making it worth to work on a Saturday! Thank you VISUM for the invitation, we hope to see you next year!
