Abyss Solutions was founded by four scientists and engineers from The University of Sydney in 2014, looking to vastly improve maintenance and equipment observation methods through advanced yet practical technology.
Prior to starting the company, the founders Nasir, Masood, Abraham and Hina were deeply involved in various fields of research including marine robotics, civil and geotechnical engineering, optical sensing, data analysis and economics. With a combined experience spanning diverse fields and working all around the world with leaders in industry and research, they developed a passion for solving real-world issues using groundbreaking technology.
The founders of Abyss strongly believe that the last exploration frontier, the oceans, are a gold mine of challenges that their combined skills, expertise and vision can solve. Before going to the depths of the Mariana trench, Abyss tackled issues closer to home in the form of urban water infrastructure inspection and maintenance. Their revolutionary approach is critical to the sustainability and safety of all cities and towns.
Abyss Solutions has since adapted its technology to inspect underwater assets such as dams, reservoirs, canals, bridges, ship hull inspections and oil and gas platforms which were previously deemed as highly difficult.
Abyss Solutions vision is to build the intelligence that will drive all unmanned robots of the future.
This intelligence will comprise of perception, planning and intervention capabilities rendering these systems completely autonomous. Tomorrow’s computers will be independent systems, they will have their own sensors and thinking, and just like today’s computers say intel inside, they will say Abyss inside!
In everything that we do and say: Transparency, Innovation, Integrity, Commitment, Reliability
