Top 20 Naval Tech Consulting/Services Companies – 2020

At a time of tremendous innovations across a variety of industries, the navy is also taking huge strides into including modern technologies to boost its operational capabilities. The recent developments in automation, artificial intelligence, deep learning, robotics, industrial internet of things (IIoT), and other systems have brought several innovations to the fore in the naval tech space.

With technology becoming more intelligent every passing day, designing an efficient naval vessel remains one of the most puzzling tasks for the navy. However, gradual advancement in the computer-aided design (CAD) tools are making it possible to design, test, and implement 3D modeling to build a virtual vessel before the actual cut of steel. Besides, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) are the two coming of age technologies that shipbuilders are leveraging for the pre-construction operations. Both these technologies enable them to perform a layer by layer in-depth analysis of ship design and allow them a virtual walkthrough of the vessel at the design level.

Once offshore, the navy requires efficient vessels with impeccable safety and operational capabilities in all seasons and weather conditions. They need a lean propulsion system with reliable propellers and power systems that enables the ship to operate safely around the globe. For improving operational capabilities on the deck, AI and IIoT technologies are helping to gather valuable intelligence into the maritime conditions and help the ship navigate with zero to minimum human interaction. Moreover, considering the sensitive information that these naval ships carry, the chance of a cybersecurity threat cannot be brushed off. Cyber protection systems on the vessel can be a boon for the navy as it has the potential to make the vessel’s shipboard, mechanical and electrical control systems resilient to cyber-attacks.

Many naval tech solutions and services providers are coming up with cutting-edge solutions to help the naval from the design to a safe and efficient operation of vessels. Acknowledging the rapid development in the naval tech space, CIOReview has compiled a list of 20 most promising naval tech consulting/services companies to guide the navy harness the power of modern technology and ride the latest innovation bandwagon to strengthen their vessels. With innovative and path-breaking technological capabilities up their sleeves, these companies are continually proving their mettle in the field of naval tech. We present to you CIOReview’s “20 Most Promising Naval Tech Consulting/Services Companies - 2020.”
