Marine Testing Services

Our Marine Systems Test Facility is located on Block Island Sound in Wakefield, Rhode Island. It provides, year-round access to littoral testing waters in the Point Judith Harbor of Refuge, Narragansett Bay, Block Island Sound, and beyond. Testing services include assembly, transport, deployment, operation, evaluation, and maintenance of marine systems, including:

  • Unmanned underwater vehicles (3′ to 30′ UUVs)
  • Underwater and ruggedized sensors
  • Underwater moored systems
  • Surface platforms and vessels
  • Custom and complex underwater devices

 

Naval systems testing is supported by our onsite engineers, who are experienced designers and developers of marine systems for the US Navy. Testing is conducted with special-purpose research vessels. All vessels are captained by licensed mariners. Our maritime testing facility includes a design office for engineering services and a 4,000 sqft high-bay warehouse for fabrication, assembly, and secure storage. The facility is on the grounds of Point View Marina, which provides dockage for vessels up to 100 feet in length and hauling for vessels up to 70 tons, with 24 feet of beam.

Overview

We provide a full range of maritime testing services for government and commercial clients at our Rhode Island test facility.
