This Week’s Highlight: Expressions of Interest sought for supply of ASVs

The Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) is Australia’s tropical marine research agency that helps governments, industry and the wider community to make informed decisions about the management of Australia’s marine estate. As capability in autonomous marine vessels increases and gains greater applications world wide, Australian government agencies also look to autonomy as a possible solution for a persistent presence in the ocean that can provide a reliable stream of information.

This week we look at an Invitation to Register Interest (IRI) issued by AIMS, proposing to procure the development and subsequent manufacture of a small number of Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASVs). The general scope of works is to develop and manufacture a small number of ASVs. Each ASV must address a set of Essential use cases as a minimum as follows:

  • Shallow Reef Surveys
  • Reef Perimeter Manta-Tow Reef Surveys
  • Deep Reef Towed Platform Surveys
  • AUV Tracker
  • In addition, AIMS has determined a set of desirable use cases that include: Extended Station Keeping and Water Sampling, and Underway Water Sampling.

    Its important to note that this IRI is not a request for tender, but only a preliminary information seeking exercise to gauge market interest and capability to meet the requirement. However, should AIMS chose to progress to a Request For Tender, it will only invite those shortlisted from the IRI. The intention is to shortlist a maximum of 5 applicants.

    The Closing date for IRI submissions is 28 Oct 2021. It is anticipated that should the procurement progress, a Request for Tender would be released around 30 Jan 2022.
