Who we are​

Skarv Technologies is founded by four PhDs from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and the Applied Underwater Robotics Laboratory. Skarv delivers software- and hardware solutions for autonomous robotic systems operating in the marine environment, specializing in applications that require a high degree of self dependence and robustness. We believe that ocean exploration deserves capable and reliable autonomous software to acquire data effectively, safely, and with unprecedented accuracy.
