Aquabotix Joins the SENEDIA Alliance
Underwater vehicle manufacturer UUV Aquabotix Ltd announced it has joined an alliance that seeks to identify, champion and coordinate issues that contribute to the national security of the U.S., with a particular focus on thought leadership and technical innovation in undersea technologies.
The Southeastern New England Defense Industry Alliance (SENEDIA) supports open dialogue and increased engagement between the U.S. industrial base and Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security, and participation in SENEDIA supports Aquabotix’s goal of continuing to strengthen its ties to these customer groups, the company said.
