ARKEOCEAN, CMMI, LANEGO and SignalGeneriX to co-develop EONIOS, a fully Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) swarm system with AUV docking stations


( Arkeocean, the Cyprus Marine and Maritime Institute (CMMI), Lanego and SignalGeneriX Ltd signed a research and development agreement to co-develop a solution called ‘EONIOS’, a micro-AUV swarm system with AUV docking stations integrated in nature-based artificial reefs. The EONIOS system will explore and protect designated underwater areas including marine ecosystems and biodiversity.

The agreement was signed at Eurosatory, the global defence exhibition in Paris, during a ceremony at the Cyprus Pavilion, in the presence of government officials representing both France and Cyprus. This agreement follows the recent signature of a two-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the same parties to establish cooperation in marine and maritime research and innovation and to cultivate proficiency and knowledge in the marine and maritime sectors.

The signature of ‘EONIOS’ showcases the commitment of Arkeocean, CMMI, Lanego and SignalGeneriX to contribute to the advancement of the marine and maritime industry in the Mediterranean and beyond, while strengthening the bilateral relations between France and Cyprus in areas of paramount importance such as research and innovation in marine and maritime science and technology.

Since 2009, ARKEOCEAN has been imagining and delivering disruptive solutions for underwater exploration. ARKEOCEAN specializes in affordable swarm systems made of micro-Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) used for observation missions in the fields of energy, defense and the environment. In 2024, Arkeocean was awarded a France 2030 contract, in 2023 it received the Perseus Label awarded by the French Navy (EMM) and the French DGA and the Euronaval 2022 and i-Naval 2022 innovation prizes awarded by the French Defense Innovation Agency (AID) and the Southern French Region.
