Management Commentary –
"We had another quarter of progress executing our strategy to become the global leader in data- and power-as-a-service within our oceans and seas. We are reinforcing the building blocks of our services' technology design, including static data capture through our PowerBuoy® platforms, as well as autonomous vehicles through our acquisition of Marine Advanced Robotics. We also partnered with experienced developers to bolster our proprietary Maritime Domain Awareness platform that will feature advanced analytic capabilities and military-grade cybersecurity. We believe this will result in larger MDA project scoping and a strong subscription business."
