BOTHELL, Wash., Feb. 5 -- Microvision Inc.has entered into a joint marketing partnership with underwater search technology firm Nova Marine Exploration Inc. to market an underwater inspection system to port security operations around the country.
The agreement pairs the Nomad Personal Display System with Nova Marine's NovaRay remote operating vehicle that can survey underwater sites and transmit video images to the operator.
Using the Nomad system, the NovaRay pilot sees the navigational data superimposed over the color video monitor. Pilot attention stays focused on the surveillance while maintaining control of the NovaRay vehicle.
Under terms of the agreement, NovaMarine will recommend the Nomad system as an accessory for the NovaRay vehicle, and the two companies will target the enhanced NovaRay system to port security operations.
