Clever Buoy Demo at Bondi
UVS has supported demonstration of the Optus Clever Buoy at the iconic Bond Beach in Sydney, Australia.
Mobilising from specialised workshops located in Newcastle, UVS completed pre-deployment checks of the Clever Buoy in preparation for the demonstration. The UVS engineering team originally developed the Clever Buoy working with Shark Mitigation Services and Optus to develop a broad concept into a detailed design and working prototype in just 12 weeks. UVS engineers supported the demonstration with deployment of the Clever Buoy at Bondi showing the capability for detection at the busy Sydney beach.
