Defence, commercial and scientific companies depend on Bluefin’s robot submarines for subsea surveys and engineering tasks such as pipeline visual surveying.
Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton said Cathx Ocean has secured a number of recent deals in Europe and the US to grow its export sales and is now creating 50 further jobs in Ireland.
The trade mission coincides with the Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, which a number of Irish companies are attending including Cathx Ocean.
Bluefin Robotics CEO David Kelly said his company had selected the Cathx system because it provides the highest underwater image resolution available.
Cathx Ocean currently employs 30 people in Ireland and also has offices in Boston.
