Gecko Robotics , a company specializing in advanced robotics and software, signed a new demonstration contract with the United States Navy to contribute to the modernization of the manufacturing process of the $132 billion Columbia-class nuclear submarine program .

Gecko Robotics’ role in nuclear submarine manufacturing

Through its advanced weld inspection and data capabilities, Gecko aims to streamline inspection time and reduce costs in the manufacturing process, while generating a database to improve in-service maintenance cycles.

Jake Loosararian, CEO and co-founder of Gecko Robotics, said: ” We are pleased to expand our collaboration with the United States Navy, not only to streamline the ship maintenance process, but also to offer advanced capabilities in the manufacturing of the Columbia class program .”

Customer demand for more data about the manufacturing process to help implement better predictive maintenance is growing, and we are eager to begin this work with the Columbia subprogram .”

Under the recent contract established with BlueForge Alliance, a nonprofit integrator supporting the U.S. Navy Undersea Industrial Base, the Navy will integrate Gecko’s robotic and digital weld inspections to evaluate weld integrity during the manufacturing phase.

It should be noted that the digitization of the results of these welding inspections will be a significant change in a key manufacturing process of the Columbia class program, freeing up specialized labor for higher value tasks and eliminating the risk associated with welding conditions. unknown. The primary objective of the project is to validate the return on investment of Gecko’s weld inspection process at various levels of the Columbia class program supply chain.
