The technical solutions division of Huntington Ingalls Industries (NYSE: HII) has made an equity investment in Boston-based Sea Machines Robotics.

“This investment represents our commitment to advanced innovation and competencies across the unmanned systems market,” Andy Green, an executive vice president and president of HII Technical Solutions and a 2020 Wash100 award winner, said in a statement published Wednesday.

Green added the company will continue to create complementary partnerships and invest in Sea Machines’ growth in the unmanned surface vessel industry.

Founded in 2015, Sea Machines is an autonomous technology company that develops software for USVs and workboats in support of customers in government, commercial and recreational markets.

The investment marks HII’s continued expansion in the autonomous and unmanned maritime systems sector. HII completed its acquisition of Hydroid in March, gaining access to the latter’s Remus and Seaglider autonomous underwater vehicles.
