Sea Machines hires Trevor Vieweg for new CTO position

Boston-based Sea Machines Robotics, a leading developer of autonomous command and control systems for commercial vessels, announced today that it had hired Trevor Vieweg as chief technology officer (CTO), reporting to its CEO Michael G. Johnson. Effective earlier this month, this new position gives Vieweg responsibility for the company’s overarching technology strategy and continues to develop a high-performing team focused on developing advanced marine technology. Vieweg will also work closely with key regulators to help shape the industry’s evolving rules and governance surrounding autonomous marine and advanced perception technologies.

Vieweg joins Sea Machines from Viasat, a high-speed satellite broadband services provider and secure networking systems covering military and commercial markets. Having supported Viasat for more than a decade, he recently served as the head of product development, overseeing the technology teams focused on Viasat’s high-growth mobility business.

“Trevor is a proven technology leader with broad experience and passion for bringing cutting-edge solutions to new and underserved markets,” said Johnson. “Under his guidance, Sea Machines will leverage our past performance, as well as our legacy of technology excellence, to meet the demands of our industries head-on. The relationships he is cultivating now will continue to advance our company and our entire sector by accelerating the adoption of technology that brings forth a major retooling of marine industries to operate with much greater connectivity, productivity, and safety. We welcome Trevor aboard and look forward to his impact on our company and industries.”

“While Sea Machines serves the marine and maritime industries, fundamentally we are an advanced technology company,” said Vieweg. “I’m excited to work with our incredibly skilled team to bring truly revolutionary solutions to our customers and realize the potential for this technology in our market.”

Vieweg has held several technologies and product leadership positions at Viasat and at Nordson Asymtek, a supplier of automated fluid dispensing systems. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering from Cornell University and a Master’s in enterprise architecture from UC San Diego.​​​​
