Mission Statement

The mission of RISE is to apply scalable robotic technology to solving large-scale environmental challenges and to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers through our efforts.  Our initial focus is to provide a targeted solution for lionfish population control and help restore a balance to subsea ecosystems in the western Atlantic.
