Our history

Stinger Technology AS is a privately owned technology company, established by Bjarte Langeland in 2003. From the very start, Stinger Technology has been a pioneer in technology development, design, and use of small, light and remotely operated subsea vehicles on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The technology, the ROVs and the equipment are developed, produced, and assembled in Stavanger. The firs resident ROV with 24/7 operational capability was delivered in 2012 by Stinger.


Tau Autonomy Center

Stinger Technology AS is one of eight owners and contributors to Tau Autonomy Center (TAC), established in 2020 to provide the industry with a site for training, testing and qualifying underwater and aerial autonomous drones.

The centre is suitable for both aerial and subsea drones and offers good facilities, surroundings, and conditions for testing and qualifying all types of remotely controlled technology.

Stinger uses TAC to test and qualify both our in-house developed technology and our client’s subsea equipment. By testing our systems and solutions at TAC we ensure that we’re always delivering products of the highest standards focusing on quality, safety, and environment.

TAC Challenge

Stinger Technology is proud to host the TAC Challenge, one of Europe`s largest AUV competitions for university teams.

TAC Challenge is an annual subsea and aerial drone competition for university students from all over the world. The competition is a unique arena for testing new ideas whilst also executing community engagement by actively contributing to innovative technology development.

The competition takes place at Tau Autonomy Center in June each year,
 and runs over five action-filled days. During the competition days the teams will get the opportunity to test their equipment on real-life problems, challenge each other’s knowledge, and network with other students and organisations with similar interests to their own.

A panel of judges from leading industry companies serves as jury and mentors to guide the students through the process and missions.

TAC Challenge 2024 will host 180 participants from all over the world!

Stinger holds the sole responsibility for the entire event and the students will have to solve missions ranging from subsea docking, pipeline inspection, detection, intervention and manipulation, navigation and positioning, wireless communication and charging, and much more.
