Mr. Curcio received his Master’s of Engineering and Master’s of Science in Ocean Engineering and Ocean Systems Management from MIT in 1995. While at MIT, Mr. Curcio worked on the design and development of early Odyssey Class AUVs. Prior to MIT, Mr. Curcio received his B.S.in Mechanical Engineering at UVM and worked aboard several large sailing vessels including two of the historic J-Class yachts Endeavour and Shamrock V for several years.
Prior to joining Juliet Marine Systems, Mr. Curcio ran a small marine engineering company that developed a low cost autonomous surface craft (SCOUT) used for marine research. Working with engineers and professors at MIT, Mr. Curcio directed at-sea experiments using a small fleet of these unmanned surface craft to demonstrate collaborative COLREGS compliant autonomy behaviors.
