Thanks to Anton to be the first to ask this question.
Definitely, everything we generate with kickstarter funds and a whole lot besides will be open source!
There is an issue to be aware of though: to be able to get the real work of reef restoration started as soon as possible, we expect we will need to exploit some h/w and s/w that has already been designed, including some off the shelf equipment (some we have already and some we don't). It could be that not all of that is open source yet. Basically, the fastest way to get these problems addressed means (for example) that we stand on the shoulders of some visual servoing ware that comes packaged with a particular robot gripper (that sort of thing). But I repeat, of course all code we generate, and any new h/w, will be open. This certainly includes all of the swarm intelligence aspects and machine vision for coral (and similar) recognition, and so on. And we will advise on open alternatives for anything we happen to make use of that isn't, until we have the resource to develop/adopt that ourselves too.
