We continuously thrive to develop and innovate drone technology for improving the maritime sector.

 Operational Package Deliveries with Drones

In this project, the project partners develop and test two helicopter drones to improve the freight and transfer of equipment to wind turbine engineers at sea. The prototype drone can carry 5-10 kg worth of cargo. The drones must either fly from a land-based warehouse to the offshore wind turbine or from the service ship that follows the technician. By using pack drones, the cost of servicing offshore wind turbines will be reduced.

 Offshore Operating Drones

In the project, the partners will combine known sensor and drone technology to collect data and alert authorities about any potential gas leaks. The finished product will be a drone that can be controlled by a drone operator remotely from a ship to detect potential leaks and hazards on offshore platforms. Along the way, the partners will test the combined drone and sensor technology in windy weather for up to 15 meters per second. The solution will be further developed so that the technology can find other applications in the offshore industry.

Contactless Laser-Induced Photoluminescence Imaging(LIPI) for Drone-Based Photovoltaic inspection

The aim of the project is to develop a drone-based solution for fast and accurate inspection of photovoltaic (PV) plants in operation. The technology builds on a combination of a line laser and a short-wave infrared (SWIR) camera, where the latter is sensitive to silicon and therefore reemits the laser light. By scanning with the laser and camera over the PV panels, high-resolution images can be obtained revealing potential microcracks and faults well before they become critical to energy production.

LIPI, because of its high accuracy level and ability to work in any weather conditions, will replace infrared imaging systems that are currently used for drone-based outdoor inspection of installed PV systems. Luminescence imaging is the most precise technology for fault identification and can be used as quality control before shipment of photovoltaic modules. The current project brings the technology onto a drone and in the field.

Drone Surveillance System

The aim of this anti-piracy project is to develop a drone-based solution for a fast and accurate investigation of surrounding vessels approaching the ship.

This would not only minimize costs but also increase the safety of the crew onboard by allowing for a faster identification of possible pirates looking to attack by the use of our drone system.

The current application feature is that of Perimeter Patrol, which allows any member of the crew to investigate surrounding vessels approaching the ship. Within the drone system, a built-in feature is added to allow a crew member with no prior drone experience, to operate and control the aerial camera in any direction.
