Aquatic Drones

Our Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASV) are multi-use robots with a wide range of sensors  enabling an autonomous operating system with object detection and avoidance. They can collect, analyze and interpret data, which simultaneously facilitates our predictive maintenance models. These can deliver data processing and predictive maintenance algorithms that fit client workflows and software. 

More data, less costs, lower carbon footprint.

We develop sustainable solutions in open collaboration with technical frontrunners, customers, development partners, research institutes, suppliers and experts. We manifest the highest value for human, economic and ecologic progress by establishing smart, safe and sustainable solutions.

Sensor redundancy for safety and reliability

5 sensor systems onboard for situational awareness. Sensor data are processed and overlapping signals are cross checked for highest secured situational awareness.

  • Automatic Information System (AIS)
  • LiDAR
  • Camera
  • Forward Looking Sonar (FLS)

Multi-channel communication system

Our vessels make use of multiple connunication systems to ensure good communications at all times. This enables operators to keep track of the status, location. survey data, situational awareness and more.
