First Fully Integrated Drone System for Maritime Operations

Project description

Safer shipping with the use of innovative drones

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones, were quickly adapted for use from their military origin as consumer fads and business tools. UPTEKO project focuses specifically on developing them for use in the shipping sector, which has attracted interest to address security and environmental concerns. Aiming to become a leading supplier in the sector, UPTEKO has attended to UAVs’ operational and weather limitations and created a multi-rotor UAV with temperature and air pollution sensors that can operate in winds of up to 70 km/h. Its features allow monitoring of human risk factors such as fire and piracy, and of environmental concerns including improved safety in docking.
