17:00 - 17:20 DDMF PROJECT - Specialized Autonomous Drone for Maritime Use
by Vincent Tofterup & Benjamin Mejnertz, Upteko

With the aim to bring Harsh environment Specialized Autonomous drone technology into the maritime industry, Upteko has developed a multifunctional drone system, to support a large variety of maritime operations. Comprising of 3 main components, this industrial drone system is the perfect innovative assistance for improving day-to-day maritime operations. Upteko has been consistently involved with the maritime industry since its inception. We are developing a drone system solution to live on the ship, to connect vessel,wind energy and port operations on the ground and at the sea, with insight from
the sky. This system includes a software, drone and a charging station for the drone that will be installed on the ship. The drone can autonomously perform a variety of tasks and then fly back and charge its batteries while staying protected against the harsh environments at sea. Having a permanent drone on a ship will be extremely helpful in a number of cases that can range from Search and Rescue (SAR) operations, vessel docking, inspections, package delivery, fire hazard detection and situational awareness among other functionalities.

17:20 – 17:40 From idea to prototype – (with support from DDMF)
By Martin Stockholm & Lasse Skriver Møller, DanaDynamics

DanaDynamics was founded mid 2018. The objective was to develop an autonomous maritime drone platform with modularity to perform various survey operations. In 2019 they launched the first prototype specially designedto perform bathymetric surveys in harbours and shallow water areas.DanaDynamics is founded by Martin Stockholm and Lasse Skriver Møller with funding from Den Danske Maritime Fond and Syddansk Innovation. DanaDynamics is developing the next level of their autonomous system along with the building of a new prototype for environmental surveys.
Martin and Lasse will share their journey with DanaDynamics and their committed team of now 8 employees.

18:50 – 19:10 SHIPPING LAB Project - Automatic Optimized Coastal Routing
by Christian Råe Holm, Head of Performance Management, Coach Solutions

The near-coastal parts of a route are not calculated exactly but are indicated graphically and it is expected that the crew adjusts these parts of the route considering local navigational restrictions.
This project supported by the Danish Maritime Fund has developed a methodology to collect and transfer the necessary information from Electronical Nautical Charts (ENC’s) in vector format and use them to calculate a route which adheres to the restrictions found in the ENC’s.
