Partnering opportunity

Spanish SME specialized in the development of unmanned vessels is looking for commercial agreements

Summary

The SME specializes in the development of high reliable and advanced performance unmanned vessels that can be used in a wide range of sectors: - Safety and Security. - Search and Rescue. - Environmental Control. - Oceanic Research. The company is looking for commercial agreements with technical assistance and joint venture agreements.

Partner sought

The Spanish company, specialized in the development of Unmanned Surface Vehicles is looking for commercial agreements with technical assistance, among the maritime and oceanic sectors, specifically those regarding safety, security, search and rescue, as well as environmental control and marine research. The SME is also interested in establishing joint venture agreements with potential partners.

Description

The system is composed by an Unmanned Surface Vehicle, a communications link and a Ground Control Station: • The Unmanned Surface Vehicle is developed from a commercial boat which meets the requirements of the final application. The standard boat design includes some specific modifications related to the physical configuration and the on-board electronics. The boat is also provided with the unmanned capabilities thanks to the installation of electronics interfaces, on-board software and dedicated communications equipment. On-board payloads (sensors, mechanical equipment, etc.) are defined and integrated according to the application. • The high bandwidth communications link provides enough capability to send to the Ground Control Station in real time all information gathered by the on-board sensors and the boat telemetries. It also allows to receive the telecommands sent by the GCS. The system has a nominal link and a backup one to ensure a high effectiveness. The Ground Control Station receives and processes payload data plus navigation & housekeeping boat/engine telemetries. All data are listed and plotted in ad-hoc software applications. Boat position is showed at any time in an electronics navigation chart as well as the position of surrounding vessels.

Advantages and innovations

Unmmaned Surface Vehicles have important advantages with regard to manned vessels and they are indicated for safety, security, search & rescue, environmental control and oceanic research purposes. The nature of Unmmaned Surface Vehicles improves and enables users to perform maritime operations in a safe and efficient way, solving the following problems and difficulties: • Operations in large areas of interest. • Perform repetitive and tedious operations. • Keep a high level of safety for the crews. • All time operations (day/night and bad weather conditions). • Responsiveness. The company develops high reliable unmanned systems to perform maritime operations and solve most of the problems mentioned above and more specifically: • Persistence and long endurance (24-48 hours). • Programmable paths & tasks allowing repetitive operations. • Eliminates risks for the crews: all time/situation operations. • It allows to increase the risk in the operations (no crews on-board). • Very quick launch and deployment. • Lower operational cost than manned vessels.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
