On June 1, the project “Application research in the area of ​​navigation, control, communication and data exchange technology between autonomous floating vessels and aircraft” was launched. It will be implemented for 36 months. The results of the project will be implemented in an innovative, autonomous ship technology.

The aim of the project is to carry out industrial and development research, which will be applied in the technology of autonomous sea-going vessel. The main technology element is the innovative navigation system, which utilizes, in addition to navigational devices installed on board, data from video surveillance conducted by unmanned aircraft.

The originator of the project is Dr. Eng. Capt. Piotr Wołejsza – President of Sup4NAV. Jolanta Koszelew, PhD, is responsible for the project.

The project is implemented by a multidisciplinary scientific and industrial consortium composed of a consortium leader – Bialystok University of Technology (Faculty of Mechanics and Computer Science), Foundation for Safety of Navigation and Environmental Protection in Iława and academic companies: Sup4NAV LLC And UpLogic LLC spin-off Bialystok Technical University.
