e-Navigation testbed and development of equipment for e-Navigation

e-Navigation concept is developed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to improve shipping through better organization of data on ships and on shore, and better data exchange and communication between ships and the ship and shore.

The project contributes to the development of software and equipment for implementation of the e-Navigation concept as well as development of commercial products for e-Navigation which are based on the solutions developed under the given project.

Expected project results include:

– Architecture of pilot testbeds for the e-Navigation has been developed (more…)

Design and creation of innovative multipurpose high-speed transport platform of new generation

In alignment to the transport policy of our country, as well as the solution of existing contemporary problems of shipbuilding industry in General (the lack of a competitive Navy, high age threshold in operation of marine transport vessels, high threshold of moral and physical deterioration of enterprises, obsolete technical and design decisions, the lack of domestic capacities to meet the demand in heavy-tonnage vessel, etc.) JSC “R.E. Alexeev’s Hydrofoil Design Bureau carries out the perspective works on ekranoplanes of new generation of various modifications. (more…)

Marine Multipurpose Unmanned Platform

The platform is a composite autonomous vessel intended for the collection and transmission of information. It is driven by wind power through the installation of a rigid sail-wing, as well as for accurate positioning will be equipped with azipod systems with brushless electric motors. The installation of solar panels and wind generators for charging the batteries and supplying the “azipod” system is envisaged in order to stabilize and position the drone on the water surface.

RDC Aqualines. Modern rapid fleet.

The overall goal of the project is to increase the speed of sea transportation in principle. Options for solving this problem are ekranoplans and hydrofoil vessels.

The result of the project (product) should be the development of a basic technical appearance (platform), as well as the technical and operational design, production of a specific vehicle – the multipurpose marine ekranoplan EP-15 (length 16.5 m, displacement 5.5 tons, capacity 15 people) and putting it into operation.

The purpose of the vehicle is cargo and passenger transportation at the speed of up to 200 km/h on the route lines of 50 – 300 km, with a 3 points wave. Herewith, the ekranoplan has no need for airport infrastructure and certification procedures related to aviation.
