Russia announced a series of projects in the field of unmanned navigation

In the framework of the international exhibition SMM in Hamburg,  MARINET hosted the international conference dedicated to the most promising technologies for the maritime industry, which was attended by companies and research centers from different countries of the world.

The conference program included panel discussions on digital navigation and unmanned vessels, as well as a pitch session on the marine robotics.

During the conference, Alexey Donskoy, Director of Engineering Center of Shipbuilding (ECS) told about the successful creation of unmanned boats by SPE AME and the conversion of the developed technologies for the civil shipbuilding. ECS in cooperation with AME plans to start in 2018 and 2019 a number of pilot projects to test autonomous and remote control vessels: sea/river bulk cargo ship, a small-tonnage tanker,  a ferry and an icebreaker.

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.

Complex maritime robotic system for the offshore operations

Complex maritime robotic system provides the interaction of the underwater, surface and air unmanned vehicles (groups of vehicles). Intellectual information management system (IMS) allows to significantly simplify and automate the control of the robots. With the IMS an operator can develop a task (mission), test it, program the functioning of each robot, monitor the process execution and the technical condition of the elements of the complex robotic system, collect and process the incoming information,  quickly correct the actions or change the mission completely.
