Dron marítimo con funcionalidades innovadoras tanto para planear como para semisumergirse que incorpora un vehículo submarino y un vehículo aéreo


Oferta Tecnológica
Una start-up italiana dirigida por investigadores diseña y ensambla drones marítimos patentados con estructura modular para aplicaciones en superficie, debajo del agua y en el aire. Este dron puede explotarse en distintas aplicaciones y mercados gracias a la posibilidad de planear y semisumergirse y puede incorporar módulos adicionales. El dron puede operar en cualquier entorno marítimo, moverse de forma rápida y sumergirse, siendo útil en operaciones de búsqueda y rescate, estudios medioambientales, prospección arqueológica y exploración multimedia. Se buscan instituciones académicas con el fin de establecer acuerdos de investigación, así como socios industriales para establecer acuerdos de fabricación. La empresa también está abierta a firmar acuerdos comerciales con asistencia técnica.


Marine drone, with innovative capabilities both of glide and of semi-immersion, incorporating a submarine vehicle and a air vehicle.
An Italian startup, led by researches, designs and assembles marine drones, already patented, with a modular structure, for surface, underwater and air applications.It is expoitable for different applications and markets thanks to the possibility to glide and semi-dive and to add additional modules.Academic institutions for research agreement and industrial partner for manufacturing agreements are sought.Also a commercial agreement with technical assistance will be proposed to both partners.
The Italian company is led by a staff of researchers, with specific competences in mobile robotics, naval automation, programming microcontrollers, development of electronic cards, radio communication equipment terrestrial and satellite, networks and computer science, automatic control, Computer Assisted Design (CAD) modeling, fluid dynamics analysis.
The team experimented, between 2010 and 2014, the construction of two marine remote-controlled drones, one with a petrol engine and the other with electric propulsion and tilting side floats.
In 2011 it was realized the first marine drone prototype, petrol fueled. After its testing, a new prototype was realized with exclusive electric motor and tilting side floats. In November 2014 this drone has been tested at the Lake of Piana degli Albanesi waters (Palermo-Italy).
Currently it is being implemented with new features, such as the ability to glide and semi-immersion, and the incorporation of submarines and air modules.
The realized marine drones are innovative marine vehicles, without pilot, remotely controlled with robust electronic devices (from the industrial automation sector),characterized by low price and by a modular design adaptable to customer requirements.
The base technology consists in a vehicle with an electric motor and jet propulsion, with two floats driven by servo actuators that enable the stabilization during the surfing the glide and dive operations phases.
The innovative vehicle with a remote control system is implemented through terrestrial and satellite links for radio connection.
These features allow the drone to operate in every marine environment, to move quickly (in relation to the power and type of engine choice) and to dive, making it useful for operations such as search and rescue, environmental instrumental survey, archeological survey, multimedia survey.
The technology on board allows to patrol and perform reconnaissance of oil platforms,coastlines,lakes, rivers,dams and ports,to make morph bathymetric reliefs and physical, chemical, environmental and archeological analysis

The team intend to explore research agreements with research institutions to design a new hull for the drone and manufacturing agreement with small or medium-sized industrial enterprises, interested in the implementation of innovative marine drones, and in the placing of such technologies on the market. The proposers will ensure the relative technical assistance.

Advantages and Innovations:
The Semi-Immergible Unmanned Surface Vehicle (SI-USV) Drone has innovative elements, such as the ability to glide and to operate in semi-immersion (that allows to operate in shallow waters) with considerable quickness, depending on the version with electric or hybrid engine, and it becomes almost invisible in semi immersion.
In this way the product can be used to realize patrols, reconnaissances and supervisions or to make instrumental survey without being affected by wave motions.
It is also possible to recharge the incorporated batteries by docking stations (buoy) with telemetry capability, able to provide an almost unlimited autonomy.
The modular design also allows to insert several types of modules for monitoring waters and archaeological research, according to the client needs.
The drone can be realized in 2 sizes (2 or 6 meters), is easy to be transported in the appropriate cart, and is characterized by a low price level, approx -Y-euro;. 50,000.
Finally the remote control via terrestrial or satellite radio communication link allows to never lose contact with the drone, regardless of its location.
Stage of Development:
Field tested/evaluated
Patents granted
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
The patent application for the marine drone with capability of semi-immersion and glide was registered in Italy in 2012 and the patent was granted in 2015. The proposers intend to deploy new features of navigation and immersion, which will lead to a new Italian patent deposit, to be extended to different states of the European community.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The company is searching for:
· partners in the academic sector to reach a research cooperation agreement in order to design a new hull for the innovative marine drone;
· partners in industrial sectors, with skills in the production of drones not specifically on marine sector. In this case a manufacturing agreement will be proposed also to build the new hull;
To both partners the proposer will ask to cooperate and to create a synergy in order to realize and place on the market their innovative marine drones. In case of success a commercial agreement with technical assistance is envisaged.
