Resumen:
Una start-up griega especializada en diseño de sistemas electrónicos para monitorización en tiempo real de actividades náuticas ha diseñado y va a iniciar la producción de un dispositivo para veleros que permite a formadores náuticos mejorar las habilidades náuticas de sus clientes. La empresa busca fabricantes de sensores para la comunicación remota en tiempo real de la posición, velocidad, dirección e inclinación de equipos de windsurf y kitesurf o veleros pequeños, así como la dirección y velocidad del viento durante la navegación. Los sensores medirán estas variables y los datos serán enviados en tiempo real al formador. Esta información la utilizará para analizar la situación e informar al aprendiz sobre la acción que deba tomar para mejorar su rendimiento. La empresa está interesada en establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica.

Tittle:
A Greek start-up company is looking for technological partners in order to provide electronic sensors and communication systems for the remote monitoring of windsurfs, kitesurfs and sailing boats
Summary:
A Greek start-up has designed and intending to produce a device to be attached in small sailing boats. The device will be used by sailing trainers to improve the sailing skills of their clients. The company is looking for manufacturers of various sensors and middle range communication system designers to provide their products. The collaboration sought is technical cooperation agreement.
Description:
A Greek start-up company established by experienced windsurfing, sailing and computer science professionals aims to produce an electronic monitoring and communication device for use in water sport activities. The company specializes in the design of electronic systems applicable to the real-time monitoring of sailing activities.

In particular, the company is in search of technological partners able to produce sensors which can remotely communicate in real time the position, speed, direction, and inclination of windsurfs, kitesurfs or small sailing boats, as well as the direction and speed of apparent wind in sailing. These sensors will be integrated into a device which will be used for facilitating the training process of wind-surfers and sailors. The sensors of the device will be measuring the current value of the mentioned variables, and this data will be transmitted in real time to the trainer. Subsequently, the trainer will be using this information to assess the situation, and inform the trainee about the action he/she should take in order to improve his/her performance.

The technological partners will be requested to provide sensors and communication system which will be used in the construction of a device serving the previously described functionality. The Greek company together with the technological partners will test the functionality of the end-product on specific use cases pertaining to the predetermined functional requirements. The test results will be used for the calibration and tuning of the end-product, so it can operate as planned.

The company is looking for manufacturers of sensors or middle range communication system providers capable of being integrated into a device which can operate in the harsh conditions of a sea environment. The collaboration sought is technical cooperation agreement.
Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:
The technical specifications of sensors which will be integrated into the device, can be summarized as follows:

· The sensors should be as small and light as possible, so they can be integrated into a small-sized and light appliance.
· The sensors should operate on low power supply.
· The sensors should be durable and capable of operating in harsh conditions (sea environment).
· The cost of sensors should be low.
· The maintenance cost of sensors should be low.

The following sensors are sought:

· GPS subsystem providing information pertaining to the location, speed and direction of a wind-surf or sailing boat.
· Gyroscope
· Accelerometer
· Magnetic compass
· Wind speed and direction sensors
· Barometer

Also communication systems for medium distance (500 - 1000 meters) are sought to transfer the data of the sensors to the trainer.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
To develop the sailing training assistance device, the company is interested in collaborating with technological partners having expertise in the production of sensors and the communication system required. The Greek company together with the technological partners will test the functionality of the application on specific user cases prepared by the Greek company. The test results will be used for the calibration and tuning of the end-product, so it can fully meet the functional requirements.

The number of sensors per type which will be initially ordered is anticipated to be between 1000 and 2000 pieces, so that an equal number of monitoring devices (end-product) can be produced.

Type of collaboration sought is technical cooperation agreement.
