DRONEQ TO DEVELOP MARITIME DRONES

DRONEQ to develop drones for civilian maritime applications within the MDI

NHN is a fixed point of contact for all activities related to the development of Holland over Amsterdam. NHN focuses primarily on supporting entrepreneurs, but also on marketing Holland over Amsterdam and improving the business climate, so that new companies are attracted and incumbents can grow. One of the projects nhn has set up is the Maritime Drone Initiative (MDI).

The North Sea is increasingly used by, among other things, the construction of wind farms, sustainable energy generation at sea and busier shipping traffic. More supervision is necessary. Maritime drones are a solution for this. For this reason, the Maritime Drone Initiative North Holland (MDI) cluster was established in Den Helder. Thanks to this initiative, Dutch companies will have the opportunity to develop drones. The MDI is home to Den Helder Airport. In and around this location it is possible to conduct tests and flights and give market demonstrations. By attracting start-ups and scale-ups, MDI contributes to the ambition to make more people work, live and undertake more people in the Noordkop. Moreover, it fulfils the need to create more jobs in the field of knowledge and technology, which younger generations are attracted to.

DroneQ Maritime Aerial Services Den Helder will work within the MDI to (continue) develop drones for civilian maritime applications, draw up standard scenarios to enable test and operational flights and design and design and realize a Maritime Drone Command Center (MDCC) and raise awareness of these applications for the maritime sector through events such as presentations and demonstrations. Maritime applications including drones with more than 3 1/2 hours of flight time and 100km of range will be further developed.

DroneQ, also a participant of the test and innovation center Space53, has also set up a Maritime Drone Center (MDC) in Den Helder. The MDC is the base for DroneQ Maritime Aerial Services which focuses on maritime drone operations, developing civilian maritime drones and developing the region in the field of support services using drones. The drone operations include industrial inspections, thermal and video inspections, maritime disaster and emergency aerial support, SAR missions, environmental monitoring, gas detection, surveying and mapping and cinematography in the field of the offshore industry, wind and solar energy, telecom and nature management.

DRONEQ LAUNCHES DRONE OPERATION CENTER

DroneQ launches the new DRONE OPERATION CENTER

Many requirements are placed on commercial drone operations, including obtaining the necessary permits under laws and regulations to performing risk analyses. The right organization that contributes to the safe and efficient planning and efficient planning and efficient operation of commercial drone operations are also complex and numerous. Things such as operational and emergency procedures, resource management to use the RPAS crew with the right certification, experience and skills, project management to meet customer expectations and maintain the maintenance state of it equipment must be used correctly.

To facilitate and maintain the high level of drone operations, DroneQ has set up a state-of-the-art Drone Operation Center (D-DOC) in which all these processes and procedures are optimized and made operational. The D-DOC scheduled drone operations, supports execution and facilitates customers in consolidating drone data and supports in analyzing and classifying the results of drone inspections, which include use artificial intelligence and advanced machine learning.

The DroneQ Drone Operation Center is prepared for future developments such as remote drone operations, autonomous drone operations and U-Space through a modular and universal process build-up. New technologies and changes to laws and regulations can therefore be easily implemented in D-DOC. DroneQ is working with
Drone Flight Company
(DFC) in the areas of laws and regulations and training and
Space53
, the innovation and testing center for the region and beyond.

DroneQ has a proven track record in the field of ISO and Cobit frameworks and has set up the D-DOC processes and procedures in such a way that the Drone Operation Center is in design ready for the recently introduced ISO standard “ISO 21384 Unmanned Aircraft Systems Part 3: Operational Procedures”. These underlying processes and procedures will be applied and established in such a way that DroneQ will comply with Design, Existence and Operation as intended under the ISO standard! This gives drone Operation Center customers assurance that drone operations of DroneQ are carried out by a high standard, but where a realistic pragmatism is above all else in the way drone operations are performed. Quality and customer friendliness remain at the top of what makes DroneQ a trusted and reliable business partner for their customers!
