Alle sectoren

The international PERISCOPE workshop “Drone Applications Maritime Industry”, taking place in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, September 2nd, announced a Call for Speakers and invites interested parties to submit their presentation abstracts by Monday the 1-st of Augustus, 2019


Once submitted, all presentation abstracts will be evaluated by the PERISCOPE conference team to select speakers for technical presentations at the conference.

Presentation topics may include existing innovative drone solution but should focus on future use cases and technical developments required supporting among others the following domains in the Maritime Industry:
  • Regulations
  • Inspections Assets
  • Emissions
  • Search and Rescue
Intention of the workshop is to investigate a possible Joint Industry Project of partners who can support:
  • With the development of the technology,
  • With consultation/facilitation regarding regulatory requirements
  • As a launching customer
We want to achieve this by creation of insight of:
  • The actual needs of the market, what are the present challenges
  • The actual and future regulations, and find out how we can influence them
  • Technology and services which already can be provided
  • Technology and services which still need to be developed to meet the actual needs

This Joint Industry Project will be organized under the flag of PERISCOPE, a project co-funded by the North Sea Region Programme. The organization aims to establish a permanent innovation ecosystem in the North Sea Region to grow transnational innovation partnerships for sustainable business development in emerging blue markets.

The deep dive with the used cases of the use of drones in the Maritime Sector might lead to a large demonstration project in the following European Horizon 2020 call: ICT-09-2020: Robotics in Application Areas Sub topic B) Robotics for infrastructure inspection and maintenance Establish large-scale pilots capable of demonstrating the use of robotics at scale in actual or highly realistic operating environments; showcase advanced prototype applications built around platforms operating in real or near-real environments and demonstrate high levels of socio-economic impact.

The Joint Industry Project must give a boost to the development of technology that meets the actual needs of the Maritime market of all countries around the North Sea, and increase the use of drones in the Maritime Industry to save lives, increase the protection of our environment and achieve large operational cost reductions. We are looking forward to your presentation.
