 Project objective

With Upteko we want to revolutionize the maritime industry, by offering the first fully integrated drone system for ship operations. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), also known as drones, are increasingly impacting our everyday lives in several commercial sectors. Their potential in the maritime industry is huge, especially regarding security, environmental surveillance, reduce operational costs and monitoring. Drones can easily go where the humans cannot. However, their use in the sector is still at a very early stage. Drone technologies have emerged, but they are usually limited to single tasks and they face specific challenges as restricted fly duration and difficulty in operating in extreme weather conditions. These challenges prevent the maritime industry to fully benefit from UAV technology. Our company was founded in 2018 (origin in Creative Sight, founded in 2010) with the goal to take the lead in developing the next generation of drones for maritime operations. To achieve that, our highly skilled team (most experience drone team in Denmark) developed Upteko, an autonomous, multi-rotor UAV solution to meet the industry needs. Upteko is a holistic and fully autonomous combination of features, including high quality thermographic sensors and air pollution detector, for advanced ship inspection and data mining. The enhanced monitoring services our technology provides can result in 90% less damages for vessels. Able to prevent fire incidents through hot spot identification, our innovation can also reduce the human risk factor on a ships. Moreover, Upteko allows a 17% faster and safer harbor docking, early detection of pirate attacks (via visual data) and it constitutes a solid construction able to fly at winds of up to 70km/h. Upteko has attracted the attention of the world biggest shipping companies as DFDS, Maersk and DS Norden. With an extra investment of €1.55 million we aim to become the leading supplier and operator of drones for maritime applications.
