How might we deliver an AED safely and precisely from a small fixed wing drone?
Operational profile - Aerodynamic configuration - Off-the-shelf solutions suitability - Aerodynamic design - Prototyping
What would be the optimum airframe for the SSRS drone use profile? Is it commercially available? If not, what would it look like?
Web based drone control
How might we design a robust service that can stay connected to a fleet of launch-ready drones and provide instant access for operators anywhere?
A collaborative methodology for understanding technology landscapes
During the summer of 2016 the RNLI embarked on a Technology Roadmapping exercise with the support of the Institute for Manufacturing’s Education and Consultancy Services (IfM ECS) and the assistance of third parties to help explore the future of search and rescue communications and ‘calling for help’ on, in...
Publishing a Cloud-connected Vehicle’s position through the AIS Ground Station Network
Help us build the service layer that pulls position data from a Cloud Service, converts it to the AIS message format and pushes the messages to the Ground Station Network Servers!
Drone system to support Search and Rescue
This project is an exploration of how the Swedish Sea Rescue Society and similar Search and Rescue organizations might use a system where a central operator could remotely launch and control small aircrafts housed in automatic launching boxes at our rescue stations.
How might we use all available networks for maximum bandwidth or redundancy?
Cell carrier aggregation is used in several industries, e.g. to send broadcast quality video from TV cameras. How could this be adapted to the demands of small UAV:s?
How might we design a marine AIS Transponder with flight control redundancy?
Airborne AIS technology could add another layer of collision avoidance and streamline situational awareness for Search & Rescue parties.
A Boat Driven and Powered Totally by Solar Energy
For a humanitarian and emergency aid outpost/ boat, hundreds of horsepower are not required for a 12,000 pound, forty foot boat such as the MOG Solar Electric Boat to move through the water safely. All electricity for drive and appliances comes from the solar array atop the boat, currently over...
How might we communicate locally by Air- and Marine VHF voice radio from a remote drone over an internet connection?
