Project Description

PASSport Eurecat

Operational Platform to manage a fleet of semi-autonomous drones exploiting GNSS high Accuracy and Authentication to improve security and safety in port areas.

The PASSport project designs and develops a new solution extending the situational awareness based on aerial fixed/rotary wing and underwater drones with the objective to improve safety in docklands.

The innovation promoted by the project aims to complement the current platforms by expanding the surveillance perimeter through a fleet of drones that provide operational support to the recognition, management and analysis of aspects related to security and other daily operations, paying special attention to the monitoring of pollution, support for electronic navigation, protection of critical buildings, protection against small non-cooperative vessels approaching the port area and monitoring of possible underwater threats.

The Robotics and Automation Unit of Eurecat develops and implements a rotary wing’s payload based on Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning which provides precise positioning, control and georeferencing.

The consortium of the project, coordinated by Sistematica, counts with the participation of 15 partners from 7 European countries.
