Structure Frame and Fitting

The drone is a quadcopter platform designed for the marine environment with target recognition and autonomous navigation capabilities.

The whole mission can be monitored through the control unit by the operators, who can take direct control of the drone at any time.

The software analyzes all images taken by a daylight camera and an infrared camera, looking for the MOB across the sea surface.

The classification and recognition is performed by machine-learning running on the on-board controller.

The images of the scanned area are localized on the scenario map of the console for visual inspection.

The control station and the drone exchange commands and telemetry through a Wi-Fi radio link.
