Unmanned Life has been chosen to trial its groundbreaking systems as part of the Connected Places Catapult’s Maritime Accelerator program. As a distinguished member of the European Super Angels Club (ESAC) portfolio, Unmanned Life is set to redefine security paradigms in port facilities through its visionary software platform, U-Security. Let’s delve into the significant strides Unmanned Life is making in reshaping the landscape of port security. Furthermore, we highlight its pivotal role in advancing environmental and security concepts within the maritime industry.
Connected Places Catapult’s Maritime Accelerator program
The Connected Places Catapult’s Maritime Accelerator program recently identified two visionary companies to trial their innovative systems. Moreover, Unmanned Life stood out with its commitment to reshaping security paradigms in ports. In detail, it is set to showcase the prowess of its autonomous drone deployment technology. This happens alongside Geospatial Insight, which utilizes data analytics and satellite imagery for monitoring air quality and greenhouse gas emissions.
£60,000 are funding these trials, reflecting the strategic importance of advancing environmental and security concepts in the maritime industry. Unmanned Life is part of a cohort of six small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) shortlisted by the Maritime Accelerator. Undoubtedly, it has emerged as a key player in this transformative journey.
Revolutionizing Port Security
Unmanned Life acknowledges the inherent challenges of security and monitoring in the complex environments of ports. For instance, traditional surveillance tools, such as CCTV, often face limitations like blind spots, restricted range, and manual errors. Therefore, in response to these challenges, Unmanned Life has developed U-Security, which leverages autonomous drones for industrial security purposes.
Nicholas Zylberglajt, the CEO of Unmanned Life, expresses the company’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of autonomous drone operations within ports. “Unmanned Life’s software is poised to undergo rigorous testing. This further enables rapid and remote execution of security, inspection, and worker safety tasks within the Port of Tyne. The primary focus of this deployment revolves around tackling real-world challenges and optimizing operational efficiency. This initiative also serves as a steppingstone towards the eventual implementation of fully autonomous robotics operations in ports in the near future.” Emphasizing the role of technology in achieving globally competitive UK ports, Zylberglajt outlines the objectives of the U-Security deployment.
As a proud member of the European Super Angels Club’s portfolio, Unmanned Life stands at the forefront of innovation in port security. The trials of its U-Security platform underscore the company’s commitment to reshaping traditional paradigms. Furthermore, it is offering a glimpse into the future of autonomous and intelligent security solutions for maritime environments. ESAC takes pride in supporting Unmanned Life’s endeavors, recognizing the transformative impact it has on the landscape of port operations and security.
