We have been given a grant from the Danish Innovation Fund to make our Cumulus One fixed wing drone able to land fully automated on a ship deck or other moving targets.

Already today Cumulus One flies fully automated including automated landings on ground with a precision of 10-20 meters. But the demand for use of drones at sea has made us realize, that we need to teach Cumulus One how to land on moving targets, e.g. ship decks, that moves forward and up and down because of waves.

Normally only helicopters can land on small areas on ship decks, but through Cumulus One’s already existing ability to decend vertically though beeing a fixed wing aircraft and through new development of more precise GPS sensors and an advanced mathematical model, we’ll now give you a fixed wing drone that lands automatically on even small ship decks.
