Developing intelligent drones to detect marine life and illegal fishing 

With an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers, naval and aerospace engineers, we are working on developing a set of innovative systems integrating new satellite tag technology, autonomous drones, machine learning, and big data, to detect illegal fishing in remote large marine reserves and the high-seas.

We are developing anti-poaching satellite- and radio-tagging based technologies to aid monitoring and enforcement in remote large marine protected areas. And we are designing monitoring systems using swarms of autonomous intelligent drones to detect fishing vessels as they intrude into restricted locations.
