SARUMS - Safety and Regulations for European Unmanned Maritime
The European Defence Agency in cooperation with the working group on Safety and Regulations for European Unmanned Maritime Systems (SARUMS) calls for papers to be presented at the second workshop “Exploring Safe design and operations for the European Unmanned Maritime Systems”. The workshop will take place on 23-24 October 2013 in Brussels.
UMS safety related to operation -
Systems, procedures, experience to achieve safe operations
UMS safety related to design -
Systems, products, technology, research needed to accomplish safe unmanned systems
Exploring Safe design and operations for the European Unmanned Maritime Systems
The Workshop is free of charge but attendees are to arrange their own travel and hotel accommodations. Registration for attendance will be issued in August.
Formal paper is not required but presentation should be supplied digitally in advance
for distribution to attendees.
An offer of a presentation should contain the following information:
1] Title of presentation
Abstracts of around 150 words should be submitted by email to: email@example.com by 15 September 2013. Your offer will be evaluated and you will be notified if your presentation is accepted as soon as possible but no later than end of September 2013.

The Bluefish SNAV platform, presently under development, is a robotic ocean workhorse. Based on a stable SWASH hull that can achieve high speeds for long duration. This robot ship uses no diesel fuel to monitor the oceans autonomously (COLREGS compliant) at 6-7 knots continuously 24/7 and 365 days a year - only possible with the revolutionary (patent) energy harvesting system. The vessel may also sprint from one location to another covering distances in excess of 100 nautical mile at speeds of over 10 knots - Thus may reach a target area within a relatively short response time. The hullform is ideal for automatic release and recovery of ROVs or towed arrays, alternating between drone and fully autonomous modes. International development partners and agents are welcome. Initial results suggest that this vessel pays for itself in fuel saved every ten years.
