Unmanned aerial vehicles ( a k a drones, allow researchers to investigate new and challenging problems that are otherwise difficult or impossible to address by conventional means The use of integrated systems (e g UAVs LiDAR) and advanced technology ensures highly accurate data collection, provides quality deliverables, and exceptional performance in diverse environments and conditions Applications of UAVs include Forestry and Natural Resources Management, Environmental monitoring and sampling, Arctic research, Meteorological research, Mapping and more The sky is the limit, and even the bottom of the sea when talking about underwater drones! Join us for an introduction to UAVs and hear about some of the new and exciting applications of this rapidly growing technology.

Collaboration with REV Ocean

Partnering with SeaBee’s project lead NIVA, REV Ocean’s vessel will enable NIVA to map new horizons and analyse changes in blue carbon habitats and resources, ecosystem structure, functioning, and changes in an era of anthropogenic pressure.

«The development and use of new, advanced platforms for data collection and analysis, will provide great opportunities for both research and data sharing. Combining this with the facilities offered through REV Ocean, NIVA is looking forward to exciting, cooperative research projects for the future,” says Tor-Petter Johnsen, NIVA Managing Director.

Using the REV Ocean’s vessel as a platform for drone mapping, monitoring and research will open new doors for a healthy ocean and a safer future. We’re looking forward to working together!

REV Ocean is a not-for-profit company created with one overarching purpose and ambition: To make the ocean healthy againAny profit generated from our projects will be reinvested into our work for a healthier ocean. The company was established July 20th, 2017 and funded by Norwegian business-man Kjell Inge Røkke.
