How it Works
FLYING ABOVE WATER
The Oceanflight control system comprises three essential components:
sensing, computing and actuation.
SUPERIOR UNDERSTANDING OF THE SITUATION
All together gives us a concrete & fast understanding of the environment
° RTK GPS and Inertial Measurement Unit with ultra-fast tightly coupled
sensor-fusion algorithms for precise attitude, heading and position measurements
° Multiple sensors enabling flying height and wave height detection
° Short- and mid-range obstacle avoidance sensors, over and under water
COMPUTING & COMMUNICATION
REDUNDANCY, SPEED AND OPTIMIZED DATA HANDLING
Oceanflight’s Central Control Unit (CCU) serves as both a flight controller
and a central communication hub for the entire boat
° Redundant and proven flight control stack, based on 15 years of drone experience
° Fully redundant high speed FDCAN-network between all Oceanflight components
° Save and flexible interface of diverse maritime standard components:
Control motors, thrusters, helm stations, anchors, etc with ease
° Embedded high level Linux-based compute for non-critical tasks,
exhaustive logging, data analysis and remote support via a state-of-the- art encrypted cloud link
HIGHLY DYNAMIC AND PRECISE MOVEMENT
Oceanflight’s actuators are purposely designed for foiling boats and
deliver a smooth ride in combination with the flight control system.
° Actuator and flap dynamics define control authority and bandwidth.
° Multiple sizes available.
° Designed for reliability, easy integration and maintenance.
