Research & Development Projects

We cooperate with universities and institutes to keep up with the current state of scientific knowledge and research. We do also have an internal development department to be able to offer state-of-the-art to our clients.

  Providing new technology for Arctic and Antarctic ocean monitoring. The „Dagmar Aaen“ being a small ship makes it perfectly suitable for collecting data directly in areas where it has been necessary to extrapolate missing scientific data until now.

started 2014

 cMODEM  Development of an AUV underwater docking station with inductive power charging of e.g. Li-Ion batteries. Additional wireless high-speed data connection min. 1MBit with magnetic coupling. In cooperation between Kiel University of Applied Sciences (FH-Kiel), Kiel University – Faculty of Engineering (CAU Technische Fakultät) and SubCtech. SubCtech is the co-investor of this challenging and innovative project to bring this technology „Made in Germany“ to the market.

2012 – 2014

 The Programme for the Future–Economy finances the development of the new water quality monitoring system. For the period 2007 – 2013, the Programme for the Future – Economy – comprises roughly EURO 704 m. for economic and regional promotion in Schleswig-Holstein, thereof ca. EURO 374 m. out of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), ca. EURO 208 m. out of the Federal/State Joint Agreement “Improvement of Regional Economic Structures” (GRW) and complementary State Funds of ca. EURO 122 m.
 The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme managed by REA – Research Executive Agency, FP7/2007 – 2013 under Grant Agreement no. 606199 and grant agreement no 614155
