Within this project BMO Measurement Solutions BV, located in Delft, researches the feasibility of the development of a technical solution that is able to generate advice during helicopter landing-operations on moving objects at sea (ships, platforms). Currently ships have technology available that indicates either or not it is safe to land given actual circumstances. With the envisioned innovations it will be possible to bend a negative indication into a positive one by smartly using available ship and other environmental data. The new Helicopter Offshore Landing Advisor will enable pilots to land their helicopter easier and more safely, by actively offering real-time advise to the pilot, even in harsh conditions.
TechForce has successfully applied for a MIT feasibility study subsidy. TechForce is also involved in the project and offers advice on commercial and financial feasibility of this innovative product development.
