We're revolutionising maritime surveillance supporting coastguard operations using remotely piloted aircraft systems RPAS / UAS, enabling applications which were not previously possible.

Martek are pioneers of this service which is being delivered to all EU member states through our OP12 contract with the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA).

You can rely on Martek as the world authority on maritime drone applications for expert advice on 'best in class' platforms, payloads & software to deliver you a complete disruptive drone solution. We're streets ahead of anyone else - you can see that from the attached press release showcasing our contract with European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) to deploy high-end UAV technology in pollution enforcement duties. We were recently featured on BBC World News broadcast to a worldwide audience of 80million people, showcasing our unique abilities.

The nature of this sector is one of rapid change and to ensure we keep you ahead of the game, our team last year travelled >100,000 miles, took >100 flights, engaged directly with 301 manufacturers / inventors and deeply evaluated 95 offerings. Every day we review 200+ industry posts, articles, magazines, tweets, blogs, podcasts, newsletters & videos. This is our unique commitment to you so you can be certain you're getting the best maritime drone solutions available.

We’re currently working with a number of major classification societies, flag administrations & major ship operators helping them develop/refine their own drone strategies to revolutionise their business and disrupt the market.
