Underwater drones to cut cost of ocean exploration and shape the future of the maritime connected world.
Headquarters30-733 Kraków, Polska
NOA MARINE was founded established with a mission to develop and implement unique technological innovations for the maritime industry in the field of underwater propulsion systems inspired by biomimetics providing innovative data collection services for the marine environment to significantly reduce the cost of sea and ocean exploration costs in the near future.
Our long term goal is to provide fully autonomous and cost efficient data acquisition service for marine industry: off-shore, oil&gas & aquaculture business and for the whole world’s scientific community. We want to enable our future partners to gather data for their future clients faster and save money at the same time. Our technologies are protected also with international patents
Global ocean business related to off-shore investments and infrastructure development has a high demand for harnessing various types of data which is difficult to do at scale due to high operational costs of ships and manpower which makes sea data collection an expensive service. The price of hiring a ship is a dominant cost in each sea operation related to data collection mission. It can reach even up to 60% of overall mission budget. We know today that the seas and oceans hide tremendous wealth. With the fact that 5% of the oceans and seas have been explored so far - We aim to change everything by launching "the satellites of the seas" - allowing to remove the veil of secrecy.
“The Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV) market is projected to reach USD 5.20 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 14.07% from 2017 to 2022. The growth of the market can be attributed to the rising number of deep-water offshore oil & gas production activities and increasing maritime security threats. Government organizations and private agencies across the globe have been investing in the development and manufacturing of advanced UUVs”

OUR STRATEGY = Comprehensive data collection services
The NOA Marine team is improving the technology consisting of an autonomous swarm of unmanned vehicles, which, left in a given area, will perform autonomous exploration and supervision without any human intervention. Thanks to our floating docking stations, our innovative vehicles will be able to work autonomously in the sea without any human intervention for up to 6 months. Right after the vehicle is automatically moored to the docking station, will send the collected data (chemical, geological, seismic, acoustic, visual) directly to the client's desk, at the same time filling its batteries with energy generated from the sun and wind. We aim with our remote exploration technology to be compatible with at least two major broadband satellite data transfer providers.
We have developed our business expansion strategy as B2B and B2G Robotics as a Service model (RaaS) and we will enable our future partners to gather data for their future clients faster and save money at the same time. NOA Marine positions itself as AUV drone Subcontractor with direct B2B partnerships with Vendors (the companies servicing the given investment / bidding) and B2G institutions of coastal states.
Target areas of activity:
Oil & Gas = Automated & remote resource sensing and exploration, preparation of investments, subsea interventions.
Off-shore = Including energy, prior-investment activities and periodic automatic supervision.
Ocean Aquaculture = Supervision of farms environmental footprint
Scientific sector = Long endurance monitoring of ecosystems, automatic exploration and building of knowledge about Earth
