Welcome at 3i
The European Interreg 2Seas 3i- project stimulates the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (uav’s) in the maritime environment. ‘3i’ is an acronym for Integrated Coastal Zone Management via Increased situational awareness through Innovations on Unmanned Aircraft Systems. In 3i-England, France, and The Netherlands combine research efforts into unmanned aerial vehicles for maritime applications.
"Passed the test!" With great enthusiasm, the first test flight of the prototype of the UAV of the 3i project was met. The aircraft has a length of 2.21 meters and a wingspan of up to 3.74 meters. The parts of the aircraft are manufactured by using 3D printing technology.
In the video the testflight which took place at Southampton, England.
