AM DEMAS : Program

The main objectives of the DEMAS training program is to give the technical, operational, regulatory and economic basis for the design and exploitation of maritime autonomous systems, in order to prepare specialists, able to evolve in this emerging sector. The courses are divided into four main skill axes that are respectively:

1. Design in maritime environment: hydromechanics basis for the design of autonomous maritime systems (naval hydrodynamics, seakeeping, stability, propulsion).

2. Decision-making autonomy and cyber-security: system command, navigation system for mobile robotics, architecture of information systems and cyber-security.

3. Exploitation of autonomous systems: pros and cons, missions of an autonomous system, past, present and future of autonomy, prospective views in emerging area.

4. Regulation, strategy and innovation: national, european and international maritime regulations, industrial and innovation economics applied to autonomous systems.
