Drone to survey Danish maritime

 

The EU Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) is assisting Denmark’s customs and navy in monitoring North Sea waters with a drone.

EMSA has begun a four-month deployment of a “Remotely Piloted Aircraft System” (RPAS) to support the Royal Danish Navy and Danish customs.

The new service features a hybrid quadcopter capable of vertical take-off and landing, marking its first use in an EMSA mission.
