Interview

Can you tell us something about Martek Aviation?

‘Martek Marine has built its legacy on a foundation of safety; providing shipping and crews with
safety systems, medical equipment and ultimately an increase in performance. With a strong moral
component in Martek’s approach, we have established ourselves as a friend of the environment;
giving cleaner fuel and anti-pollution measures to shipping.’

What are your biggest technological challenges at the moment?

‘One of the most common complaints from businesses and industry I hear is that there is a lot of “tech push” being forced on them. Amazing technological solutions trying to find “a home”; questions that have not yet been asked, problems that have not been realised. This can tune people out to the world of technological innovation in their attempts to find answers to the problems that businesses really do face.’

What do you hope people will learn from your presentation at TUS Nordics?

‘Martek Aviation is not trying to change the world, or make a brave new world using drones. Our mission is to pioneer best in world maritime UAS applications. We are a service provider and, as such, are commited to leading the revolution of aviaition service provision.’

What presentation do you hope to give in 5 years?

‘I’d like to show that:
• Martek Aviation is saving the lives of people in every continent
• Protecting against and countering pollution incidents in all our oceans
• Preventing unnecessary risk exposure to aircrew

Through the application of truly best in world UAS service provision.’
