This course will be managed by both ENSTA ParisTech, with a long tradition in engineering and maritime engineering design, and ENSM, heir to Colbert’s Hydrography Academies, which has trained merchant navy officers for centuries.
The aim of the course is to provide the students with a double competence in mechanics and IT so that they can become the referents, understanding the ins and outs of ongoing programmes on autonomous maritime systems. This basic training will be supplemented by notions in advanced system engineering, operation, laws and regulations and strategy and innovation, in order to complete the knowledge with an operational approach. The partnership between ENSTA ParisTech and ENSM will enable the combination of a great technical competence for the jobs functions in order to train versatile profiles specializing in autonomous systems.
The companies from the maritime sector developing autonomous technologies and interested in this kind of profile are part of the oil and oil-related industry (Technip FMC, Saipem, Doris Engineering, d2m, …) the marine energies sector (Woodgroup Kenny, Principle Power, EOLFI, …), large groups of the shipbuilding sector (Naval Group, STX, …), classification (Bureau Veritas, DNV-GL)and shipping companies. The size of the recruiters is very variable, from very large groups (Technip FMC, Naval Group, STX, …) to small and medium-sized companies engaged in niche sectors for autonomous maritime systems (SubseaTech, iXBlue, Sofresud, COMEX, AlseaMar, …) used for surveying, maintenance, mapping, data collection in a broad sense.
1. Design in a marine environment : hydromechanics basis required to design autonomous maritime systems (naval hydrodynamics, seaworthiness, stability, propulsion and manoeuvrability, systems engineering, underwater robotics).
2. Decision-making autonomy and cyber-security : system control, mobile robots navigation, architecture of information systems and cyber-security.
3. Operation of autonomous systems : advantages and constraints, missions previously undertaken by autonomous systems, perspectives and future-oriented autonomy in marine engineering
4. Regulation, strategy and innovation : international, European and domestic maritime regulations, industrial and innovation economy, applied to the maritime sector and to autonomous systems
Language of instruction : the lectures will be delivered in English.
