Maarten Ruyssenaers

Founder & CEO

Manifesting smart and clean solutions, in co-creation with various fields of expertise, is a powerful process. Persistence, joy, and passion are all required in order to make the biggest impact on people, the planet, and society. I have managed many different technological innovation projects from start until finish, including reliable operations. Such projects have been small and dynamic as well as large programs that span multiple years that have been aimed at product development in the fields of maritime robotics, sensing, and information technology.

David Fortini

IT Advisor

I believe that technology is a mean to improve our world and facilitate our lives. That is why when I heard about Aquatic Drones I was really interested in how I could give my contribution to such a great start-up. Luckily the combination of business and IT knowledge have allowed me to help Aquatic Drones grow. So far I could participate in different exciting projects giving advice, especially in the field of data processing and analysis. In this way, I can contribute to the journey of Aquatic Drones doing what I like the most while making a positive impact on society.

Rick Molenaar

Chief Technology Officer

I grew up with ships and lived near the ocean in Zeeland. Sailing and being one with nature is in my blood. When I met Aquatic Drones, I knew getting involved was my purpose. My passion is solving complicated challenges by learning and optimizing continuously. Being driven by and seeing endless possibilities, combined with the urge to create, I start-up innovations in technology that lead to a cleaner world and a better life on this planet. I want to make a difference for this world. Good is not good enough. It needs to be perfect and, luckily, I have large amounts of energy to make it so.  This means that I focus that energy on developing effective and efficient sustainable systems to take care of health, well-being and increased safety.
