Maarten Ruyssenaers

Manifesting smart and clean solutions, in co-creation with various fields of expertise, is a powerful process.

Mark Pronk

Business Developer

From a young age I was fascinated by the sea and ocean. This resulted in sailing for 10 years as a crew member on Tall Ships. Technology attracted me and ocean technology was a great fit. Over the last 16 year I have been active in the ocean technology environment and have seen automation grown to a higher level. This automation opens a world of new opportunities for mankind to learn about our oceans and understand the impact. Unmanned Surface Vehicles play a significant role in the future exploration of our oceans. Having worked for international companies such as Teledyne CARIS, Eiva and Geomares I would like to apply my commercial and hydrographic knowledge and help to pursue the vision of Aquatic Drones.

Syl Delissen

Innovation Manager & Brand Strategist

Though I’m broadly educated, my focus has always been on creativity and strategy. I started as a product designer, but along the way I got more and more interested in the processes around creation and creativity. For almost ten years now, I work with startups and small businesses as a brand strategist. Alongside, I work for Hogeschool Rotterdam (Communication & Multimedia Design); teaching skills like concept development and creative research. When I heard there was a position as innovation manager at Aquatic Drones, I did not hesitate for a moment and applied; I already knew AD does not only work on innovations in the technical field, but also in their business and project development. Being in dept involved with Aquatic Drones gives me the opportunity to combine my interests in startups, design thinking, brand strategy and my warm heart for the environment all together.

Job van Beem

Project & Water Engineer

"Actively contribute to technological developments is something which inspires me and above all motivates me. Aqautic Drones provides me the opportunity to convert my passion into my profession while I can convert my (technical) knowledge into practical solutions. I have a theoretical background in the morphodynamics of sandy beaches and rivers and have been educated to work in multi-disciplinary projects. Personally I believe that technology is capable of changing the world on a positive manner. Not only can autonomic drones be of great use in potential dangerous environments, they also can provide new insights due to the efficiency of otherwise extremely time consuming monitoring campaigns. Knowing that I am part of a company which endeavours the use of technology to make an beneficial impact on society is something that really drives me. "
