This virtual event is a culmination of a 3-months startups challenge carried out for our distinguished partner - thyssenkrupp Marine Systems (tkMS) and ATLAS ELEKTRONIK (a maritime technology company owned by tkMS).
The call for startups to apply for a "Maritime Autonomous Systems Challenge" was launched on June 2020, seeking innovative technologies and solutions in the area of unmanned and autonomous systems (for more details about the process and challenges- https://www.thedockinnovation.com/autonomous).
After evaluating almost 100 startups applying from Israel and around the globe, tkMS and ATLAS challenge experts have chosen the 8 finalists that will showcase their solution and its applicable use case at this culminating virtual event. During the event we will announce the 2-3 selected startups that will be invited to ATLAS' headquarters for a pilot project evaluation.
