"Friend of the Brazilian Navy" medal
In 2022, the CEO and co-founder of TideWise, Rafael Coelho, won the "Friend of the Brazilian Navy" Medal for the year 2021. The medal was created to award personalities and institutions that have distinguished themselves in the dissemination of the maritime mentality and contributions to the Brazil's navy. Among Rafael's main contributions to the Navy is his collaboration in the development of the first Provisional Regulation for the Operation of Autonomous Vessels, issued in 2020 by the DPC.
Unprecedented proof-of-concept operation in Belgium
Between May and June 2022, the TideWise team went to Belgium to carry out a proof-of-concept operation derived from the Elia Group Open Innovation Challenge 2021 Award, which consisted of inspecting infrastructure in an offshore wind complex using an uncrewed robotic system composed of a drone integrated with the USV Tupan. This operation was unprecedented worldwide, and represented a great advance for Brazilian technology in the field of unmanned systems. Another milestone achieved in this operation was that TideWise became the first Brazilian company operating autonomous vessels to operate outside Brazil and, in particular, in the North Sea.
