KONGSBERG has introduced a new student project called 'Zeppaloon' which provides students with the opportunity to resolve a complex technological task during the summer months of 2014.

The assignment for the 'Zeppaloon' project is to develop a scaled unmanned airship to simulate the dynamic positioning technology that KONGSBERG uses to operate offshore vessels in challenging conditions.

The challenge involves developing a prototype with sub systems such as; software, sensors and reference systems, thruster and power management and control algorithms. The prototype must be able to operate in the same challenging conditions that KONGSBERG systems are exposed to every day.

Through the design, development and test phases, students are guided by highly skilled and experienced engineers from the company. The 'Zeppaloon' project will continue throughout the year, through student theses and scientific research.

"This is a great opportunity for students to familiarize themselves with KONGSBERG as a company while having a challenging summer and gaining valuable experience. Our previous summer projects have been very popular, and we hope 'Zeppaloon' will be just as successful. We look forward to welcoming talented young applicants into the program," comments Wenche Moen, HR advisor.
