Benefits of membership
Membership in NFAS contributes to more momentum in the development of autonomous ships as well as other autonomous and maritime applications of the technology. This includes technology, accept criteria, regulations and standards as well as building public support for these solutions. NFAS will also work to emphasize the importance of autonomous ship technology in national and international research strategies.
NFAS will be an information dissemination network for users, practitioners, authorities and others. This is intended to disseminate and develop new ideas as well as providing a discussion forum for finding good solutions to technical and operational problems.
Members of NFAS will also be able to participate in more formal working groups to undertake more specific tasks under the auspices of NFAS.
Finally, members will get exclusive invitations to closed workshops and seminars as well as discounts or free access to our larger conferences.
Statutes are only available in Norwegian (see Norwegian pages). Contact the manager if you have questions.
