Innovation: dstelecom is present at the opening of the 1st Free Technological Zone in Portugal

At dstelecom, innovating is one of the characteristics that accompany our daily lives. We look at market demands and see in them challenges capable of opening borders and transporting us to higher levels of excellence. We are committed to innovation to create new products and/or services that are catalysts for economic, social and environmental sustainability.

And it was with this in mind that on the 19th of July dstelecom was in Troia at the inauguration of the first Portuguese Free Technological Zone (ZLT) to present its interest in using this ZLT to experiment with the results of the research of the K2D project.

Also known as Infante D. Henrique, this zone was promoted by the Portuguese Navy and aims to be a field of experimentation for unmanned security and defense systems and other technologies in subsurface, land surface, wet and air environments.

This Navy ZLT will occupy an area of ​​over 1,000 square miles, covering part of the municipalities of Sesimbra, Setúbal and Grândola, and will be monitored from the Navy's Operational Experimentation Center (CEOM), in Troia.

We remind you that dstelecom is the leader of the KD2 consortium and that this research project has as main objective to develop a system for monitoring vital data from the land, at the bottom of the sea. To this end, we intend to increase the added value of submarine cables, converting them not only into data highways, but also adding surveillance capacity by associating a sensing layer to these elements that are housed on the ocean floor.
