Understanding planetary systems affecting humanity
The first autonomous circumnavigation of Antarctica
Mission-as-a-Service: Define your mission, stream real-time data
Data-as-a-Service: Real-time access to quality-controlled datasets
Because better data means a better forecast
We offer fully managed ocean data collection services anywhere in the world. You define a mission plan; our autonomous ocean drones get to work and stream real-time data back to shore.
We offer quality controlled on-demand global ocean in-situ data sets for your area, timeframe, and variables of interest at an unprecedented resolution in a NetCDF-compliant format.
We offer high-resolution weather forecasts, enhanced by our global ocean drone observations, delivered via beautiful and informative appsavailable on both web and mobile.
Take a peek at our latest missions, data sets, and forecast developments.
Saildrone-ship-buoy comparisons were a key objective during NASA’s SPURS-2 field campaign, as highlighted by a paper published in a special issue of Oceanography.
Saildrone USVs have completed a series of missions to test the platform as part of the Tropical Pacific Observation System monitoring El Niño weather events in the Pacific Ocean.
The Saildrone USV equipped with a ROW sensor is the first platform capable of long-range autonomous oil spill detection in marine environments.
Saildrone designs, manufactures, and operates a global fleet of wind and solar powered ocean drones, providing in-situ data collection services, global ocean data sets, and enhanced weather forecast applications.
