The American Bureau of Shipping issued the first-ever classification for a commercial autonomous, uncrewed vehicle to Saildrone for the 10-meter Voyager.
The accomplishment comes just 10 years after the first Saildrone USV crossed the Pacific Ocean and confirms Saildrone’s position as the only proven long-range, long-endurance uncrewed platform.
Saildrone’s passive acoustics array is designed to detect marine mammals like whales and dolphins to mitigate impacts on those species from human activities.
AIP, an important first step to full classification of a new maritime vehicle, was awarded to the Saildrone Voyager and Saildrone Surveyor.
The 33-foot Saildrone Voyager is designed for near-shore bathymetry and maritime security missions.
The award is one of five new projects to receive a total of $3.5 million for ocean co-use and transmission.
Offshore wind energy is a key element in reducing dependence on fossil fuels, but it’s important to understand the potential effects on marine mammals and the ocean ecosystem during and after development.
Detailed information about the coastal seafloor is essential to predicting destructive hurricane storm surge.
Presented by the Blue Marine Foundation and BOAT International, the Ocean Awards recognize groups and individuals making significant contributions to ocean conservation.
The Albert A. Michelson Award, presented at Sea Air Space 2022 by the Navy League of the United States, recognizes outstanding achievement by industry innovators and leaders.
Sulmara Subsea has ordered 10 Saildrone Voyagers to bring low-carbon USV-based survey and inspection to the global offshore energy sector.
The need for renewable energy sources is at an all-time high. Saildrone’s low-carbon, wind-powered ocean drones can help make new offshore wind farms a reality.
