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.
Tom Foldesi, formerly of DataStax and Defense Innovation Unit, brings 25 years of experience in strategic business development and sales.
AIP, an important first step to full classification of a new maritime vehicle, was awarded to the Saildrone Voyager and Saildrone Surveyor.
Saildrone and Seabed 2030 will work together to leverage technological innovation to more quickly and efficiently collect ocean mapping data and make it freely available to all.
The 65-foot Surveyor is designed for deep ocean mapping and maritime security missions.
The 33-foot Saildrone Voyager is designed for near-shore bathymetry and maritime security missions.
The Saildrone Surveyor, the world’s largest uncrewed ocean mapping vehicle, has mapped more than 45,000 square kilometers (17,375 square miles) of previously unexplored ocean floor during a months-long survey around Alaska’s Aleutian Islands and off the coast of California.
Saildrone’s uncrewed vehicles are a long-endurance and environmentally friendly solution for persistent maritime security.
The Timmy Awards recognize North America’s best tech companies and people.
Mark Cuyler, formerly of Amazon Last Mile, joins Saildrone as Chief Operating Officer.
The award is one of five new projects to receive a total of $3.5 million for ocean co-use and transmission.
