Missions

Two autonomous wind-powered vehicles sailed from Cabo Verde to Trieste, Italy, demonstrating how fit-for-purpose technology can be used to increase ocean observation.

Science

Data collected by two saildrones and a subsurface glider along a transect between Italy and Croatia will be intercompared with that of the E2M3A ocean station.

Science

As part of the Atlantic to Mediterranean mission, two saildrones studied CO2 air-sea fluxes due to volcanic activity in the vicinity of the Aeolian Islands.

Data

To establish confidence in Saildrone fit for purpose data, we have sought out and developed relationships with recognized experts in the fields of meteorology and oceanography.

Science

Two saildrones and an underwater glider traveled the Nice-Calvi line to study air-sea carbon flux and demonstrate the potential of autonomous vehicles to extend the capability of fixed-point observatories and remote sensing.

Technology

Saildrone USVs have proven to be a valuable tool in a multiplatform observation network, but they can also achieve a variety of mission objectives simultaneously, saving money and resources.

Data

The Saildrone Data Explorer is designed to make Saildrone data easy to find, download, and use for scientific and educational purposes.

Science

The Canary Islands’ ESTOC site is one of nine fixed ocean stations in the Atlantic and Mediterranean where saildrones will collect in situ measurements for cross-calibration and validation.

Science

Quantifying air-sea interaction is key to improving weather prediction.

Science

Two Saildrone USVs will collect in situ measurements at nine fixed ocean stations in the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea for cross-calibration and validation.

Missions

The 5th annual Arctic mission, in partnership with NOAA and NASA, took a fleet of saildrones to a new frontier—the Arctic ice edge—to improve sea ice prediction and satellite algorithm development.

Science

Saildrone Chief Scientist Dr. Eric Lindstrom offers a perspective on the future of physical oceanography and ocean observation over the next decade.

Missions

Two Saildrone USVs are sailing from Cabo Verde to Trieste, Italy on a six-month mission to better understand ocean acidification, the global carbon budget, and the socio-economic impacts of a changing ocean ecosystem.

Missions

SD 1020 survived freezing temperatures, 15-meter waves, 130 km/h winds, and collisions with giant icebergs to complete the 22,000-kilometer mission in 196 days.

Science

Wind and solar-powered autonomous vehicles are helping scientists to answer previously unanswerable questions about Earth’s oceans.

Missions

Six saildrones were deployed from Dutch Harbor, AK, to survey ongoing changes in the Arctic ecosystem in partnership with NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Lab and Alaska Fisheries Science Center and NASA.

Science

Saildrone has partnered with the 1851 Trust to develop a series of data-driven lesson plans on issues related to the 2019 Antarctic Circumnavigation, free for teachers and educators.

Missions

A flotilla of saildrones established a new northern record for an autonomous vehicle while measuring CO2 and Arctic cod abundance in the Chukchi Sea.

Science

The Southern Ocean is critical for controlling how much CO2 is in the atmosphere, but as the water absorbs more carbon it becomes more acidic—and that could affect the health of a lot of organisms.

Science

Just how variable is CO2 uptake in the Southern Ocean in winter?

Missions

This 30-day mission to study air-sea heat and carbon exchange in the Gulf Stream is made possible by a Saildrone Award.

Science

The Saildrone Award provides researchers with 30 days of ocean data collection for an innovative research project.

Company

Today we are announcing an important development: Sending our first fleet of saildrones into the Southern Ocean, in partnership with CSIRO, Australia’s pre-eminent national science organization.
