Saildrone USVs enabled the Alaska Fisheries Science Center to perform the 2020 Alaska pollock survey during a time of considerable environmental and civic uncertainty.
Wind and solar-powered autonomous vehicles are helping scientists to answer previously unanswerable questions about Earth’s oceans.
A saildrone is an autonomous vehicle designed for up to 12-month ocean data collection missions to monitor the planet in real time.
Hint: A fleet of autonomous ocean drones collecting unprecedented amounts of data.
Learn how wind and solar-powered saildrones are collecting data at sea in unprecedented detail.
The saildrone's patented wing design enables the USV to cross oceans while only consuming a few watts of electricity—but the wing was originally born on land.
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.
