Missions

With upcoming ship-based surveys in Alaska canceled due to the global health crisis, NOAA Fisheries has turned to Saildrone to collect data to support the sustainable management of America’s largest fishery.

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

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

Technology

Saildrone USVs can not only significantly reduce the cost of ocean mapping at scale, but they can also more easily and efficiently reach the most remote corners of the ocean.

Data

Data from the First Saildrone Antarctic Circumnavigation has been released to the global scientific community on Saildrone’s new data portal, data.saildrone.com, a repository of high-resolution in-situ observations collected by our global fleet of ocean drones.

Technology

A saildrone is an autonomous vehicle designed for up to 12-month ocean data collection missions to monitor the planet in real time.

Technology

Learn how wind and solar-powered saildrones are collecting data at sea in unprecedented detail.

Technology

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.
