Technology

Saildrone has deployed a vehicle with a specially designed wing to chase hurricane-strength winter storms in the North Pacific.

Technology

The USCG is examining the feasibility, costs, and benefits of using low-cost autonomous vehicles to provide persistent maritime domain awareness in remote areas of the ocean.

Technology

Week 4: Saildrone is demonstrating how USVs could be a cost-effective solution for monitoring illegal fishing activity in remote areas of the ocean.

Technology

Week 3: We spoke to USCG Commander D. Blair Sweigart about the Coast Guard’s mission, how autonomy could improve mission performance, and Saildrone’s demonstration of MDA capabilities in Hawaii.

Technology

Week 2: The Saildrone MDA solution is made up of a specially built camera array and advanced onboard artificial intelligence and machine learning software.

Technology

Week 1: A fleet of six saildrones was launched from Honolulu to demonstrate how artificial intelligence and machine learning could be used to support the US Coast Guard mission.

Technology

Saildrone is using a specially built camera system and advanced acoustic technology combined with machine learning to identify activity at sea.

Missions

The 30-day mission supported by a Saildrone Award studies the behavior and environmental influencers of small fishes, squids, and crustaceans in the Clarion-Clipperton Zone.

Missions

The first partnership between Japan’s premiere marine-earth science agency and Saildrone included missions to the reference KEO offshore buoy, a study of the Kuroshio Current, and at the site of the Tropical Pacific m-Triton buoy.

Technology

Saildrone USVs are operated on a mission-as-a-service model and monitored from Saildrone Mission Control in Alameda, CA.

Science

Two Saildrone USVs participated in a multidisciplinary effort to understand why great white sharks swim more than 1,300 miles each year to an ocean desert in the North Pacific.

Technology

The Saildrone USV equipped with a ROW sensor is the first platform capable of long-range autonomous oil spill detection in marine environments.
