Leading-edge Technology for Maritime Exploration

Data quality is paramount at Saildrone. In close collaboration with our partners, we established a robust and transparent data chain of custody from raw observations to the real-time and final data we distribute. Our CF-compliant metadata describes in detail all procedures undertaken to meet the highest level of scientific standards.


Multiple years of at-sea comparisons correlating Saildrone data with the established standards have established scientific confidence in our measurements and sampling protocols.


The Saildrone platform carries a flexible array of sensors to capture critical data for a variety of use cases, delivered via web portal or Open API.
