After the mission concludes, Saildrone will handle vehicle retrieval and logistics. Our experienced ocean data research team can then process the data and deliver comprehensive data packages to our clients.

Client Stories

Discover how Saildrone technology is used to economically collect high-resolution deep sea bathymetry data in a range of ocean environments.

The data quality from the surveyor is of very high quality, and as good as anything we have seen from a ship. Due to the wind-powered nature of the vehicle, it is very quiet, and this enables the very accurate acoustic measurements needed to map to these depths.”

Director of UNH Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping (CCOM)

The completion of the summer mapping mission using saildrones is an achievement for all involved. This mission lays the groundwork for future mapping operations in not only the Arctic but other remote locations.”
