How it Works

A complete system for autonomous observation, data collection, and reconnaissance

High level

The boat is electric: it gets energy from the sun, and stores it in large batteries, enabling it to operate through varying weather conditions. The boat is autonomous: it runs programmed missions that can last from several hours up to several months. It normally makes decisions on its own, but it supports “person in-the-loop” and can be remotely controlled. Missions can be easily changed on the fly.


The base package includes several wireless links for basic inshore and offshore operations. Additional options are available to satisfy a variety of control and data requirements.


The boat is designed to operate in a wide range of conditions, from shallow embayments with significant current, out to the open ocean.
