Collecting ocean data used to mean having to send a vessel out with a crew which could be quite dangerous if conditions were rough, so the 'Saildrone' has been created to offer a new solution.

Developed as a cost-effective, autonomous solution for capturing ocean data, the unit could effectively replace existing ships to perform tasks and trips with ease. The drone travels at speeds between three and five knots, and can be reprogrammed in the middle of a mission in case something is discovered or a more important task comes up.

The 'Saildrone' could effectively transform the scientific process for professionals who are in charge of research to keep the focus on safety, efficiency and highly precise data.
