What is our project?
Our current project is to build an unmanned research vessel to cross the Atlantic Ocean. The 5 meter ship will be driven by electricity from solar panels, making her energy self-sustainable. In August 2019, the vessel will be the first to cross the Atlantic Ocean autonomously, traveling from St. John’s in Newfoundland to Ireland. After the Transatlantic crossing, we will draw on our experience to optimize the vessel for autonomous marine research.
