Resumen:  The oceans affect the fundamental processes that drive our weather
and climate. Understanding these processes and how they impact the
exchange of energy and mass across the air-sea interface is crucial, but getting reliable and affordable data from remote parts of
the ocean has historically been difficult.
Working with governments and private companies around the globe,
Saildrone designs and manufactures wind and solar powered unmanned
surface vehicles (USVs) which make cost-effective ocean data collection possible at scale. Saildrones are instrumented with a full suite of ocean, meteorological, and fisheries acoustic instruments and have been successfully deployed for months in challenging regions of the global oceans.
Saildrone missions to date have included applications such as satellite calibration and improvement of El Niño predictions in the Tropical Pacific; oil seep detection and hypoxia studies in the Gulf of Mexico; fish stock assessment and marine mammal studies in the
Arctic; and tracking of tagged sharks in the Pacific Ocean.
In the face of ocean acidification and over-fishing, fisheries management is becoming even more important. Combining the air-sea sensor suite with the most advanced underwater acoustics, Saildrones can help create sustainable fisheries for future generations by improving our understanding of how the physical environment is affecting fisheries. These data provide a multi-trophic level, inter-disciplinary, basis to understanding bio-physical interactions.
Capable of missions lasting up to 12 months, Saildrones can maintain a permanent presence, enabling immediate response in an area that needs constant monitoring, or follow a set trajectory designed to measure specific processes or regions. Instrument sampling and pre-designed paths can be adjusted as situations or conditions change
through an Iridium satellite data link. Data is transmitted back to shore in real-time via satellite and delivered to through an API and provided through a web portal with capabilities of live data manipulation and visualization.
