Data Xplorer - A solar-powered autonomous boat that travels our oceans for months at a time, allowing more affordable, sustainable and safer ocean data collection.
It is expensive, unsustainable and dangerous to research and monitor oceans and marine environments, yet that information is critical to protecting and understanding the ocean as well as the profitability of the $2.5 trillion marine industry. Data Xplorer is a solar-powered ocean drone, also known as an uncrewed surface vehicle (USV). Powered only by the sun, it can travel on the ocean for months at a time collecting ocean and environmental data using its suite of modular sensors. It sends the data back in real-time through secure communication systems and clients can control the USV from anywhere in the world using our user portal. Capable of traveling both in coastal waters and on the open ocean, and with a customizable platform for multiple sensor integration, it offers the ability to understand our oceans in an entirely new way. Utilizing this technology, Open Ocean Robotics provides specific services in seafloor mapping, marine mammal detection and enforcement against illegal fishing.
