Ocean data platform for science research, sustainable fisheries management, and weather forecasting, powered by a fleet of unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) called saildrones.

Saildrone designs and manufactures wind and solar powered autonomous surface vehicles called Saildrones, which make cost-effective ocean data collection possible at scale. They believe that better inputs in planetary models in turn yield better outputs and that the new insights gained in weather forecasting, carbon cycling, global fishing and climate change will have tremendous impact on humanity. Saildrone's Mission-as-a-Service provides users with a dedicated fleet of USVs to cost-effectively collect scientifically validated oceanic and atmospheric observations over extensive areas and extended periods of time.
