Bringing the Tech to Ocean Protection
Unmanned technologies can provide cost effective solutions to a variety of resource challenges affecting our coastal and marine environment. Oceans Unmanned facilitates the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to respond to emergencies including oil spills, vessel groundings, and large whale entanglement. Unmanned Surface Vehicles (USV) can cost effectively provide long term monitoring of remote Marine Protected Areas to prevent illegal discharges and fishing. These systems can provide resource agencies new tools to monitor the marine environment and Oceans Unmanned will facilitate their responsible use by partnering with NGOs, technology companies, and resource protection and response agencies.
