Saildrone Webinar: An Autonomous Approach to Ocean Mapping

8610 Kennel Way La Jolla, CA 92037, US
Event Description: 
Join us Thursday, June 18, for the webinar, An Autonomous Approach to Ocean Mapping: A USM, Saildrone, and NOAA Collaboration
In 2019, Saildrone, the University of Southern Mississippi (USM), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Coast Survey began a collaboration to test the accuracy and longevity of the Saildrone platform for shallow-water multibeam bathymetry in an effort to develop new technologies to address gaps in ocean mapping and exploration in the US EEZ.
During this webinar, the project partners will discuss the origins of the project, the technology innovation and the achievements of the first year of collaboration, and a preview of future development plans.
