Wind and Solar-Powered Freedom to Go Further and Faster

A unique autonomous maritime technology that harnesses constant and renewable natural energy.

The combined surface and subsurface capability of Ocean Aero’s vehicles represents a new level of ocean autonomy, survivability, and self-sufficiency.

Solar rechargeable lithium batteries power a payload large enough for a full range of sensor systems. With the combination of wind and solar power, the vehicle can be in service for months at sea.

The technology has the added versatility of underwater capability. The wingsail folds and retracts allowing the vehicle to quickly submerge to evade detection and severe weather conditions as well as perform subsurface data collection tasks.

Practical and easy to transport from land, sea or air, Ocean Aero vehicles have the power and payload for a wide range of sensors systems. With a sizeable (and scalable) 23kg payload area, the vehicle can transport and power up systems with 50 watts of continuous solar rechargeable battery power.
