SphyrnaALV constellation

Large Autonomous Laboratory Vessel to collect oceanic mega-data

  • World Alliance Member
  • Featured Solution
  • Labelled Solution
Label Date November 9, 2020
From France
Maturity stage TRL 9 / CRI 2 - Commercial Trial Small Scale

Today, oceanographic data is mostly collected in 3 different ways: via scientific exploration vessels, drifting buoys or satellites. These 3 complementary solutions to each other, each have their limits; the high operational cost and therefore the parsimony of deployment of scientific exploration vessels thus limited in time and in the marine space, an exploration area constrained by drifting buoys because of their dependence on sea currents as at their source d energy conditioning their lifespan, visibility limited to a few meters deep and data based mainly on optical or altimetric technologies for satellites. SphyrnaALVs can carry up to a ton of measuring equipment. They make possible to collect no less than 50 different types of data, transmitted in real time, for a cost divided by 50 compared to “classic” scientific vessels.
