After developed drones for Xprize Open Shell Discovery contest based on our Ducky19, we started new project based on smalest catamaran in our family Ducky13

Interesting. What information are you collecting besides bathymetry, and for what purpose? Autonomous or manual operation? Is the 13 outfitted with sails?

On Xprize project task for drone (D19) was to tug AUW to research area ( about 50 nm from a harbor, release it, support communication via satellite between AUW and shore command center when AUW makes precision bathymetry till 4000 v depth. Catch AUW when it appears on surface and bring it back to harbor. Everything autonomous.



For drone based on D13 current task is bathymetry shallow waters autonomously or manual if needs. But any type of electronics can be installed on this platform.


Here is a video of D13 under sail - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUtk...ature=emb_logo
