OceanAlpha makes unmanned surface vessels (USVs) for water quality professionals that sample, monitor, or survey large areas of water surfaces. Traditional methods require at least two technicians in a full-sized boat, going from site to site to collect samples or make measurements. The use of a USV reduces the amount of time, labor and equipment needed to collect water quality data when compared to traditional methods. Agencies have seen more than 6x more improvements in efficiency, while simultaneously reducing risk by keeping technicians and full-sized vessels on shore.
USV assists in polluted water management by autonomous water sampling and monitoring
