Saildrone Hurricane Monitoring 2021 NRT data, drone 1040


Five Gen6 Saildrone Explorer USVs were launched in the Atlantic Ocean for the duration of the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season. These USVs were equipped with a 'hurricane wing' designed specifically to withstand hurricane-strength winds and waves. The five objectives of this mission include (1) advancing the CONOPS of steering and operating USVs towards strong low-pressure systems, (2) coordinating with underwater gliders, (3) developing CONOPS for coordinating with UAVs, (4) developing CONOPS for using multiple USVs to observe the air-sea interface ahead, inside and behind hurricanes, and (5) provision of real-time data for ingestion to Global Telecommunications System (GTS) and reception by operational data assimilation and forecast systems.
