Robotic sailboat makes useful oceanographic research tool

Parameters: Chlorophyll, CDOM, Turbidity

Navocean integrated a Turner Designs Cyclops Integrator configured with chlorophyll, CDOM, & turbidity optical sensors into one of their ASVs. Tested by Mote Marine Lab in nearshore waters off Punta Gorda, Florida, Navocean’s six meter sailboat hopes to provide shallow water capabilities that many larger robotic sailboats do not.
