The Mission: Cross the Atlantic
Our goal is to be the first collegiate team to send an autonomous sub-2.4m vessel across the Atlantic Ocean. Our team has completed mission conceptualization, and we are currently working on prototyping.
Our vessel will consist of a monohull design sporting wingsail propulsion, powered by solar cells with LiFePO4 batteries. Some challenges we will face are design and implementation of our power system, communications, hull fabrication, wingsail and rudder fabrication, guidance and navigation, among others.
We are looking for new members who are interested in dedicating time to starting and working through a long-term project.
