A cutting-edge marine vessel that can sail the high seas without a crew will be manufactured exclusively in Mobile through a partnership between Austal USA and California-based Saildrone Inc.
The two companies on Tuesday announced their strategic partnership in connection with the Saildrone Surveyor autonomous “uncrewed” surface vehicle.
The partnership “combines Saildrone’s … technology with Austal USA’s advanced manufacturing capabilities,” according to a news release issued by the companies. The companies said the partnership will provide the U.S. Navy and other government agency customers “a cutting-edge solution for maritime domain awareness, hydrographic survey and other missions requiring persistent wide area coverage.”
