The Mayflower Autonomous Ship Project

Mayflower Autonomous Ship Begins Fall Schedule

On 7 September 2021, Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS) was re-launched to resume its testing and scientific research schedule. Science teams associated with the equipment installed on MAS will continue collecting and analyzing data in order to establish the methodology of using autonomous platforms for oceanographic surveys and research. Updates will be published here and via the ship's social media accounts. Camera and data feeds will be turned back on for the cruises along the UK coast planned for Autumn and Winter. The next attempt for the Atlantic Crossing is planned for Spring 2022.
