When deployed, the patented hard solar sail harnesses both solar and wind energy. When not desired it automatically folds snuggly into the deck of the Bluebottle
The patented rudder-flipper steers, guides and powers the unmanned vessel generating forward thrust from the pitching of the vessel in the waves of the ocean.
Sensors and Communication
Multiple sensors are available as options underwater, inside the hull and on the aft comms mast. An Integrated and networked communication system allows live tracking.
Keel Winch Cassette
The patented ‘keel winch’ is a cassette that displaces water ballast in the keel - so adding or changing a cassette does not interfere with the displacement or trim of the Bluebottle.
