SeaRAY autonomous offshore power system for resident vehicles, sensor packages, and operating equipment (50 watts to 20 kWs)
Initially conceived during a U.S. Department of Defense project, the SeaRAY autonomous offshore power system provides in-situ power, energy storage, and real-time data and communications support that will advance the marine economy toward a future of autonomous, connected and resident technologies. It is designed to support unmanned offshore activities and equipment, including subsea vehicles, sensor packages, and operating equipment. When deployed, the SeaRAY significantly lowers costs and carbon emissions, reduces operational complexity, increases safety, and enables capabilities not available today.
The AOPS’ power capacity is easily scalable from <1 kW to 20 kW. It is transportable anywhere in the world in standard ocean containers and deployable with smaller, lightly-crewed vessels. The system supports a wide range of potential applications that will spur innovation in critical industries such as defense and security, offshore energy, aquaculture, and science and research.
