AutoNaut Proves Herself in Atlantic Storm

  22/10/2014

David Maclean, Director of MOST (Autonomous Vessels) Ltd which produces the AutoNaut, considered this mission to be a major test for AutoNaut. To have delivered on time, on budget and to a very tight schedule; and for the unmanned surface vessel (USV) to have gone straight out into the Atlantic and carried out her programme through a gale and a storm is, according to him, a really solid achievement. »»
