The Mayflower Autonomous Ship project, initiated in 2019, spearheaded the development of an innovative autonomous vessel, mirroring the historic journey of the original Mayflower. Collaborating with ProMare, IBM, and various industry and academic partners, MAS400 completed the crossing of the Atlantic Ocean autonomously, leveraging cutting-edge AI and sensor systems. Beyond navigation, it collects vital oceanographic data, contributing to climate research and marine conservation efforts. Additionally, the project fosters public engagement and education while paying homage to maritime history. By uniting diverse expertise, it exemplifies technological innovation and interdisciplinary collaboration. Visit link below¬†for updates on the project’s milestones and future endeavors.

lake hornindal

Norway’s deep lakes, sculpted by the Ice Age, conceal significant geological and biological mysteries. Promare and Sperre AS explored the depths of Europe’s deepest lake, Hornindalsvatnet, unveiling an unprecedented find: a novel species of Arctic charr. Discovered during the first-ever dive to the lake’s bottom using an ROV, these white fish exhibit distinctive features and genetic traits, suggesting post-glacial evolution. The Norwegian Institute for Nature Research confirmed the species’ uniqueness, highlighting the lake’s role as a breeding ground for distinct Arctic charr communities. Click here for more…

puerto rico trench

In 2012, ProMare achieved a groundbreaking milestone as their prototype robotic vehicle descended into the depths of the Atlantic Ocean for the first time. The expedition yielded remarkable video footage and the recovery of unprecedented marine life from the ocean’s deepest recesses. This pioneering feat demonstrated the feasibility of exploring the deepest oceanic realms at a relatively low cost. Located approximately 500 miles long and 26,000 feet deep, the Puerto Rico Trench, the deepest part of the Atlantic Ocean, served as the backdrop for this historic mission.
