MAYFLOWER 400 PROJECT
MAS 400 - This 15 meter aluminium trimaran is packed full of sensors to monitor the oceans for plastic and climate change induced anomalies.
Continuing with my investigations into autonomous space travel, I found a project that is live, planned for next year by an amazing line up of scientists and engineering professionals, that I should like to share with you. The Mayflower project, named after the Pilgrims, Founding Fathers, are trying to navigate across the Atlantic Ocean in 2021 without any crew onboard.
As I am involved in the Elizabeth Swann project as a junior engineer, we (our team) should like to see the MAS400 team blaze an unmanned trail across the Atlantic. The Swann is also designed to do the same, but with Elizabeth, we are more concerned with speed, to prove that zero emission ocean transport is possible around 7-10 knots. Hence, we are approaching our project from a different angle.

Autonomy is vitally important. An important stepping stone to successful space missions, might be navigating our oceans autonomously. For that reason I am extremely interested in the Mayflower Autonomous Ship project: MAS400.
