The SubSeaSail™ Advantage

SSS has created and patented a new kind of sailing vessel having the hull and keel submerged under water propelled by a wind-catching assembly. A passive wing control mechanism enables automatic, un-powered sail or wing control in an autonomous sailing vessel. 

SSS is looking for clients for its standardized Gen6 vessel. It is also looking for clients with specific sensor and payload packages that will help fund unique sizes and fitted vessels.

Design features:

  • Deployable singly or in swarms

  • Energy harvesting (wind driven with solar power)

  • Fully submergible

  • Long-term deployable (months)

  • Low cost

  • Low observability

  • Multi-waypoints or station keeping

  • Scalable design from sub-1 meter to very large

  • Very quiet
