The Open_Sailing project aims to provide a stable infrastructure for ocean research, developing technologies that will impact our lives on land as well as the ocean.

Current research projects include Energy_Animal (developed with ESPRC/RCA), a floating sustainable electrical generator that creates power regardless of weather conditions from waves, wind and sun; Life_Cable, a unified cable for any inhabited structure needs; and a fleet of oil collecting robots to aid the cleaning of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
