About Open Ocean Robotics

Operating on the ocean around the world from Victoria BC, Open Ocean Robotics (OOR) is a growing startup transforming how we understand our oceans through better data. We are leaders in solar-powered Uncrewed Surface Vehicles (USVs) that voyage inhospitable ocean environments autonomously for extended missions. Combined with advanced sensors and data analytics, producing no greenhouse gases or risk of oil spills, our USVs offer a safer, more effective and affordable way to gain ocean insights. We are transforming how we study, protect and use our oceans, and are driven by a pioneering spirit to push boundaries and make the seemingly impossible possible.
