Changing the game in data collection.
Oshen is a start-up that aims to use autonomous micro-vessels for en-masse ocean data collection. We want to fill in the areas of the ocean where we have sparse data coverage. Our vessels are small and simple enough to be deployed en-masse, but smart enough to stay in position or track a desired path, giving high quality data.
Who are Oshen?
We've noticed that ocean data collection is extremely sparse and expensive. We want to change that.
Oshen make fully autonomous, wind-driven, robotic vessels for remote ocean sensing. Just 4ft in length, our design resembles a miniature sailboat. The small size keeps unit costs low and allows vessels to be deployed en-masse, providing a sensor network for continuous monitoring of waves and weather across our oceans.

What data do we collect?
Wide-scale low cost ocean surveying techniques don't exist yet, and this is what Oshen could achieve through the collection of the following data:
