Seafax Observational Vehicle

Seafax Observational Vehicle

Seafax began life in the imagination of a mechanical engineer with an interest in exploring the local marine environment. The original concept was for a multi-hull model boat in the region of six feet long capable of coping with substancial waves and currents while taking photographs and video for it's land-locked skipper.

The craft is to feature redundant propulsion methods in an attempt to achieve versatility and reliability, and house an on-board computer with satelite navigation and AX25 amateur radio communications equipment which would enable both autonomous operations and long distance remote control.

This site is a record of progress to date and is far from being complete but may contain ideas which could be useful to others with an interest in marine exploration or robotics.
