Gill Instruments onboard with the Mayflower Autonomous Ship

September 23rd, 2021 | Category: Applications & Case Studies

Accurate weather measurement for a fully-autonomous, AI-powered marine research vessel.

Launching from Plymouth, UK on 16 September 2020, the Mayflower will travel to Plymouth, Massachusetts, after spending six months gathering data about the state of the ocean. You can follow the full journey on the Promare and IBM’s interactive website,

The Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS) is a grass roots initiative led by marine research non-profit ProMare with support from IBM and partners which include Gill Instruments.

Gill instruments provided a Maximet GMX500 which is able to measure multiple parameters including wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, pressure and a GPS option.

GMX500 offers an extremely compact, robust and lightweight design as well as providing the accuracy required by scientists for measuring local weather parameters in the most demanding environments such as this. Read more on our Maximet range.
