The first atlantic crossing by an unmanned surface vehicle.

The SB Met has made it across and we are very proud of her. She is the first ever unmanned surface vehicle to complete an Atlantic crossing. After 80 days at sea she has finally arrived at the finish line. Deployed in Newfoundland, she has travelled to Ireland sailing a total of 5100 km to cover the 3000 km stretch.
