HyperKelp’s equity crowdfunding campaign ends on April 30th!



We are pleased to announce that HyperKelp was one of only twelve companies chosen for the 2023 NSIN Propel Hawaii Accelerator. We are currently working with the U.S. Navy Pacific Fleet (PACFLT) N6 and other U.S. Indo-Pacific Commands (INDOPACOM) to provide the military greater access to emerging defense technologies.

HyperKelp will help the DoD, U.S.Navy and its partners in the Pacific Region to develop commercial state-of-the-art technologies for modernization needs across four key technology focus areas: networks and connectivity, contested logistics, autonomous systems, and disaster response.

“This initiative allows the Department of the Navy, through the U.S. Pacific Fleet, the opportunity to leverage the skills and talent embedded across our industry partners and gives us the ability to find and actualize solutions to challenges we’re facing as we work to improve readiness and remain cutting edge in all our communications domains,” said CAPT Andre Wilson, Director Of Intelligence Innovation, PACFLT N2C.

NSIN (National Security Innovation Network) Propel Hawaii is a collaboration among NSINPACFLT N6NavalX Hawaii Tech Bridge, Hawaii Technology Development Corporation (HTDC), the University of Hawaii Office of Innovation and Commercialization, and Decisive Point.

As you know, HyperKelp is “dual-use”, meaning our tech serves customers equally well in and out of the Department of Defense. In recognition of this, we were invited to take part in the Fourth Wave of the Maritime Blue Accelerator Program. Maritime Blue and the new ventures in the program are all building incredible new tools to benefit maritime economies, healthy ocean ecosystems, and equitable & resilient communities. Take a look at our teammates – it’s exciting stuff:

Pat Sullivan has joined HyperKelp’s board of advisors to bring its Kelp Smart Buoy (KSB) and Ocean Data as a Service (ODaaS) Dashboard products to market in the US Department of Defense.

CEO Graeme Rae: “We are absolutely thrilled to have Pat on board – his depth of expertise and knowledge coupled with his extensive connections across all branches of the DoD make him a great resource for HyperKelp”

Sullivan served for nearly three decades as a Navy civilian culminating in his assignment as the Executive Director of the Naval Information Warfare Systems Command (NAVWAR), where he led a staff of over 11,000 employees delivering, operating, and maintaining advanced information technology, communications systems, and cyber solutions to US naval, joint, and national forces worldwide.

Sullivan joined HyperKelp to focus on growing its customer base across the US Federal government and specifically within the US Navy. Sullivan plans to help the team identify key mission areas where HyberKelp’s product and service offerings can make a significant contribution to national defense. Sullivan comments “I am excited to join the team at HyperKelp. Their innovative technology, open approach to hosted payloads, and focus on delivering Ocean Data as a Service will enable the Navy, the DoD, and the entire US Federal Government to make better decisions across a variety of missions and business applications.”
