HyperKelp Update: December 8, 2022

Graeme Rae for HyperKelp Inc

We build hosted payload smart-buoys that collect, process, and transmit data from the ocean surface.

CEO’s Corner: At the end of this year, with some time to reflect, it is remarkable how far we have come in such a short time. We are incredibly grateful to each and every one of you for all of your support – it truly means the world to us.

Our aim is solid, and our mission is clear; to make the world a cleaner, safer place using ocean data to protect our world and way of life. This is a journey we are all on and can be a part of. Whether we are providing feedback to shipping companies to lower the cost of goods, providing data for research scientists to help clean up the oceans, or providing critical information for our military to identify and respond to threats in a timely manner – ocean data and communication are essential.

Our nation’s leaders made a bold and vital decision to create pathways between the innovations of the private sector and our strong military capabilities. Thanks to these efforts and the massive investments behind them, we are creating the most potent intersection between novel, cutting-edge technologies and the defense establishment to ensure that we protect our way of life for generations to come. We are proud to be a part of the future of our country.

I can honestly say, with confidence, that space technology is the next frontier. So if you would like to support HyperKelp and other companies that are making a difference, please take a minute to learn how you can help through our crowdfunding raise on Spaced Ventures.

Happy Holidays!!

️ AnnouncementsWe hosted a visit from the Office of Naval Research Global (ONR_G) Demonstration and Assessment Team (DAT). Here, Costas explains how our detection system classifies and alerts on various airborne missile threats and how we are integrating our data into the 2023 Technology Operational Experimentation Exercise at Camp LeJeune.

The last month has been a whirlwind of presentations and conferences. The two key ones were BlueTech Week in San Diego and Crowdfunding week in .A, where we got to exhibit our new Sonobuoy product and meet our colleagues at Spaced Ventures in person.
