At present, the ocean suffers greatly as a result of ever-growing population and disasters occur all over the world. A manoeuvrable ocean exploring monitoring system has been a state of the art subject for several years. The advancements in the field can be used in several market sectors and developed overtime. This system can be used for research and development purposes. The system can monitor oceans while maintaining the desired energy efficiency measures. Horizon Sail is developing an innovative rigid-wing for a sailboat likely to sail the oceans and capture data without human interaction. The product will be marketed on several platforms to be used widely in several industries. Many technical aspects still have to be studied and developed, especially regarding the boat that will be subjected to adverse climate conditions in unmanned areas and reducing the human assistance if damage occurs
