In the last 4 months, we’ve tested 6 models of turbines and 5 different propellers. This means 22 turbines and 15 propellers! Just to make it possible for Ziphius™ to cruise at 5.4 knots. 🙂
Choosing a name for our drone was not easy but with plenty of brainstorming we finally made a decision. Turns out choosing the name of the goose beaked whale – Ziphius Cavirostris – was a good match. At that time we did not know how similar they would look!
Like Ziphius Cavirostris, our drone is fast and can amaze you by playing in the water…
