Following deployment from offshore of Telde, Gran Canaria the ASVs will transit to the test sites by harnessing wave energy as the form of propulsion. Test data will be transferred from the moorings and relayed to shore by satellite communications. On successful completion of the data transfers the ASVs will progress towards the EBHi mooring site (in international waters south west of the Canary Islands) to test the long-term performance of the wave-powered propulsion, before returning to offshore of Telde, Gran Canaria for recovery to shore.
