a fleet of robot cleaners dictates a reliable and secure means of
communicating between the operators/owners and the individual drones. Each
drone feeds information of plastic soup density to a common source that
shares data to best achieve ocean cleanups. Global low cost satellite
coverage is essential to ensure successful missions, day in day out. BMS
are looking to collaborate with communications companies, ship builders,
solar and wind generating companies - in the quest to make this happen.
Several of these cleaners operating as Atlantic, Indian and Pacific
ocean fleets could make such
conservation measures cost effective, and even potentially attractive to
governments around the world - for the health of the world.
plastic could be processed to produce oil, energy or recycled products.
Better than letting fish and seabirds eat the waste and kill themselves, and
who knows how that may affect us, where seafood is an essential resource for
mankind and toxins in the food chain are cumulative.
