TRL SEVEN - Level 7 Integrated pilot system demonstrated

Prototype is near, or at, planned operational system level. The final design is virtually complete. The goal of this stage is to remove engineering and manufacturing risk.

 

Once the Elizabeth Swann's hull has passed blue water sea trials with verification of the onboard solar energy harvesting automation, sun tracking and furling, battery charging, fuel cell operation, rudders, and pod thruster propulsion system, the vessel will be ready for a shakedown cruise.

 

 

 

 

 

 

SCALE - The TRL scale is a metric for describing the maturity of a technology. The acronym stands for Technology Readiness Level. The scale consists of 9 levels. Each level characterises the progress in the development of a technology, from the idea (level 1) to the full deployment of the product in the marketplace (level 9).
