This is currently unavailable, and this description is very generalized, not intended to be a complete detailed overview, but plans are being explored to allow interested parties the ability to create their own remote access ships to participate in cleaning up the ocean.
Some of the associated details of this plan include allowing independent vessel owners the ability to profit from collecting the material and depositing the material into collection areas.
It might be worth it to people doing voucher expeditions to buy pre-collected plastic from collection site operating teams who can distribute the profits according to the rules of their collection site. Energy is used to recover the material, and buying pre-collecting the material for voucher expedition teams would save them those resources.
Material collected from the collection areas, for the purpose of using locally, is free for local use, under the direction of the Recycling Coordination Office.
Currently suggested layouts for this project include a Satellite Internet connection combined with Wifi extenders to provide the connection service needed to allow users to gain access to their units with remote access controls.
Prices to use the satellite connections to the units can vary depending on who control that service point. It could be a pre-paid setup where users pay for the time they access their units, or everyone with access to the service can get a service plan and split the service plan according to their agreements.
It is an expensive proposition, but buying an Internet Satellite that is already in space is a possibility and would provide connection services at a lower cost.
Abandoned units that, for some reason, are unable to have a connection established to them, are open to salvage operations after 30 days of the detected connection error. Salvaged units might be repaired and reintroduced to the area.
When not logged in, the units will perform automated tasks.
Units can be as cheap or as expensive as their design allows, but some uniformity will be needed with some parts of the design. Some of the pieces that will be required to participate with this program can be sold on the website, but generally the design of the ship is up to those who make it, and a unit doesn’t need to be equipped with every option of equipment, only the ones the designer wants to include.
It would be possible for multiple people to invest in a unit to share and for them to share connection access to that unit. Perhaps sponsorship for a unit can be obtained.
It might be possible to equip units with “laser tag” weapons and sensors for war simulations. It shouldn’t be very difficult to set up some kind of rank and score system.
The term “Unit” is used because not everything needs to be in the form of a boat. A unit can also be a free floating piece of equipment that does a specialized task to assist the units resembling boats.
An Artificial Intelligence program can be installed on the unit to help with the automation tasks. Additionally, the Artificial Intelligence profile can be customized to some extent to the unit designers specifications, creating not only an automated working unit, but giving it a personal personality, name, opinions, etc.
The details on this project are still being laid out. There is also a few specialized software programs that need to be funded before anything could be installed on the units to make them work together.
The software requirements were analyzed by several developers and the general quote for the software project was between 10 and 15 thousand dollars. There are some systems that can be used to some effect that are cheaper in their initial installation but because those systems are owned by other companies. Adding new features, custom updates, and changing the software isn’t usually possible with other companies software. Something like this requires access to the source code to make changes as needed.
