At land and at sea
Apart from just perserving the environment while out at sea, a similar concept can be applied to a land vehicle. This way, we will get to be as environmentally-friendly as we can be regardless of our location. The main aim is to stay as green as we can be especially when a large volume of work needs to be performed.

Re: 3G?
Quote... "The original plan was to use a satellite modem (using the (sic) Idridium network) to send infrequent (hourly) position reports, and check for mission updates. However, this idea was exchanged for a 3G modem designed for remote access to RS232-based equipment." ....??

Re: 3G?
Just read the article and it says satellite modem, not 3G modem.

3G?
Nice project.  But if it was using a 3G modem, how did it communicate in the middle of the Pacific ocean?  Not too many cell towers out there.....

Was the boat retrieved, and if so what had been the points of failure?  Mechanical, or water getting into the electronics?

Removing the vuvuzela narrow-band noise was presenting challenges to broadcast engineers
This article discusses how using a single synchronous buck controller can output the most common voltage rails, and accommodate a wide range of operating input voltages from 3V to 40V, and at a reasonable BOM cost.
This article explains how the latest-generation SiC FETs are ideally suited to new inverter designs with lower losses than IGBTs and proven robustness against short circuits, even at high temperatures and under repetitive stress
There’s a further cool thing you can do with a spreadsheet that most SPICEs can’t. That’s to use the spreadsheet ‘solver’ functionality to adjust component values in the search for a better-fitting circuit – or even to find a set of component values for a circuit you can’t otherwise design.
