FRED Prototype Testing and Local Demonstrations

Clear Blue Sea has built four FRED prototypes to date and they are all located in our warehouse. Due to Covid preventing us from fully testing these prototypes for over a year, a key project is to develop a complete set of test procedures, conduct testing in the warehouse and in the water, and enhance the prototypes as needed so they can be used for local demonstrations and cleanup operations.
