This project is intended to provide a market assessment of the emerging industry of hull cleaning robots to help the United States Coast Guard with their mission of reducing the spread of non-indigenous marine species. We researched the feasibility of these technologies that stakeholders need to be aware of, including the regulations and state of the market. The project resulted in a comprehensive list of every hull cleaner that we were able to identify and their functionality along with design parameters.
