The $7 Million Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE is a global competition challenging teams to advance deep-sea technologies for autonomous, fast and high-resolution ocean exploration. Embedded in this is a $1 million bonus prize by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration to incentivize teams to develop technologies to detect the source of chemical and biological signals underwater. The success of this prize will allow us to fully explore and map the ocean floor, and uncover our planet’s greatest wonder and resource for the benefit of humanity.
