Abstract—This paper,presents,a,joint research,project,of the Austrian Society for Innovative Computer Science, Austria and Oregon State University, USA which is intended to be realised within the next three years. The aim,of the project is to develop an autonomous,sailboat for passive acoustic monitoring of marine,mammals,and,mitigation of human,impacts,on them. Performance,tests of the autonomous,acoustic,sailboat - AAS Endurance,- will include,an open,sea transect of at least one month,duration. The work,presented,here discusses shortcomings of current,ways,of acoustic,marine,mammal,monitoring,and outlines advantages of a robotic sailboat for this task, as well as problems,to be solved with this new,technology. Index Terms—autonomous sailboat, robotics, marine mam- mals, bioacoustics, passive acoustic survey, underwater acoustics, line transect
