Ocean Science

Understanding what is happening in our oceans is key to quantifying the impact of human activity on the earth’s climate, as well as to helping to inform how we manage ocean science resources and leisure and defence activities.

The focus of ocean science is increasingly moving towards understanding complex processes, operating over basin scales and on decadal timescales.

Ships have been the traditional platform for ocean exploration, research and science activity and while they continue to become ever more advanced, there’s also been a drive towards the use of subsea robotics and underwater autonomous systems, as well as different types of ocean observatories.

These systems are helping to broaden spatial and temporal coverage of our still largely unexplored oceans. The next steps are to increase our horizons further; going deeper, for longer and in more detail.

This means knowing exactly where and when data is collected, having low power sensors, using high-bandwidth acoustic and optical telemetry, and having optimised communications and positioning solutions, to navigate, track, measure and observe the ocean space.

We offer a variety of low-power sensing solutions designed for long-term seabed deployment, high bandwidth acoustic and optical telemetry and optimised communications and positioning solutions for unmanned underwater and surface vehicles and other platforms and assets.
