We are developing a cost-effective platform which will enable rapid access to our ocean’s vital signs, using a CubeSat-like philosophy to change the way we collect and understand ocean data.
There are two main components in our compact autonomous platform: The BEMs (Bathypelagic Excursion Module), a swarm of vertically swimming AUVs and the surface vessel, a 'vending machine' style autonomous surface catamaran that is responsible for the horizontal transit, data handling and comms. A drone provides air support
At the heart of our system is our swarm of subsea drones. Combining expertise in subsea engineering, acoustics and material science, we are testing and validating a step-change in AUV technologies to make deep sea data rapidly attainable and affordable.
