Lowering the threshold to widespread subsea data availability requires smarter tools, simpler operations and better data management.

Our philosophy

The 'A' stands for Autonomy

True autonomy in subsea robotics makes the life of the operators easier. The technology we use to explore our environment must be designed to keep this in mind. 

Keep it simple, stupid

Our variation on this is 'keep it stupidly simple'. Complexity means cost, and the costs are already high enough. By carefully considering what is actually needed to achieve the objective, we eliminate unnecessary complexity in both the design and the operations, saving cost, time and energy across the system's lifetime for both ourselves and our end-users.

"We are a high tech company at heart, because the simplest solutions are often the hardest to find."

Soft Shell

The pressure rapidly increases when descending from the surface of the ocean. Instead of protecting the electronics and equipment inside the robots, we have designed everything to handle the pressure. By avoiding metal pressure vessels and heavy feedthroughs we save a tremendous overhead, making our robot smaller and more cost effective, yet able to operate up to full ocean depth.

Modularity

The low overhead enabled by Soft Shell opens up the option for full subsystem modularity. We can swap any subsystem of the robot anywhere in under a minute.

Broken thruster? Swap!

Empty battery? Swap!

Different payload? Swap!
