From our world's ocean to ocean worlds
Our marine sensing technologies enable exploration, discovery and conservation of the oceans. We often partner with government agencies and universities to build and deploy our technologies on a global scale.
Our OPTICX (OPTrode Immersion multi-Chemistry eXplorer) system is a novel optrode-based instrument for the rapid, in-situ, autonomous measurement of multiple chemical species concentrations in ocean waters, including pH, dissolved oxygen (O2), carbonate ion (CO32-), and nitrate (NO3-). OPTICX integrates multiple optical transducers, or optrodes, a game-changing technology in ocean monitoring. Optrodes provide much-needed sensor-monitoring platform synergies and adaptive science strategies in communication- and power-limited platforms. Our technology improves the understanding of spatial and temporal variability in ocean biogeochemistry and provides a transformative tool for future autonomous, in-situ sensing.
We are key partners in the InVADER project (In-situ Vent Analysis Divebot for Exobiology Research), a NASA-funded research program enhancing our scientific understanding of Earth's oceans and beyond.
