Since 1998, Oceanscience has developed and manufactured oceanogrpahic, hydrgraphic and hydrologic field equipment and instrumentation for corporations, major government agencies and institutions in more than 50 countries. One third of the staff are either ocean scientists or mechanical, robotics, or ocean engineers. Oceanscience focuses on building collaborative relationships with its customers, industry partners and representatives around the globe and placing an emphasis on customer satisfaction.
Oceanscience manufactures a wide range of integrated systems for measuring and monitoring the world’s waterways, from the deep ocean and coastal waters to rivers, lakes and ponds. Our products comprise four major categories:
Underway Profiler Systems: The revolutionary UnderwayCTD™ and UnderwaySV provide low cost, high quality CTD and Sound Velocity profiles for oceanographic researchers and hydrographic surveyors around the globe. Profiles are made while a vessel is underway at speeds up to 20kt and no expendable parts are left behind. The environmentally friendly system offers quick, repeatable profiles saving both ship and personnel time.
Remotely-Operated Hydrographic Survey Boats: The new Oceanscience Z-Boats offer a portable, fully integrated ready-to-use bathymetric survey solution for shallow waters. There’s no need to mobilize a manned boat for a survey area or to complete time consuming administrative procedures before surveying hazardous waters. Instead simply launch the remotely-operated Z-Boat and start surveying. The Z-Boat depth sounder and GPS are integrated with an RF data link that lets the operator monitor the boat track in real time on a laptop. Survey lines are easily followed and soundings reviewed as the data are collected.
Environmental Monitoring Deployment Systems: Our seafloor and surface buoy-mounted platforms for acoustic Doppler current profilers and other instruments lead the industry in ease-of-use, reliability and ruggedness. The Sea Spider and Barnacle bottom mounts and Clamparatus buoy-of-opportunity mounts are used by major oceanographic institutions and government agencies around the world.
River Discharge Boats for ADCP’s: Oceanscience has shipped more than 4500 unmanned boats for a wide variety of fresh and saltwater applications. The Riverboat/ADCP system has significantly reduced discharge measurement time and labor all over the world. Flows up to 6m/s are handled with ease and available communications options complete the discharge monitoring package.
