Based just outside Vancouver, Canada, ISE has delivered 240 vehicles and over 400 robotic manipulators to more than 20 countries. Notable product achievements include the HYSUB ROVs, the THESEUS AUV, Explorer Class of AUVs, Magnum ROV manipulators, Shell SmartPump refueling robot, aircraft robotic refueling device and the STM Crew training robot for the Canadian Space Agency. This experience, combined with the extensive knowledge gathered from integrating a host of payloads into these vehicles provides ISE with the ability to assist clients in finding the right solution to their needs.

ISE is developing new market opportunities in Africa, South America, Asia and Europe. The product lines are currently in design review with specific development areas identified for upgrade such as propulsion, control and robotics. Partners for market development and product research and development have been strategically identified for maximum return on investment.


ISE is one of the few sub sea companies that has experience in the development of all types of underwater vehicles. The ISE family of vehicles includes ROVs, AUVs, submersibles, semi-submersibles, and active towfish. ISE ROVs are robust systems that have been used in offshore drilling support, pipeline inspection, scientific research, and cable maintenance, accident investigation and torpedo recovery. ISE AUV systems have been primarily utilized in oceanographic research initiatives to date, commercial operations are now coming to the forefront of the marketplace. ISE provides its customers capabilities ranging from feasibility studies, detailed analysis, systems design, development, testing, quality control and field support. We place great emphasis on developing equipment to meet specific requirements based on customer missions.

For both ROV and AUV products, ISE is well positioned with established technologies and new technologies in order to aggressively pursue the market areas of offshore oil and gas (maintenance, supply) and academic societies worldwide. Deep water research and development realized in both of these areas determine the technologies that are needed from foreign organizations, research that ISE has been involved with and hired to reach the technological conclusions required.
