This year represents The Oceanscience Group’s 15th year serving the oceanographic, hydrographic and hydrologic industries across the globe. The company is growing rapidly causing the need to again move to larger facilities after only four years at the current location.

The Company:

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.

The Tech:

• 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. 
• Environmental Monitoring Deployment Systems: Its 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.
