Developing and deploying extreme environment technologies that provide unprecedented insights into some of the most extreme and inaccessible environments and cultural heritage sites on Earth.
DEEP OCEAN DROPCAM
Deep Ocean Dropcam is a low-cost, low-logistics research tool for probing the deep ocean. These fully autonomous systems combine a high-definition camera and lights inside a glass pressure housing, and can capture high-quality imagery of the deep sea floor. Dropcams have has been deployed more than 500 times worldwide.
Deploying advanced imaging sensors, machine learning algorithms and systems to provide real-time data for monitoring biodiversity distribution, patterns and trends; detecting illegal fishing and poaching; and bringing protected areas “to life”.
NEXT GENERATION WILDLIFE CAMERA TRAP
The wildlife-silent, production-grade camera trap system enables the presentation of high-quality, impactful imagery to share the story of our planet’s biodiversity. These automated camera systems are placed in locations too dangerous for photographers to stay or where a human presence would frighten away animals.
