July 1st, 2015 | Underwater ImagingWe developed a unique transmission method for uncompressed HD-SDI video signals in subsea use known as FleXlink™. After FleXlink was validated in the lab, we partnered with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) to conduct field trials of the technology.
March 1st, 2015 | Underwater ImagingWe are guided by several basic principles when creating any new product design. Performance, immersion longevity, durability, and compact form factor are just a few of the underlying concepts considered a necessity for any product that bears our name. This article discusses how these philosophies are applied to our development of High Definition imaging systems, including the FleXlink technology.
November 14th, 2014 | Press ReleasesOur HD Multi SeaCam captures remarkably crisp video with optically optimized flat or dome ports. Outfitted with coax, fiber optic, or FleXlink interconnects the HD Multi SeaCam delivers the highest quality of video capture in a compact tooling-class package.
October 17th, 2013 | Press ReleasesWe have advanced the low-light capability of the popular Nano SeaCam with a newly designed proprietary lens that allows seven times more light to enter the camera.
October 17th, 2013 | Press ReleasesWe have introduced a new and improved mounting bracket for the Multi SeaLite family of Halogen lights and SeaLite Sphere LED lights.
October 16th, 2013 | Press ReleasesOur popular SeaLite Sphere now offers field-serviceable connector replacement for a quick and easy repair in the field of a damaged connector.
November 3rd, 2011 | Underwater ImagingThe Nano SeaCam underwater video camera is a high resolution camera in a tiny package that goes deep. With a diameter of only 25mm (0.985”) and a length of 88.2mm (3.47”), including the connector, the Nano SeaCam provides quality video in a truly tiny package.
May 1st, 2011 | Underwater ImagingProperly designed underwater LED lights can be “plug & play” replacements for halogen lights. They can operate using the same wide choice of connectors, the same input power (120VAC or low voltage DC), and the same dimming controls (variable voltage or phase control dimming) as the halogen lights that they replace. This makes it easy for underwater operators to significantly upgrade the lighting that they use without encountering complex or costly changes in the process.
March 20th, 2010 | Products In UseThe MIRs have provided stable light and camera platforms for the making of well known deep ocean films, including James Cameron’s Titanic, Bismarck, Ghost of the Abyss, IMAX Titanica, Al Giddings’ Treasure of the Deep, and BBC’s Blue Planet.
February 20th, 2010 | PowerPressure compensated lead-acid storage batteries eliminate the need for heavy, bulky, expensive pressure housings for many underwater applications. This paper is focused on advancements in the venerable leadacid battery.
July 1st, 2009 | PowerThe idea is power under pressure. If storage batteries can be made to work across the extremes of pressure, the need for heavy, bulky, expensive housings is eliminated, and power can be delivered within smaller weight and space constraints, with arguable improvements in system safety.
June 20th, 2009 | Underwater ImagingManned vehicles, ROVs, and Saturation Divers are adopting Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) as powerful and durable light sources. Developments continue to follow the rapid evolution of LEDs for general topside illumination. Our engineers have devised compact ocean optics, both reflectors and lenses. Successful pressure compensation of both LEDs and driver electronics foretell future designs in diver and vehicle lighting.
February 20th, 2009 | Pressure TestingPressure testing has a long and storied history and remains one of the most useful tools subsea designers have available. It is a critical part of preparation but can be one of the first steps cut when resources get stretched. With the limited availability of ship time, combined with the high cost of ship operations and equipment, and long lead time of grant and project funding, it makes financial sense to validate system integrity before deployment.
December 1st, 2008 | Underwater ImagingOur line of underwater lights are used around the world by the most demanding end users in the earth's most extreme environments, including hot water hydrothermal vents, high pressure ocean trenches, radioactive nuclear storage facilities, and biohazardous sewage treatment plants.
October 28th, 2008 | Products In UseThe Nereus was a hybrid ROV built by the Deep Submergence Lab at WHOI to design the deepest parts of the ocean. We designed and manufactured ceramic floatation for the project.
October 20th, 2008 | Underwater ImagingLight Emitting Diodes (LEDs) continue to make headway in the undersea world as efficient and durable light sources. Undersea lighting designers continue to follow the rapid development of LEDs for general commercial illumination. In addition to improvements in LED technology, electronic drivers have become more compact and increasingly efficient, providing options to end users for thermal roll-back, dimming, AC/DC, or variable voltage input with constant current output.
February 20th, 2008 | Underwater ImagingHigh Brightness Light Emitting Diodes (HB-LEDs) are a reliable, efficient, compact, and robust light source for underwater applications including diver, ROV, AUV, free vehicle, and manned submersible platforms. LED lights are capable of single color or full daylight spectrum, offering unique solutions to oil field and other commercial problems.
August 20th, 2007 | Underwater ImagingSolid-state Lighting Comes of Age in the Deep Sea as High-Power LEDs Debut on dives by the submersible Alvin. LED-based lighting has seen significant performance improvements recently and is moving from specialty and indication applications, such as traffic signals and flashlights, to general home and business lighting applications. DeepSea Power & Light recently tested its underwater LED SeaLites on Alvin, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's (WHOI) manned submersible.
February 20th, 2007 | Underwater ImagingLight Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are emerging in the undersea world as a reliable, efficient light source capable of narrow or wide chromatic bandwidth. Use of gas discharge lamps as light sources in the deep sea is complicated by the need to pressure protect the sealed bulbs. LEDs provide a viable alternative for many diver, submersible, and unmanned vehicle applications.
