Guatek offers expertise in the design and development of ocean sensing systems from the surface waters to the Challenger Deep. We specialize in integrating state-of-the-art acoustic and optical sensors into fully autonomous, battery powered oceanographic instruments that captureunique and novel views of the ocean environment.
Guatek’s current product line consists of the SeaBatt line, which is a line of underwater, high-energy-density, positive buoyancy, sea batteries. In contrast to traditional sea batteries, the SeaBatt line uses glass sphere housings and state-of-the-art Lithium-Ion battery packs. This allows for major weight savings, positive or neutral buoyancy and longer run times. In addition, it is easy to perform battery upgrades (compared to oil-filled housings) to stay current with the latest battery technology.
We recently completed a collaboration with NOAA Advanced Survey Technologies Group, Ocean Innovations, and Bellamare to build a compact, underwater, lightfield imaging system based on the Raytrix R5 Camera.
