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.
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.
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.
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.
