High Frequency Sonar Is Key to Unmanned Marine Survey

EdgeTech started out as a division of EG&G Marine Instruments and, in 1995, adopted its current name as a tribute to the late Dr. Harold Edgerton, a marine technologist who, besides being one of the founders of EG&G, was a pivotal figure in the development of sonar technology and underwater imagery.

Could Ocean Mining be a Required Enabler for Offshore Renewables?

As state-led contractors carry out their environmental due diligence and test their subsea technologies in the Pacific’s Clarion Clipperton Zone (CCZ), signs suggest that ocean mining extraction could become a reality within the next few years.

A Depth of Expertise

Having generated more than $90-million in positive mainstream media coverage in the last two years, Triton Submarines is arguably the highest profile company operating in the subsea sector today. How does this boutique engineering firm continue to achieve the extraordinary?

Ocean Mining: Time to Swarm the Deep?

Present-day ocean mining technologies center around the deployment of seabed crawlers engineered to harvest polymetallic nodules found at depths of over 4,000 min the Clarion Clipperton Zone (CCZ). While most of the tried-and-tested hardware is borrowed straight out of the offshore oil and gas toolkit, there are escalating concerns that these seafloor extraction methods will trigger irreparable damage todeep-sea biodiversity.
