Who we are

A team of engineers, designers and ocean enthusiasts passionate about underwater tech and creating a positive impact.

Our people

We build, test and improve fast by prototyping and manufacturing in-house. We regularly test our technology in our workshop test tank, in the marina and from our field vessels on Sydney Harbour. We develop the hardware, electronics and software simultaneously as a tightly integrated system.

We’re an eager, diverse, nature-loving group of individuals, motivated by preserving the health of our oceans for generations to come. We swim, dive, surf and sail, and we believe that technology can be a force for protecting what we love.
