Top Ten Shore Dive Locations in the U.S. for Underwater Drones

There’s a lot more to see close to shore than you think. The new class of remotely operated vehicles or underwater drones like Trident makes them far more accessible. Check out our list of favorites.

Minimizing the Risk of Invasive Species on ROVs

Remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), like any machine or equipment used in marine or freshwater applications, present a potential risk for the transmission of invasive species. If not properly cleaned and treated, they may introduce novel species into new regions.

Connecting Mavericks

For a big wave surfer, knowing the exact wave conditions matters. Grant Washburn deployed a Spotter just offshore of Mavericks, California's big-wave surfspot.

Spotter Array Explores the Southern Ocean

After a year-long 4,000 mile voyage through the frigid waters of the Southern Ocean, while being exposed to some of the largest waves on the planet, Spotters cross the stormy waters of the Drake Passage.

Close Encounter With A Great White Shark

Dominik Fretz took his Trident to Isla Guadalupe to help shark researchers. Watch the video for a close-up view of a Great White Shark bite.

Spotter Measures Surface Winds

Wind blowing over the ocean drives the generation of short surface waves and whitecaps. From detailed measurement of the so-called equilibrium range in the wave spectrum, Spotter derives wind speed and direction

Spotter Improves Marine Forecasts in Fiji

New buoy technology provides better wave forecasts and ocean weather data for remote islands with critical coral ecology challenges.

Spotter Meets 3D Vision in the Mediterranean Sea

The ISMAR research team led by Dr. Alvise Benetazzo uses Spotters to study the interaction between atmosphere and ocean.

Using Trident to Teach Maritime Heritage and Archeology

Trident captures the excitement of underwater discovery, giving the controls to participants and bringing them a real-life experience of underwater science.
