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.

Inspiring Girls to Build and Explore (with Underwater Robots)

Two amazing women are touring the country with an underwater robot camp for girls to learn to be leaders in science and exploration

Trident Films Orcas Annual Feeding Frenzy in the Arctic Circle

Every year, high above the arctic circle, groups of orcas and humpback whales come to feed in the fjords of Norway.

Pacifico Aquaculture

"...extremely pleased with its performance, capabilities and how user friendly it is. We have been using it quite often since it arrived, for cage maintenance inspections, seafloor bottom benthic monitoring, and recently we have used it to check on our mooring and anchor systems which are in deeper water than our divers are allowed to go."

Trident "Live Dive" With National Geographic Australia Draws A Big Audience

To celebrate World Oceans Day, National Geographic Australia took their online communties below the surface off the coast of Sydney to illuminate the underwater world below.

Monitoring Great White Sharks off the Coast of San Francisco

Remote technology gets face-to-face with the ocean's top predator near a remote cluster of islands knowns as the Devil's Teeth.

Data Validation: Spotter Takes a Stand

To provide a direct validation of the Spotter motion sensing capabilities, we purpose-built a motion-controlled teststand that enables detailed simulation of realistic ocean surface motions.

Data Validation: Statistics at Mavericks

To compare the Spotter data with traditional scientific instrumentation, we deploy a Spotter alongside a Datawell Waverider near Mavericks, the California big-wave surf spot. Detailed comparison of spectra and directional moments confirms outstanding Spotter data quality.

How to Stream Your Trident Dive Live to the Internet

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.

The Perfect Trident Field Kit

After searching through the records of our own trips we’ve come up with what we consider a good basic field kit for any Trident deployment.

The Science Behind Sofar Ocean Marine Weather Forecasts

We deployed an array of 200 weather sensors in the Pacific and assimilate the data in our global models. We have reduced forecast rms errors by over 20%, providing the highest fidelity wave forecasts in the world.
