… excellence in underwater research and development


Tel: +44(0)1631 559211

The combination of sheltered coastal environments, little surface traffic and limited fishing activity means that there are areas north of Oban that are perfect for conducting equipment trials over a range of timescales. The trials have mostly used divers to either track the condition of the equipment over time or to perform evaluation experiments to ground-truth remote operations. Examples of trials carried out include:

  • Static underwater radar
  • Underwater LIDAR
  • GPS dive computers
  • Low-cost subtidal CTD loggers
  • Benthic landers
  • Sediment Profile Imaging (SPI) cameras
