OPENSEA® platform can be found at all ocean depths from the surface and littoral environment down to the deepest ocean depths.
Greensea has created custom engineering solutions for navigation, control, and sensor integration within the scientific subsea community since 2006, working with scientists, explorers, and researchers around the globe.
Examples of Greensea’s Custom Engineering
Vulcan Inc. utilizes state-of-the-art Greensea technology in their R/V Petrel ROV. Greensea’s operating platform, OPENSEA, provides inertial navigation and supervised autonomy in a unified, integrated system for the ROV.
Custom engineering included:
- Automated ascent and descent winch control system allowing pilots to set a desired vehicle depth and automatically descend or ascend to that level.
- Automatic black box recorder turning on/off when the vehicle entered/ exited the water, providing a comprehensive recording of the mission’s telemetry data for both the AUV and the ROV.
- Synchronized pilot and co-pilot chairs with touchscreen displays supporting simultaneous operation of lights, cameras, and hydraulics, while enabling vehicle control to be switched between pilots.
- Multi-vehicle user interface.
“Greensea’s OPENSEA control system is crucial to our success for extreme deep diving operations. Never before have I experienced an ROV control environment as unified, configurable, or integrated as this one. Greensea has a solid, reliable product, and I consider them a valued asset to all of our subsea systems.”Robert Kraft
