Harsh Environment Engineering For Extreme Marine Conditions

For over two decades, we have served in the military, commercial, and scientific sectors. Specializing in harsh environment engineering, we are industry leaders in design, development, and prototyping tailored for the most demanding marine environments. Our expertise includes designing and developing high-pressure housing, subsea design, high-temperature applications, sensor design, among others.

There’s no extreme environment engineering challenge that can’t be solved. Embrace the diversity of the challenge, be it physical, operational or prototyping – our team is here to assist.

Engineering Solutions for the Harshest Environments

In the world’s most unforgiving conditions, we ensure your mission’s success. From full ocean depth to polar waters, we design, prototype, and deploy solutions that meet rigorous marine operation demands. Our expertise includes top-side design, shore-based support systems, and subsea instrumentation mechanisms.

We specialize in harsh environment engineering, rugged electronics, and subsea engineering services. Our comprehensive offshore engineering solutions include top-side design, shore-based support systems, and subsea instrumentation, ensuring mission success in the most extreme marine environments.

Problems We Can Help You Solve

It can be remarkably challenging to build solutions that need to withstand extreme fluctuations in pressure, temperature, and humidity along with the other challenges of remote deployment at sea. Here are some of the challenges we’ve conquered:

    • Corrosion: due to dissimilar metals in salt water
    • Watertight enclosures: for extreme temperatures and pressures
    • Mooring and anchoring: for high sea states and in deep sea conditions
    • Launch and retrieval: under various extremes of lighting, temperatures and sea states
    • Power management: for long battery life under high actuators and communication loads
    • Ruggedized packaging: that can handle high impact loads and extreme pressures
    • Wear and chafing: between moving parts caused by sand, ice build-up, and marine fouling
    • Protecting marine life: caused by natural interactions
    • Satisfying regulations: with varying restrictions around the globe
    • FEA Failure prediction: using finite element analysis to predict failures before they happen.
    • Prototyping: transforming ideas and designs into functional prototypes
    • Production: taking prototypes to sea-ready production
    • Lab and Field Testing: to ensure designs perform as predicted before full-scale deployment.
    • Design for Manufacture: to achieve designs that can be fabricated on budget and at scale.
