A Sea of Solutions... One Supplier.


With about 71% of the Earth’s surface covered in water and the majority of it unmapped, unobserved and undiscovered, the opportunity to be a part of this new exploration is very exciting.  Challenges with temperature extremes, zero visibility and pressures that can even crush titanium can make investigation in the ocean depths even more difficult than travel through space.


The Teledyne Marine Engineering Team participates in this path to discovery in their work on the development of state-of-the-art marine sensors, instruments and vehicles that operate in these environments, tackling applications from deep water observatories through to manned and unmanned vehicles that travel the world’s oceans.
