From the surface to the seafloor, Nekton’s Missions deploy some of the latest undersea technologies.
Fully integrated into our operations, innovative and technology is fundamental to accelerating our understanding and documentation of the deep ocean.
Two of the most advanced submersibles equipped with cutting-edge scientific research and filming equipment.
The Science Ships
Mission 1 will be operating from two main ships, the Baseline Explorer for submersible-based research and the CCGS Hudson, a scientific research ship equipped with a 2000m depth capable remotely operated vehicle (ROV), seabed corer and multiple beam sonar.
How do you research and explore the deep ocean?
Exploration means observation, it is the first step in a scientific process that brings knowledge and understanding. Exploration also means discovery, expanding our horizons to answer questions we have not yet even imagined.
Technology and deep ocean exploration
Deep ocean exploration requires technological innovation comparable with the exploration of space. The problem of sustaining life under the extreme pressure of the deep ocean is not rocket science. Arguably it’s a whole lot harder!
