Deep Sea Systems International (Oceaneering)
Deep Sea Systems International is an innovative, high technology company that brings decades of deep ocean engineering experience to the design and manufacture of underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and ROV components including the Ocean ProHD camera system and LED lighting.
DSSI has successfully developed products and managed projects that have led the ROV industry into the future of deep ocean exploration.
Many of the expeditions and surveys that DSSI has organized and developed products for have been documented in National Geographic and Sea Technology magazines.
These projects have included:
|Directing ROV operations exploring the British bark H.M.S Breadalbane in Resolute Bay, Canada|
|Exploring Pearl Harbor’s battleship Arizona, Lake Superior’s S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald and numerous other wrecks with the Mini Rover MK-2|
|Providing technical project management and engineering services for director Stephen Low’s “Titanica,” an IMAX film documentary that explores the wreckage of the R.M.S. Titanic|
|Specialized deep water all-electric pan & tilt units were designed and built by DSSI and installed on the Russian Mir submarines and used in the filming of “Titanica” and in the underwater sequences in the Hollywood movie “Titanic.” These units were also in the 17,500-foot dives to the wreck of the German I-52 submarine|
|Directed ROV operations and piloted a Mini Rover MK-2 in a survey of Japan’s Suruga Bay, Siberia’s Lake Baikal, California’s Monterey Bay, and California and Nevada’s Lake Tahoe|
|Participated in two expeditions to explore Loch Ness with Robert Rines of the Academy of Applied Science using a specially modified Mini MAX Rover|
|Aboard Canada’s icebreaker Louis S. St.-Laurent, Chris dove the Ocean Explorer ROV to water depths up to 9,400 feet to explore the Arctic Ocean’s Canada Basin in a project for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Japan Marine Science and Technology Center, and the Fisheries and Oceans Canada|
|In 2005, participated in NOAA’s “Hidden Ocean” expedition aboard the US Coast Guard icebreaker Healy exploring the frigid depths of the Canada Basin located in the deepest part of the Arctic Ocean|
|In August 2007, Global Explorer joined the successful search for the USS Grunion which was lost during WWII near the Aleutians Islands with 70 men on board|
