We make the invisible visible, by popping up the seafloor in high detail. Our underwater satellites combine advanced imaging with AI and underwater navigation. We build a seafloor atlas providing geo-referenced maps with multiple software solutions. We enable automated systematic seafloor monitoring for various applications, such as underwater constructions (e.g. offshore wind), but also tackle ecological and economic impact of climate change and plastic waste in the oceans.

→ Research shows that while men apply to jobs if they meet ~60% of criteria, women and those in traditionally underrepresented groups tend to apply only if they check all the boxes. So, if you think you have what it takes but don't meet every single point above, please still get in touch. We'd love to have a chat and see if you could be a great fit.
