A new high-endurance, environmentally-powered profiling float platform developed by Seatrec in partnership with OSEAN Underwater Technology (France). Mermaid-TREC may be outfitted with a variety of physical, biogeochemical, and acoustical sensors. Custom configurations are available that combine traditional storage batteries with the environmentally rechargable TREC Battery to achieve up to 2000 profiles. Learn more...
Seatrec is pleased to announce the support of Breakout Labs, an exciting project of the Thiel Foundation dedicated to advancing big ideas by supporting radical early-stage science companies. Funding and guidance from Breakout Labs will accelerate development and application of our revolutionary energy-harvesting technology.
PROFILING UNDERWATER VEHICLES POWERED BY TEMPERATURE DIFFERENCES
USING THERMAL RECHARGING (TREC) BATTERY TECHNOLOGY
The Stimson Center and National Geographic's Pristine Seas Project have launched Secure Our Oceans – an online platform featuring maritime enforcement technologies needed to protect our oceans. Seatrec is proud to be among the first companies recognized and profiled as a provider of key technologies to safeguard MPAs and combat illegal fishing – a U.S. national and global security threat.
