Born out of our desire to mitigate the usage of sonar technology, SeaDeep provides the data, maps, required for sustainable, efficient, and safe development of the ocean.
We are passionate about saving the ocean. SeaDeep’s goal is is to fundamentally change the manner in which civil engineers perform pre/post construction surveys.
Our solution provides information of an unparalleled fidelity. Our highly efficient, detailed models are easy to implement, have simple operating requirements, and can be created to any scale.
