About the Event
OCEANS is the bi-annual event for global marine technologists, engineers, students, government officials, lawyers, and advocates. These industry thought leaders gather for four days to highlight relevant topics and current trends, while creating a community of learners and influencers who consistently advance research, practices, and policies for the marine field.

The Marine Technology Society and the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society partner to present OCEANS, and this prestigious conference and exhibition draws an audience of more than 2,000 attendees:
  • Over 500 professionally reviewed technical papers, including sessions focused on local themes.
  • Plenary sessions with leaders from industry, academia, the military and government.
  • 100+ exhibitors showcasing the latest innovations in products and services.
  • A student poster session featuring outstanding projects from around the world and other student activities.
  • Tutorials, workshops, demonstrations, government listening sessions, social and networking opportunities, professional field trips …and much, much more.

Saab Seaeye lead the world in electric underwater robotic systems. For over 30 years our systems have operated in some of the most hostile environments on the planet and to depths of nearly two miles below the surface of the world’s oceans. Our pioneering technology has revolutionised the underwater robotics industry.... More

In turbulent waters and pitch darkness, these remarkable vehicles can undertake missions that would be impossible by any other means. Tasks that range from gathering fragile Roman pottery, to recovering torpedoes; and from filming bioluminescent creatures, to creating detailed 3D scans of dam structures.

Rapid advances in miniaturisation and intelligent control architecture are creating ever smaller and smarter robotic systems that are more agile and more powerful, and bring advanced technology to ever more complex tasks.

Winning a worldwide reputation for creating highly sophisticated technology that is trusted to work at a diverse range of tasks in the most hazardous conditions is our proudest achievement.

Over 80 percent of our systems are exported across the globe and used in diverse sectors that include oil and gas, renewables, marine science, aquaculture, hydro engineering, undersea mining, salvage, telecoms, nuclear, leisure, emergency and defence.

Our parent company SAAB AB employs 14,000 people in over 30 countries.
