About the Event
Oceanology International Americas, 25-27 February 2019, San Diego Convention Centre, USA.

Oceanology International is the world's leading marine science and ocean technology exhibition and conference. Oi started in the UK and runs every two years, in 2019 we celebrate its 50th anniversary in San Diego for Oi Americas second edition. Over the years, the Oi portfolio has established itself as a truly global portfolio with events in London, China and San Diego.

The 3-day conference and exhibition will be returning in 2019 newly branded as Oceanology International Americas to broaden its reach to the rest of the Americas. This is with the aim of welcoming over 2,700 attendees and enabling more than 200 exhibitors to showcase the latest ocean technologies and industry developments on the trade show floor as well as on water demos and vessels.

Attracting visitors from a variety of industries including offshore oil & gas, ports & harbours, marine renewables, maritime security and marine science, Oceanology International gives the opportunity for buyers and suppliers to do business in one location. Oceanology International offers structured networking opportunities to help suppliers establish relationships and secure business on a global scale.

Our Story
It all started when we decided that we wanted to try to send a solar powered robotic boat from Los Angeles to Hawaii.

It was a fun side project: build a small GPS-guided solar-powered boat and send it from Los Angeles to Hawaii, completely autonomously. We wanted to do something cool that had never been done before.

While researching components for the project, we realized that the limiting component was the thruster. We needed something high quality to resist saltwater, operate continuously, and be efficient for months on end. The least expensive options we could find were over $550 each, pushing us over our budget. Not to mention, these thrusters needed maintenance every 50 hours and were designed with outdated technology. As we did more research, we found that many people are building their own marine robots and are having the same problem. Most of them have simply given up or used less-than-ideal solutions, like using brushless motors directly in water that have to be replaced when they corrode. Some people tried to build their own thrusters, but with little success.

We set out to design a thruster that is affordable, reliable, and more capable than anything out there to enable these people and many more to explore the ocean. Now here we are.
