Changing how Subsea Video and Imaging are Captured, Stored and Viewed.
Cathx Ocean was founded in 2009 by Adrian Boyle and Michael Flynn to develop the world’s first true subsea machine vision systems. The company headquarters, including hardware design, software engineering and manufacturing is based in Kildare, Ireland, with additional office locations in Aberdeen, UK and Houston, USA. Our modern design and manufacturing operation in Kildare consists of a highly skilled engineering team, plus state of the art production and test facilities.
Drawing from previous experience in the application of imaging and laser technology in other industries our vision is to change how subsea imaging and measurement is performed today.
Cathx Ocean first entered the subsea market with our range of professional dive lights which are highly regarded by Navy & Police Forces, Subsea Construction and Oceanographic Research Divers worldwide. In 2012, the Cathx LED lighting range for subsea vehicles was introduced to the market. Following the success of these lighting products and recognising the need for improvements in subsea imaging and measurement, we began designing a subsea machine vision camera and laser system. Successful trials of this system were completed in the North Sea in 2014.
At Cathx Ocean, our mission is to work closely with our customers on new innovations and applications to deliver measurable change in subsea operations.
