AUV's are a the oceans disruptive technology

Providing AUV rentals, support services and training, Tiburon Subsea Services was formed to service the expanding field of autonomous underwater vehicles and the wave of technology that are bringing these systems into broad global use. 

AUV's are on the cusp of becoming the major disruptive technology in the exploration and accurate mapping of the underwater world. With a background in operational and logistical support for ROV/AUV operations, marine research, coastal zone management and underwater film and photography projects Tiburon Subsea Services management have been major players in underwater exploration for over twenty-five years and on the cutting edge of offshore AUV operations since 2007. "Tiburon Subsea Services" leverages the vast experience of its management team along with its global affiliate operators to set-up and service a major share of the global benthic imaging and data collecting market.

Tiburon Subsea Services utilize the most modern workhorse AUV's designed for coastal data collection to form the base of their fleet. The systems are designed to give a single operator the ability to run multiple vehicles, including launch and retrieval. Years of development have gone into easy of use and safety features that avoid vehicle risk. These systems are an affordable broad base deployable production grade vehicle that can stand up to the day to day of coastal and offshore demands.
