Data Harvesting

Connecting to subsea data systems is traditionally performed using a manned vessel. XOCEAN offers a platform combining subsea acoustic transceivers and a satellite broadband connection resulting in a highly flexible and cost-effective unmanned gateway to subsea systems. The systems allow for real-time interaction from any location globally, greatly enhancing data harvesting options.

Our Platform 


  • Proven ability to act as platform for acoustic modem and USBL devices.
  • Low vessel acoustic and electrical noise minimises interference with instrument acoustics.
  • Transmission of data back to shore via satellite.

Typical System Configuration 


  • Sonardyne HPT3000.
