  3. Our Mission

    Ocean Tech is a Bermuda Registered Charity No. 980 The charity operates unique marine research missions that provide scientific data to help develop areas of marine protection. The first mission is taking place in Bermuda during 2018 and 2019. Ocean Tech is bringing together the world’s top marine scientists with the world’s most advanced underwater autonomous vehicle - REMUS. REMUS is an un-manned underwater drone that autonomously follows and films endangered marine species such as whales, sharks and eagle rays for hours at a time. The vehicle’s job is to record how a species uses its underwater habitat and to identify areas that need protection. The video and environmental data collected by REMUS is synchronised and analysed by our Ocean Tech scientists, who will then produce scientific papers that focus on revealing critical habitat and ecosystem function. The scientific papers will then be delivered to local policy makers, including the Bermuda Government. The first mission in Bermuda will develop and deliver environmental STEM curriculum for local schools, 360-degree virtual reality content for a global network of Ocean Tech exhibits, a public lecture series, and a comprehensive media campaign including a global feature film. The funds raised from the sale of the Bermuda mission feature film will be awarded to five local marine conservation initiatives.
