Introducing the Global Ocean Design Newsletter

This newsletter, like our company, is committed to your success at sea. We will look at everything from design to technician training. We will provide hyperlinks to useful writing, both our own and others. We’ll keep it brief, with links to more material if you’re interested.

My seagoing experience spans more than 40 years, including a full career at Scripps Institution of Oceanography/UCSD and a tour with James Cameron’s DEEPSEA CHALLENGE Expedition as his benthic “Lander Commander.” The adventure continues as we explore Open Source Benthic Lander systems and novel methods to get them to sea.
I hope you’ll enjoy and benefit from being a subscriber. Your ideas and contributions to this newsletter are always welcome.

Moisture Control in Subsea Housings
Water vapor in a subsea housing can cause system failure when condensation due to cold temperatures at depth fogs a camera lens or short circuits electronic boards. Prudent designers will proactively remove entrained moisture before deployment.  Both passive and dynamic systems are discussed, including a lightweight and TSA Approved Deck Purge Box.
Experimenter's Polystyrene Instrument Housing
These 10” OD plastic spheres work to 2,000m, providing a low-cost pressure case alternative. They come standard with an o-ring face seal, three tapped connector ports with blanking plugs, a self-sealing purge port and vacuum adapter, and two interior mounting rings and plates.
The 10” polystyrene spheres are used in the BL-100 Nanolander
