Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) continue to make headway in the undersea world as efficient and durable light sources. Undersea lighting designers continue to follow the rapid development of LEDs for general commercial illumination.
High Brightness Light Emitting Diodes (HB-LEDs) are a reliable, efficient, compact, and robust light source for underwater applications including diver, ROV, AUV, free vehicle, and manned submersible platforms.
HMI lights, used to illuminate the Titanic in this 1991 expedition, are compact high efficient light sources that produce a near-daylight spectrum that penetrates much further in seawater than conventional lights.
We developed a unique transmission method for uncompressed HD-SDI video signals in subsea use known as FleXlink. After FleXlink was validated in the lab, we partnered with Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) to conduct field trials of the technology.
