Welcome to Ocean Visuals

We specialize in the development and deployment of Hyper-spectral Laser-Induced Fluorescence (HLIF) lidar sensor systems. Our technology is focused on oil spill detection, verification, and classification, and designed to provide real-time monitoring and mapping of oil spills in the ocean. We aim to provide cost-effective, high-resolution, and highly sensitive solutions for detecting and monitoring oil spills, with the goal of reducing the environmental impact of oil spills on the world's oceans.
