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 in water. We deliver cost-effective, high-resolution, and highly sensitive solutions for detection and monitoring oil spills, with the goal of reducing the environmental impact of oil spills on the world's oceans.

Despite the best efforts of an on-water response to a large oil spill at sea, the likelihood is that at least some of the spilled oil will eventually reach the shoreline. When shoreline impact occurs, or is likely to occur, shoreline assessment is a critical component of the response and provides essential information for setting objectives, priorities, constraints and endpoints for an effective shoreline response.
