Cyprus Subsea Consulting and Services (CSCS) specializes in:
- Underwater Gliders
- Floats & Drifters
- Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs)
- Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs)
- Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASVs)
- Moorings, Moored Buoys & Bottom-Mounted Platforms
An underwater glider is a highly efficient Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) which utilizes small changes in buoyancy & attitude to achieve forward motion to cover long distances.
Manufactured by Hydroid – a part of Huntington Ingalls Industries, Seagliders are one of the most advanced oceanographic observing tools on the market.
Available in three versions:
- C2 – max depth: 200 m
- M1 – max depth: 1000 m
- M6 – max depth: 6000 m
CSCS has been operating Seagliders for over ten years in different seas of the world and under many different weather and sea conditions. In addition, we offere several after-sale services.
- mission planning
- data management
CSCS facilitates the rental and purchase of Seagliders.
Floats & Drifters
CSCS is the official representative for MetOcean in Cyprus and Greece. We also support other countries in the region with sales, training and data services. MetOcean produces profiling floats for passive acoustics and water properties and near-surface drifting systems for measuring currents and water properties for oceanographic studies, search and rescue and oil spill drift tracking.
As an Authorized Distributor of MRV Systems in Europe, CSCS offers standard and deep profiling floats meeting the Argo specification, as well as a biogeochemical model.
Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) & Autonomous Surface Vehicles (ASVs)
CSCS offers a variety of AUV and ROV survey, inspection and related services through our network of manufacturers and professional operators such as Kongsberg, Seatronics, OceanScan and Hydromea.
We currently own and operate a Blue Robotics BlueROV2 Heavy. Rated to an operating depth of 300 meters, the BlueROV2 Heavy is ready to conduct inspection-class and research-class missions, test sensors and monitor subsea environments.
Moorings, Moored Buoys & Bottom-Mounted Platforms
CSCS designs and builds custom observing platforms for any ocean depth.
- integrating sensors
- designing & configuring power and communication systems
- mounting hardware
- installing integrated observing platforms in the sea
Applications for these observing platforms
- bottom-current monitoring
- turbidity monitoring (during drilling or dredging activity)
- passive acoustic monitoring
- leak detection
- many more…
Self-contained and on-line solutions are available.
CSCS also provides standard and customized lander systems in cooperation with our partners.
