Cyprus Subsea blends academic and technical expertise with seagoing and survey experience. We contribute to scientific research as well as commercial and governmental projects around the world. Our collective experience with international scientific research, engineering marine projects, and seagoing experience makes CSCS a unique company.

We specialize in marine robotics and autonomous systems. Cyprus Subsea serves the public and private sector with custom system integration, equipment maintenance, rentals, and official resales as well as data collection, analysis, and reporting services.

Current Projects


The BIOGLIDER: Autonomous Exploration and Monitoring of Marine Ecosystems Project aims to develop and test an innovative marine ecology sensing system onboard AUV gliders. In addition to building imaging and acoustic payloads for gliders, the BIOGLIDER consortium will develop acoustic data transmission to recover data from remote platforms. This project also involves significant testing and demonstration missions in the Norwegian Arctic.


The GROOM II project will define the overall organization of an infrastructure dedicated to ocean research and innovation and maritime services supporting Blue Growth.  The project will deliver the decision basis for an advanced Marine Research Infrastructure (MRI) that promotes scientific excellence, fosters innovation, supports the blue economy, builds industrial and public partnerships and works towards helping achieve the common research and innovation mission for future Europe.


TechOceanS logo

The TechOceanS Project aims to create new technology for underwater vehicles to support ocean conservation and monitoring. The TechOceanS Project’s unique and encompassing approach engages scientists, marine stakeholders and policy makers. Overall, the project advances our collective understanding of essential ocean variables in support of a healthier ocean!


During Phase II of the project, Cyprus Subsea continues to provide engineering and operational support to Akvaplan-niva AS, the research and consultancy company leading the “GLIDER: Unmanned Ocean Exploration” Project.

OS Aqua

OS Aqua is a national project that will enable the strategic development of an open sea aquaculture industry in Cyprus. In addition to significantly increasing food production, the project aims to minimize impact to the natural environment. The project defines maritime zones, design facilities, automatization and monitoring systems and conducts a financial sustainability study.


In collaboration with a consortium of 12 high-profile partners, the overall goal of MARI-Sense is to design and develop a one-stop Cognitive Decision Support System essential to entities that need to “make sense of the maritime environment” via intelligent collection, interpretation and meaningful presentation of maritime data.

Cyprus Subsea contributes to advanced Sea Traffic Management systems. As a work package leader, Cyprus Subsea develops efficient port management tools and innovative monitoring and forecasting systems to reduce the risk and impact of accidents at sea around the Port of Limassol.

Past Projects


SMART Cable Prototype with visible PCB

The SMART Cable is a programmable cable assembly intelligently connecting a marine sensor to a platform. As an innovative cable, the assembly consists of an ultra-low power electronics circuit embedded between each end. The cable assembly allows several functionalities and data processing capacity for input and/or output data.


BRIDGES Project Logo

BRIDGES aimed for the development of new underwater platforms, deep (2400 m) and ultra-deep (5000 m) gliders. Ocean gliders are used commercially in the fields of environmental monitoring, oil and gas and deep sea mining. As a result, the project addressed market needs and advanced several technical achievements to produce these platforms.

Right Whale Study

Recovering a Seaglider in the Atlantic Ocean

This study was carried out by Advanced Offshore Operations, a subsidiary of CSCS. For this project, we designed and carried out an underwater glider mission plan along the shelf break in the mid-Atlantic bight. We used a Seaglider (Kongsberg Underwater Technology Inc.) with an integrated passive monitoring system to detect vocalizations of right whales. For more information, please contact Dr. Doug Nowacek at Duke University, the principle investigator of the project.

Eden Environmental Study

Diver deploying sensors in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Paphos

This project measured currents, waves and turbidity of a site near Paphos, Cyprus for 6 months. In addition, we measured high accuracy tidal levels in the Port of Paphos. Similar studies have been conducted in the past in other regions of Cyprus. However, these data sets provide calibration and validation with near coastal models for planning and permitting procedures, as well as baseline values of turbidity. We used an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler with pressure sensor and wave capabilities.
