Desert Star's Vision & a Call for Partners 

A Real-Time Dashboard for the Oceans

The oceans are among the most important resources of our planet.   And while ocean technology is very sophisticated, it is also very expensive.  Compared to land, sensor distribution in the oceans (beyond satellite remote sensing range) is extremely sparse. This limits our ability to understand and manage the resource.  Over 24 years of collaboration with our many scientific, military and commercial customers, Desert Star has developed and deployed a broad line of affordable and scalable ocean sensor technology.  Our vision is the true industrialization of real-time ocean sensing, resulting in an 'ocean dashboard' addressing global security issues ranging from fishing stock management, endangered species protection and resource exploration to freedom of navigation, natural disaster warning and climate change monitoring.  It is a project of massive economic potential, yet also one far beyond the realistic scope of our company as a stand-alone entity.  Follow our CEO's Twitter, Marco Flagg, for more!   #oceandashboard
