25 years of marine technology for science, research, and defense
Attend the Ropeless Consortium
Desert Star Systems has been asked to lead a workshop demonstrating the world's first fully operational ropeless fishing system this coming November called "Ropeless Fisher".
What We Do
Powered by a passion for the oceans, getting to where we are meant journeys of science, engineering, and exploration to the most remote regions from the bottom of the mid-Atlantic to under the ice in Antarctica. The dangers at times were potentially deadly, including a great white shark attack stopped cold by our sturdy early gear to submarine emergencies over 2800 fathoms below the seas. Today, our innovation is based on over 25 years of deep insights into 'how things work' in earth's oceans. We split our time between fieldwork gaining new insights often in partnership with our customers, translation of these insights into new products in our lab and leading our multi-generation company, with now its third generation of owner-operators. At DSS we can almost certainly advise and answer your questions on matters of satellite tagging, underwater acoustic monitoring, the application of acoustic releases in rope-less fishing or to deploy large instrument arrays, underwater precision positioning/surveying, acoustic communication and more.
