Greensea was founded in 2006 to provide the offshore industry with advanced navigation, control, and automation software in an operator-friendly workspace. The company has since installed systems on hundreds of vehicles, and provides software solutions to numerous OEMs, U.S. Government facilities, science and academic institutions, and end users.
Its strength stems from a team of engineers with extensive experience with integrated underwater navigation systems and advanced vehicle control.  Backed by this team, Greensea offers commercially available products as well as custom engineering solutions that utilize Greensea’s openSEA core technology.  Greensea provides integrated inertial navigation systems, mission planning, autopilots, and intelligent automation for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles based on our patent-pending technology, openSEA. openSEA was designed and developed specifically as a modular programming environment for UUVs, and is built on a robust error reporting and communication backbone. It provides proven and tested software modules ranging from optimal control and Kalman filtering, to data management, to native support for thousands of widely-used sensors and devices.  The strength of Greensea’s technology was first recognized by the scientific community. One of our earliest adopters is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, who commissioned the company for a complete system upgrade for its Deep Discoverer ROV and Seirios camera platform in 2012. In the spring of 2015 the team successfully integrated technology with the Ventana, the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute’s work class ROV, and ROPOS, the Canadian Scientific Submersible Facility’s 5,000 meter, 3393 kg vehicle.
