Back in 2016, our CTO, Chad Collett wrote an article for Sea Technology Magazine about autonomous camera systems and how they will be the future of underwater imagery. A year later, SubC has completed the first step with the Rayfin; SubC Imaging’s first Autonomous camera.
SubC Imaging is proud to be named in the Marine Technology Reporter’s Top 100, the 12th annual listing of 100 leading subsea companies. The list was part of the July/August Issue recently published.
SubC continually strives to develop innovative underwater imaging technology for the benefit of its clients. Being named to this list is a great validation of those efforts.

The Fundy Ocean Research Center for Energy (FORCE) has incorporated SubC’s Sculpin underwater camera and Aquorea LED Mk2 on the FAST-2 platform. The camera and light will assist in providing feedback and conducting preliminary tests in the Minas Passage, with the goal to ultimately help unlock the energy potential of FORCE.
Off the coast of Vancouver Island, a team of scientists from Fisheries and Oceans Canada is conducting an exploratory mission collecting the first-ever underwater footage of the Union and Dellwood seamounts.
SubC was recently given recognition for its high-quality equipment and one-stop solution for ocean imaging in an article written by Andrew Safer. The article followed a group of ocean scientists as they discussed the challenges of receiving high-quality images in the depths of the ocean as well as the limitations of the past and the advances of current technology. SubC Imaging was praised by ocean scientist Brennan Phillips as a company that offers an all in one solution to imaging and data collection or as he says, “What’s unique about SubC is they produce systems from soup to nuts,” , “from powering and controlling the camera, to processing the data, to storing it topside.”.
Phillips has recently been on an expedition in the Solomon Islands aided by our MK6 4k camera to help him in his research. “SubC’s camera fit right into that requirement. Everything worked flawlessly.” said Brennan when speaking about the advantages of using SubC’s equipment. Brennan also made use of our battery technology to assist in his dives, as he says “Battery power is a huge advantage when you can’t provide surface power to the system”. SubC is proud to assist ocean scientists like Brennan Phillips in their endeavors.
