Open Ocean Robotics is a marine robotics and software company providing autonomous data collection and analytics as a subscription and service. Using uncrewed solar-powered boats, they deliver real-time data analytics necessary to monitor, protect and operate on our ocean. These autonomous boats stay on the ocean for months at a time continuously monitoring the environment for risks to marine life and maritime security. This provides a critical solution for safeguarding marine protected areas (MPAs), protecting marine mammals and securing waters from crime including illegal fishing, smuggling, human trafficking and threats to critical infrastructure. As a leader in marine robotics and data analytics with proprietary technology in autonomous vessel design, machine learning, and software development, as well as proprietary datasets of ocean conditions, sounds and images, Open Ocean Robotics is able to provide an unparalleled level of ocean insights.
The company produces exceptional handcrafted artisanal spirits. Shelter Point was established in 2011 and is located on 380 acres near Campbell River, BC, about halfway up the eastern coast of Vancouver Island. Shelter Point has skilled craftspeople that use traditional Scottish distilling methods and a state-of-the-art facility. The result is a world-class distillery that produces whiskey, vodka, gin and sunshine liqueur.
