Lander, carrier and free-fall systems

When it comes to placing surveying stations on the sea bed, so-called landers are used. Depending on their size, they offer space for a wide range of integral components and can be lowered in free-fall. Oktopus designs and builds carrier systems such as the Ocean Floor Observation System (OFOS) for this purpose. Of course, we also hold the suitable components and telemetries in our range.

Lander up to 10,000 m
You are looking for flexible carrier systems for sea marks or want to carry out long-term observations and analyses on the sea floor? Then landers are just what you are looking for. Carrier systems in tried-and-tested design available either as free-fall systems (only basic on-board equipment necessary) or for video-guided lowering in 3 basic configurations. They comprise 3, 4 and 6 pillar designs. Based on your parameters (e.g. in terms of loading capacity, storage volume, drive components and residual buoyancy), we can offer you an optimal solution in a range of weight classes. Thanks to the use of the OktoMF system every lander can be flexibly configured. Components can be easily and safely added.
We also supply optional release mechanisms for return to surface (time- or event-controlled), video-guided lowering frames and buoyancy for deployment depth down to 10,000 m.
