Featured in ECO Mag: Deep-Sea Exploration with the SBE 49 FastCAT

ECO Mag Feature

We were excited to be featured in ECO magazine’s latest digital edition of their Deep-Sea Exploration series.

In the spring of 2018, Triton Submarines reached out to the team at Sea-Bird Scientific, to express interest in using our SBE 49 FastCAT CTD (conductivity, temperature, and density) sensor, renowned for its stability and accuracy, for an upcoming project involving a manned submersible.

In this project, Victor Vescovo, an American private equity investor, retired naval officer, sub-orbital spaceflight participant, and undersea explorer, looked to execute the first expedition to reach the five deepest points on the Earth: the Puerto Rico Trench in the Atlantic, South Sandwich Trench in the Southern Ocean, Java Trench in the Indian Ocean, Challenger Deep in the Pacific, and Molloy Deep in the Arctic. 

Alongside the Triton and Sea-Bird Scientific teams, Vescovo brought together leaders in oceanographic instrumentation from around the globe.  These fundamental partnerships led to the creation of Vescovo’s literal and figurative vessel as he attempted to break numerous world records in deep sea exploration through the build of his DSV (Deep-Submergence Vehicle) in what became known as the Five Deeps Expedition.
