Oceaneering Technologies (OTECH)

OTECH designs, builds, and operates unique maritime and specialized systems for government, military, and commercial customers. Engineering expertise coupled with extensive offshore experience enables development of pragmatic solutions and delivery of reliable systems.

We specialize in the design of equipment operated in harsh environments by engineering solutions that effectively manage the impacts caused by bio-fouling, corrosion, and long-term exposure.


We work with the Office of Naval Research to develop cutting-edge technology used to support U.S. Navy capability objectives, including the Large Vessel Interface Lift On/Lift Off (LVI Lo/Lo), Interface Ramp Technologies (IRT), Advanced Mooring System (AMS) and Joint Universal Causeway Interface Modules (JUCIMs).

Submarine Rescue Solutions

For more than two decades, we have supported submarine rescue operations by building key components and modifying existing equipment to meet U.S. Navy requirements for mission-critical, life-saving applications.

Additional Specialized Capabilities

We are experienced in the design, fabrication, operation, and certification of saturation (SAT) diving systems, launch and recovery systems, commercial developments for hull cleaning and pipeline inspection.

FireDrill Skin Penetrator Agent Applicator Tool (SPAAT)

Demonstrating our engineering and manufacturing expertise, this patented, field-proven firefighting tool fights fires in aircraft fuselages, marine hulls, ISO containers, semi-trailers, buildings, and other compartmented structures.


Our onsite manufacturing capability supports cost effectiveness through real-time oversight and control of project scopes and progress. Collaboration with engineers and customers during the design process improves manufacturability and reduces production costs. We maintain an ISO 9001:2008-certified Quality Management System that guarantees quick responses and precision work.   


Oceaneering is a SeaPort-e prime contract holder in all seven geographic regions.

Company page Since our founding in the early 1960s, Oceaneering has expanded and grown globally to service several industries such as the offshore energy industry, defense, entertainment, material handling, aerospace, science, and renewable energy industries. In 1964, Mike Hughes and Johnny Johnson formed a Gulf of Mexico diving company called World Wide Divers. The company grew in response to increasing demand for their services and in 1969 merged with two other diving companies to form Oceaneering International, Inc. To solve the toughest challenges, we do things differently, creatively, and smarter. As your trusted partner, our unmatched experience and truly innovative portfolio of technologies and solutions give us the flexibility to adapt and evolve, regardless of market conditions. Our mission is to solve the unsolvable. We thrive by creating industry-changing technically creative solutions for the most complex operational challenges under water, on land, and in space. Our five core values establish a common culture and demonstrate what is most important for us as a company. Since the beginning, the company has transformed from a small regional diving company into a global provider of engineered products and services. Today, we develop products and services for use throughout the lifecycle of an offshore oilfield, from drilling to decommissioning. We operate the world's premier fleet of work class ROVs. Additionally, we are a leader in offshore oilfield maintenance services, umbilicals, subsea hardware, and tooling. We also serve the aerospace, defense, and theme park industries. Underpinning everything we do, safety is not only the foundation of our core values, but it is vital to our unmatched performance record and company culture. The industries we serve are as diverse as they are complex. Whether we are engineering deepwater umbilicals or developing robotics for aerospace applications, the safety and health of our employees, vendors, and customers is an integral part of our day-to-day business. If we are working, then our responsibility is to be working safely. Since our inception in 1964, we have placed a high value on employee safety—from diving services and subsea inspection to vessel-based installation operations. We have and will continue to evolve not only our health, safety, and environmental (HSE) processes, but those of the industries in which we work. Although we have been fatality-free since 1999, our HSE journey goes beyond statistics. As our portfolio of services has grown, we have continued to prioritize and advance our approach to HSE.
