Diving deep to develop innovative solutions.

The deep ocean is an environment completely unfriendly to mankind, with pressures too great for traditional exploration methods. To collect data, scientific research institutions need equipment that can track and monitor changing conditions—while enduring cold temperatures, corrosion, abrasion, fish bite, bend and tension cycling, compression and more. Standard off-the-shelf products simply won’t do.

Deep ocean research demands alternative approaches—innovative cable and rope designs, improved quality control, and specialist materials. Cortland has assisted the research community and designed products to work and survive in this very tough environment.
