Accelerating the availability of critical ocean information.
Ocean information transmission and analysis is crucial to storm forecasting, climate modeling, ecological sustainability, building the blue economy, and naval operations. Hefring is putting the capability to collect high quality information in more hands – from single scientist users to institutions desiring to deploy large fleets with greater coverage.
Software + Hardware.
One powerful new tool.
A platform built with modern electronics and cloud-native control allows us to accommodate ML algorithms, AI, and edge processing to accelerate ocean information availability and the use of gliders in operational oceanography.Plan Your Mission

Create something and make an impact.
The future is now when it comes to our oceans. Would you like to step right into the rapidly growing blue economy and support those developing alternative energy sources, protecting marine life, communicating subsea, and planning for climate change?Get in touch!
See Oceanscout at COVE Demo Day 2023!
We will be at COVE Demo Day with Oceanscout on display. Since COVE’s demonstration areas were too shallow or not visible enough for a glider demonstration, weather permitting, we will be communicating with a live glider, Gimli, with our mission control software while he is swimming in the ocean offshore our facility in Gloucester, MA. Come see Oceanscout Gimli as he follows the mission we plan and sends us CTD and passive acoustic information. Get a feel for the software and how easy setting up your own glider mission can be!
Live webinar! Learn how passive acoustic measurements work
Chris Jones, acoustician and passive acoustic monitoring (PAM) subject matter expert presents a tutorial on how PAM works under water, including applications in marine mammal monitoring, wind and rain measurements, and shipping activity. He will describe the components of PAM systems, explain how measurements are made and various platforms used, and discuss what it takes to ensure good quality measurements.
Join Hefring at Oceanology International 2022
Join Hefring at Oceanology International in London this March! The all new Passive Acoustic Monitoring (PAM) OceanScout glider will be on display. Get a sneak peek at the software and speak to us about your upcoming projects that may benefit from low cost, easily deployable autonomous platforms.
Oceanscout featured in Unmanned Systems Technology magazine
Peter Donaldson finds out how this buoyancy-driven UUV removes the key barriers to widespread scientific research in our oceans.
Gloucester celebrates Hefring Engineering’s ribbon cutting
The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce along with the Mayor of Gloucester, Senator Bruce Tarr, and the Gloucester Harbormaster gave us the warmest of welcomes to the neighborhood at our official ribbon cutting ceremony.
