There’s no point in just blindly undertaking science for the sake of it, there has to be a plan, and a plan that can help make a difference. Much of that starts with data collection, and is honed down into specific science that gets requested by the academic community.
Our approach is to provide general science as part of our core one mission, more explicitly focused deep ocean science for our core two mission and a more broad range of science data acquisition if we are able to undertake the third mission.
You can learn a lot more about our mission intentions by having a look at our mission descriptions here.

Core One Mission
Our primary driver for our core mission is reporting; but reporting needs to be fact-based and we are therefore proposing the following science approach during our core one mission:
- pH sample measurements
- Oxygenation measurements
- Pollutant measurements
- Specific micro-plastic science detection and measurement
- Core fish sounding (count) measurement
- Measurements performed a varying depths
A primary focus on core one science missions taken in the deep oceans, with a view to focusing on pollutant detection and sample collection. We will work with university partners to hone the specific requirements more formally to meet research goals, and provide the data gathered for free to all.
We are still developing a science plan for mission three, as it is the least likely to happen mission (due to cost), but will provide greater detail here if we are likely to start the mission.
