Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration

Design. Build. Explore.

Engineers, videographers, data specialists, and educators. We are the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration. Our team designs, builds, and operates robotic platforms that explore the most extreme underwater environments on the planet—from the deep ocean to the largest lakes. We share our discoveries with the public through our education and outreach activities.
