Our Organization

In 2013, Sea-Bird Scientific reorganized to provide more focused support for its expanding customer base. We now provide products and services through two commercial businesses:

The Ocean Research Business Unit works with our research and oceanographic customer base and remains the source of most of the core products and services of Sea-Bird Electronics, WET Labs, and Satlantic. It also manages the firms’ growing capabilities in autonomous platforms and sensors.

The Sea-Bird Coastal Business Unit addresses the emerging requirements for improved monitoring of the world’s coastal margin zones and inland waters.
