Our Approach


SAIS strives to design the most robust solutions at the best value for our customers. Our products are designed, fabricated and assembled in-house in California, USA by SAIS engineers, machinists and technicians. Every device is tested to its rated depth in our in-house pressure testing facility before shipment.




SubAqua Imaging Systems designs and manufactures cameras and lights for use underwater, however, our abilities extend to anything that needs to be placed underwater in a secure and robust housing.
As a small firm, SAIS is uniquely positioned to meet the needs of many scientists, engineers and professionals in the marine industry. By keeping our size small and our overhead low, SAIS is able to offer a variety of specialized design services for custom items that are needed in small or limited quantities. There are many times when larger firms cannot or will not tackle exactly these types of small projects that are so prevalent in this industry.
Custom projects have included, general purpose housings, ROV components, Ethernet switches and router junction boxes, temperature sensors, heart rate monitors for marine mammals and topside recording and live-streaming stations.
