Hawkes Ocean Technologies

Hawkes Ocean Technologies

Hawkes Ocean Technologies (HOT) was founded in 1997 as a skunkworks to develop state of the art vehicles for deep ocean exploration. Founder, Graham Hawkes, a world-renowned engineer, has spent over forty years introducing innovative solutions for deep ocean access. Over the last few years, the Company has built submersibles for venture capitalist, Tom Perkins, Sir Richard Branson, and the world's only full ocean depth submersible for the late adventurer Steve Fossett. The Company is currently working on several projects with the US military, as well as designing/building submersibles for record-breaking dives, and organizing scientific and adventure expeditions to various locations around the world. Hawkes Ocean Technologies spun out two sister companies, Hawkes Ocean Sports, which provides the DeepFlight submersibles for recreation and tourism and Hawkes Remotes Inc., which is introducing a new generation of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs). Hawkes Ocean Technologies is a privately-held company based in the San Francisco Bay area.
