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.
