First Descent is a series of expeditions combining innovations in technology, AI, big data and communications, in a bold bid to accelerate the scientific exploration and conservation of the Indian Ocean, the world’s least explored and least protected ocean.
How the Indian Ocean changes in the coming decades will profoundly affect the lives, livelihoods and wellbeing of 2.5billion living in the region.
First Descent begins in the Seychelles and continues with other expeditions across the Indian Ocean. First Descent: Indian Ocean concludes with the State of the Indian Ocean Summit in 2022 in Oxford.
Teledyne Marine supplies the expedition with Software and essential sonar, camera, light, and navigation technology.
