We help researchers create knowledge in the coldest, harshest, environments on earth.
Doing science is hard and expensive. Our specialty is creating autonomous equipment to do the work for you. We have extensive experience with electrical and mechanical device design, custom embeded control electronics, Iridium satellite communication, and cold weather packaging solutions for operation in extreme environments.
The Cryosphere consists of some of Earths most inhospitable environments. Corrosive, cold, and remote -- knowledge generation in cryospheric conditions presents plenty of unique challenges. We address these challenges in all aspects of our work, from device design to transportation logistics to recovery. Our knowledge base extends beyond just what it takes to make good products, but what it takes to get good data.
As engineers and tech geeks at heart, our passion lies in creating tools that work well awesome. We leverage advanced modeling, design, and manufacturing techniques to deliver high performance design solutions. Our expertise includes FEM and CFD modeling, 3D printing, quick-turn PCB manufacturing, embedded software programming, and high-speed CNC machining.
Whether you’re looking for a standard instrument like SIMB3 or custom device, we’re here to help. We’ll work with you to define your requirements and build a product that fits your needs, your budget, and your timeline.
We want your data collection endeavor to be successful. We’ll consult your deployment strategy and manage your data. For our Iridium connected devices, we have servers set up to process and host data from our instruments in real time.
How do you retrieve your device? What if it needs repair after a field season? How do I interpret these artifacts in the data? Our support continues before, during, and after deployment.
CRYOSPHERE INNOVATION CUSTOMERS BENEFIT FROM
Our team has extensive experience conducting field work and experimentation in cold environments. We combine this with years of experience with product design and engineering to create products that fulfill your data collection requirements.
Whether you're working in the Arctic, the Antarctic, Greenland, or anywhere else around the globe-- the collective resources and knowledge of our network of partners is deep. From deployment opportunities to logistics, we frequently leverage our network to help our partners get their work done fast and effectively.
Generating data is one thing, drawing conclusions from it can be another. Our technical and scientific knowledge and data processing toolkits can help you interpret the information our instruments report within a greater scientific context.
Cryosphere Innovation creates tools for observing Earth's most inhospitable environments. Founded in 2017 by Cameron Planck and James Whitlock, our mission is to develop tools that help improve the understanding of the natural world.
