R.I.D.E. is an organization founded by Karl Stanley in 2003 with a mission to increase access to the deep sea for the public and researchers by offering affordable trips to depths up to 2500 ft. OutsideInnovation partnered with R.I.D.E. starting in 2011 and since then has completed 3500+ hours of work on numerous deep submergence vehicle projects including: new submersible design, design and construction of replacement parts, autopilot and control systems, routine maintenance, custom experiments for scientists, and independent engineering research including a 4 year study published at the MTS Underwater Intervention Conference in 2017. OutsideInnovation and R.I.D.E. share a true passion for exploration and work together continuously to expand the capabilities of the deep sea exploration industry with a focus on producing high quality submersible systems at a fraction of the standard cost.
