Our oceans are under threat and to understand their health we need data from around the world.

As a NASA (SBIR) project, Horizon was designed to study microscopic particles at a speed never before possible.

Connected to a vessels' plumbing, the laser scattering system can detect particles in the water as ships travel the seas. Such data can now provide a macro picture to a micro world.

Design considerations were made to support durability, portability, drainage, security, access for maintenance, harsh working environments, low volume production, and more.

Andrew is an American Canadian Industrial Designer based in Seattle, Washington. Studio works and services include a diverse array of consumer, electronics, medical, and commercial products that address user, client, market, social, and environmental demands.
