RBR was started in 1973 and now employs over 20 people. RBR exports over 70% of its products through a global network of agents in over 17 countries. RBR is currently working on the next generation of software and hardware for oceanographic instruments, with improved performance, better battery life and larger memory capacity. The new instruments also offer considerable scope for system integration as OEM sensors. The platform provides for extension to new applications and products.
Formed in 2010 to develop new optical sensors with an initial product of a high range turbidity sensor. The sensor may be combined with an integral wiper for protection against biofouling. It is also feasible to combine the sensor with fluorescent and nephelometric techniques to give a unique combination sensor without parallel in the industry.
SpectraSense also provides data hosting and system integration services using a wide range of sensor suppliers.
This was established in 2012 to provide an independent sales channel for system integration and complementary products. It operates from the office of RBR UK, situated in Oxfordshire.
Maintained on an island in Little Silver Lake Ontario, near the top of the Tay River watershed, this hectare site offers an ideal place for test of monitoring equipment and has seen the trials of nearly all the oceanographic and freshwater instruments made by RBR. Several experiments are running at any one time and the site is available for staff to use throughout the year for training and family recreation.
