SST provided systems engineering, site survey, anchor and mooring analysis and design and mechanical design to the Lockheed Martin Ocean Thermal Energy (OTEC) pilot project for the US Navy.

SST designed the STAFAC vertical bistatic array moorings, installation and handling systems and oversaw the installation in the Tongue of the Ocean (4000 foot depth).
