What We Do

Palaemus Oceanic, LLC, is an ocean technology company focused on advancing the field of connected maritime sensing. By partnering with prime contractors, academia, and government research agencies, we bring to market novel approaches for power, communications, materials, and manufacturing. We seek to bridge the gap between research and practical application and provide advanced solutions for battlespace sensing, oceanography, research, and commercial cost savings.

With 80% of the oceans unexplored, we believe there is an opportunity to greatly improve our understanding of what’s going on in the ocean environment through a connected, integrated network of sensors that are survivable, persistent, accurate, and expendable.
Palaemus has experience in the design of underwater enclosures, sensor and electronics packaging for marine environments, thermal management, stress/strain analysis, material and coating selection, and prototype/test.

Located just two hours from the coast in the tech hub of Raleigh, North Carolina, Palaemus is part of an innovative environment driven by Research Triangle Park. We have access to some of the best engineering talent in the country, as well as partnership opportunities with complimentary businesses and individuals – and three world class universities located at our doorstep. This puts us in a unique position to be a flexible organization that’s ready to take on the challenges that come with driving innovation. Coupled with our uniquely applicable skill set of maritime systems design for defense applications, SBIR and STTR experience, and commercial knowledge, Palaemus is ready to advance maritime sensing technology.


Our leadership consists not only of having a clear vision for the company that puts Palaemus in the best position for success, but also in our advisory resources.

We have strong relationships with individuals in the maritime industry at the defense, government research, academic, and commercial levels, and we leverage these relationships to seek out new opportunities for development.

At Palaemus, our primary leadership objective behind serving our customers is to develop our people and put them in the best position for success. We thrive on offering up challenging, engaging work for our engineers and instill a sense of ownership at all levels of the organization.

The Palaemus Name

Palaemon (or Palaimon) was a sea-god in Greek mythology who came to the aid of sailors in distress and was known as a protector of mariners on the open ocean.  The Romans associated him with Portunus, “god of the harbor.”

Our name is derived from Palaemon’s, and is reflective of our objective to deepen our understanding of the ocean – and protecting those that work on it.
