The OSC System is the result of a Franco-German collaboration.
It was developed by a consortium bringing together manufacturers (SailingOne in France and SubCtech in Germany) and internationally renowned scientific institutes (IFREMER and Météo-France).
It is the alliance of high technology at the service of scientific research.
It can be installed on board all types of boats.
The Franco-German Prize for the Economy was awarded to the OSC System in 2013.
