Welcome

Welcome to CLS Oceania’s dedicated website. CLS Oceania is an Australian company that is representative of our CLS headquarters in France.

CLS is a global company and pioneer provider of monitoring and surveillance solutions for the Earth, created in 1986. We are subsidiary of the French Space Agency (CNES) and CNP, an investment firm. Our mission is to create innovative space-based solutions to understand and protect our planet and to manage its resources sustainably. CLS employs 720 people at our headquarters in Toulouse (France) and in 25 other sites around the world including Melbourne and Hobart. The company works in five strategic markets: sustainable fisheries management, environmental monitoring, maritime surveillance, fleet management, and energy & mining. CLS processes data from 100,000 transponders per month (such as drifting buoys, animal tags, VMS transponders, & LRIT tracking) and observes the oceans and inland waters (more than 20 instruments onboard satellites daily deliver information to CLS on the world’s seas and oceans). In addition, we monitor land and sea activities by satellite (nearly 10,000 radar images and several hundred drone flights are processed each year).

CLS Oceania specializes in sales, service and maintenance of oceanographic and water quality equipment as well as offering a suite of sattelite telemetry services. We represent a number of key, market leading international manufacturers in Australia bringing the latest technology to our clients. As extensive users of the instruments ourselves (in over 50 countries to date), we support our clients with hands on experience – recommending, tailoring and delivering equipment to meet their exact needs, whilst supporting them with exceptional after sales support.

After 18 years of successfully delivering oceanographic equipment to clients all over Australia, every State and Territory, CLS is a dedicated site better informing and bringing our clients closer to our agencies.
