Oceanscience Receives Award05/05/2008
|Each year Teledyne Scientific & Imaging (TS&I) recognises a partner company that has made major contributions to TS&I's performance. Teledyne Technologies announced the presentation of the 2007 Technology Partner of the Year award to The Oceanscience Group.|
The Oceanscience team of Nick Brower, Stan Hapak, Steve Walsh, Jerry Charles, and founder Dr. Ron George played a critical role in the success of a key Phase 3 DARPA program on Ocean Wave Energy Harvesting using a buoy-mounted generator. The objective was to demonstrate generation of 20 watts of power in a wide range of sea conditions. The Oceanscience team had full responsibility for mechanical and electrical design of the buoy, generators, and all associated data acquisition hardware.
Because of its commercial potential and high visibility (both at DARPA and Teledyne), this was one of the most critical programs for TS&I in 2007. With the DARPA program concluded successfully, Teledyne now has the opportunity to exploit the technology for its product potential. None of this would have been possible without the contribution and dedication of The Oceanscience Group, according to Dr. Larry Meixner, Executive Director of Materials Technology, Teledyne Scientific & Imaging.

Demo of RIEGL Airborne Bathy Scanner in Camcopter UAV
It's not an AUV but a UAV. So an unmanned vehicle, but in the air instead of underwater. This movie shows a demonstration of the bathymetric laser scanning capabilities of the RIEGL VQ-820-GU hydrographic airborne sensor in reality.
