IOOS System Advisory Committee Appointment14/08/2012
|Teledyne Benthosís senior director of business development, Justin Manley, has been appointed for a three-year term to the Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS, USA) System advisory committee. The Integrated Coastal and Ocean Observation System (ICOOS) Act of 2009 established a national integrated system of ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes observing systems, comprised of Federal and non-Federal components including in-situ, remote, and other coastal and ocean observation, technologies, and data management and communication systems.|
The ICOOS Act also requires the under-secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere to establish a system advisory committee to provide advice to the under-secretary and to the Interagency Ocean Observation Committee, which is responsible for planning the integrated design, operation, maintenance, enhancement, and expansion of the system.
Teledyne Benthos and its partners Teledyne Webb Research and Teledyne Gavia provide a diverse portfolio of ocean-observing infrastructure including unmanned vehicles, acoustic positioning and telemetry systems, deep-sea housings and floatation, and acoustic releases. Operating as a group, these Teledyne Marine companies have a unique perspective to offer IOOS.
The system advisory committee will hold its first meeting in Washington DC, USA, on 29 and 30 August 2012.

Demo of RIEGL Airborne Bathy Scanner in Camcopter UAV
It's not an AUV but an 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. For more information on the technical side, please see the news release on Hydro International.
