Teledyne Marine Successfully Hosts its Second Technology Workshop - 02/11/2017
Teledyne Marine has successfully hosted its 2017 users’ conference, entitled the Teledyne Marine Technology Workshop (TMTW), from 15-18 October 2017 in San Diego, California. Over 270 customers from around the globe converged in San Diego to attend this workshop, including over 50 customer presentations detailing their utilisation of Teledyne Marine products and technologies for applications spanning offshore energy, defence, ports & harbours, oceanography, aquaculture, dredging, hydrography and hydrology.
The event also included afternoon plenary sessions presented by Teledyne Marine’s OneTeam, which detailed the company’s joint solutions for applications spanning from the surface to the seafloor. These presentations were hosted in concert with a wide array of afternoon brand level product and software training sessions, including a dedicated advanced glider training and a hydrology track.
On-water demonstrations were conducted from two vessels highlighting the group’s collective imaging products. Alongside the boats were twelve dockside demonstrations focussing on Teledyne Marine’s vehicles, sensors, and combined system capabilities. These demonstrations depicted specific joint applications, including civil engineering, port and harbour security, and multi-vehicle collaboration.
The workshop kicked off with two keynote speakers. Oliver Steeds, founder, chief executive and mission director of Nekton, a charitable research institute dedicated to the exploration of the deep ocean, gave an inspired speech on deep sea discoveries and one’s responsibilities as stewards of the oceans. The second keynote speaker, Margaret Leinen, director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, presented an overview of the challenges facing our oceans, offset by some much needed good news about the progress being made in political circles to raise the visibility of our oceans, both domestically and globally.
In addition to the Teledyne Marine brands, fourteen industry partners and suppliers participated in this year’s event, sharing their relevant products and services as official TMTW event exhibitors / sponsors, further broadening the content on display for TMTW attendees to discover.
In 2018, Teledyne Marine plans to host a number of smaller regional TMTW events, with the main event scheduled for 2019.Last updated: 27/02/2018
