Latest Teledyne Marine Technology Advancements for Scripps Users

Teledyne Marine will host a luncheon to introduce several new technology advancement relevant to Scripps Scientists and Engineers.  The session will be segmented by product line, so attendees can choose to attend one or both presentations, depending upon area(s) of interest.

 Lunch items and refreshments will be served.

 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm
Introducing Teledyne RDI’s New Pinnacle, Long-Range ADCP / Q&A Building upon the 20-year success of their industry-standard Long Ranger ADCP, Teledyne RDI is pleased to introduce their next generation long range ADCP.  The Pinnacle is a 45 kHz phased array ADCP capable of profiling ocean current to 1000m, with a product footprint typically associated with ADCPs achieving half that range.  The new Pinnacle is loaded with cool new features and leading-edge technology.  We look forward to sharing all of these with you, along with some recent data sets.

 12:30 pm – 1:00 pm
Teledyne Benthos Acoustic Modems – Capabilities & Case Studies Teledyne Benthos ATM-900 Series Acoustic Telemetry Modems are the culmination of over twenty years of experience in the design and manufacture of advanced acoustic communication technology. Thousands of Benthos acoustic modems are in use worldwide for academic, defense, and commercial applications. Join us as we dive into this technology, and share several interesting case studies, including the ability to communicate with and track the location of underwater platforms.

 Teledyne’s staff will be available after the seminar if you would like to schedule a private meeting or a visit to your lab.  To schedule in advance, please contact Gwen Nero

The Scripps Technical Forum (STF) is a grassroots effort to make technical expertise and resources more widely available within the UCSD/Scripps community; to enhance communications between technical staff and departments; explore extended opportunities for interdepartmental collaboration, technology transfer, and industry interactions; to explore innovative solutions to emerging challenges; to monitor and disseminate trends and new technologies; and, aid in personnel retention and enhance job satisfaction, including continuing education, and opportunities for job growth.

The group is open to anyone within SIO and UCSD interested in applied technology. We host a semi-monthly midday meeting with free food and an interesting program of presentations given by members of the community and industry.
