The following exhibitors will be demonstrating their latest innovations in 30-minute product presentations.
Tuesday, Oct. 20
1:30 – 2:00 pm SULIS SUBSEA CORP. – IMAGING
From building the world’s first 3D-HD full-ocean depth camera system for James Cameron’s DEEPSEA CHALLENGER submersible, to creating leading-edge 4K imaging technology for the Schmidt Ocean Institute's new robotic vehicle program, SULIS Subsea Corporation is revolutionizing the way scientists, explorers, and filmmakers share their discoveries with the world.
In 2011, SULIS’s founder, Adam Gobi, designed the entire imaging pathway for the DEEPSEA CHALLENGER, including multiple 3D HD and 5K camera systems, pilot-screen imaging, camera control, and recording subsystems. At any single time, the sub would be imaging and recording 7 different camera feeds, and handling database rates in excess of 15 gigabits per second.
Now we offer the same level of imaging capability for underwater vehicles worldwide. Our showcase will feature our latest deep-sea innovations, including 4K cameras, the Z70 and H100, our hybrid lighting system, Hyllum, and our compact 4K video processing/recording solution, the Brain box.

3:00 – 3:30 pm PREVCO SUBSEA LLC
Prevco Subsea are using Ceramic for subsea vessels and we are the first company to do this on a commercial basis. We’re excited about the opportunities, especially for deep sea use, as there are many benefits to using this material.
Ceramic, although brittle on impact, is a remarkably strong substance under pressure, where its strength increases with depth, making it a strong but lightweight alternative to other materials.
Benefits include a lighter in-water weight than Titanium, it is non-magnetic, has low electrical and high thermal conductivity and corrosion resistance.
The nature of Ceramic may limit its uses, however for the right application, it could be the perfect alternative to heavier, more costly materials.
We’ll explain more about the pros and cons of this technology at our presentation and you can visit our site www.prevco.com for more information.
3:45 – 4:15 pm TELEDYNE ODI
Teledyne Oil & Gas will display and demonstrate their Active Flying Lead technology. The demonstration will include live streaming data through different Teledyne designed electronics. Each product allows for a different distance to be reached. Full scale models of the Subsea media converter housing as well as the Ethernet Repeater will be demonstrated.
9:30 – 10:00 am ROWE TECHNOLOGY – Our new SeaSEVEN ADCP Product
ADCP technology developed by Fran ROWE about 35 years ago, was originally spun off from the Doppler radar used for lunar landings.
The newest innovative ADCPs developed by ROWE Technologies Inc. for underwater applications now use seven beams and dual frequencies to collect data which allow scientists to gather many more types of measurements about the characteristics in ocean water columns.
This presentation regarding ROWE Technologies Inc.’s new product, SeaSEVEN will demonstrate how a user can collect information used in seven fields of research: Waves, Tides, Turbulence, Reynolds Stress, Bottom Boundary Layer, Sediment Transport, and Renewable Energy.
11:00 – 11:30 am KONGSBERG UNDERWATER TECHNOLOGY
Kongsberg Maritime provides the ocean technology industry with a variety of novel tools and techniques to both observe conditions as accurately as possible and promote new discoveries through integrated solutions. In 2015 Kongsberg introduced several new technologies to this end. One product we are proud to presenting at the Oceans 2015 Product Theater, is the Maritime Broadband Radio (MBR). Exceeding 50 km range the MBR is a revolutionary advance in interconnectivity of maritime operations. IP connectivity secures seamless interaction, exchange, and sharing of data between assets, as well as offers streaming of HD video and voice without adding conventional communications infrastructure. Easily deployable units create a unique solution for maritime networking. The MBR connects crews and their vessels using a high speed, high capacity digital communication channel. Applications span from coastal and offshore surveillance to remote seafloor mapping, fisheries enforcement, spill response operations, and many more yet envisioned.
1:30 – 2:00 pm AML OCEANOGRAPHIC LTD
Established in 1974, AML Oceanographic of British Columbia, Canada designs and manufactures oceanographic instrumentation and sensors. AML’s award-winning UV•Xchange and Cabled UV, the industry’s only proven UV biofouling control products, enhance in-situ CTD performance and prevent fouling on other subsea equipment. UV•Xchange and Cabled UV bathe critical surfaces in ultraviolet light, keeping the desired area clean and sensor data accurate. Unlike other existing methods of biofouling control, UV•Xchange inhibits marine growth without contact or chemical pollution, and is suitable for surfaces of complex geometry.
AML Oceanographic will present Ocean Network Canada's (ONC) installation of sensors protected by UV•Xchange, located at the Folger Pinnacle observation site. The longest deployment to date conducted by a third party, it is approaching two years of impressive results. Analysis done by ONC scientists will be presented along with an assessment of the remaining challenges and future direction of UV-based antifouling.
2:15 – 2:45 pm TELEDYNE MARINE
The Diver6 System is a new maritime tracking technology that utilizes Teledyne Benthos Modem communications, significantly enhancing diving command, control, and safety. As a supplemental resource, Diver6 assists Dive Supervisors in monitoring and tracking providing unparalleled situational awareness. Diver6 is proudly made in the USA.
Diver6 provides up to date information on the divers in the water allowing the dive master to make faster, safer, and more accurate decisions.
Using hardware and software designed and manufactured by Azimuth Inc, Diver data is transmitted via a Teledyne Benthos acoustic modem to a receiving unit on the surface. Data is then transmitted to a monitoring computer that records, calculates, and displays various parameters. This allows a dive master to closely track each diver's status, depth and location.
Diver6 enables a dive master to create a dive plan that assists in the monitoring and management of diving operations. All monitoring aspects of the dive are recorded and can be used for later analysis and audit.
The system is based on input from a broad range of real-world subject matter experts including: US Navy SEALs, EOD, Salvage Divers, Coast Guard, public safety and commercial divers.
Azimuth Inc. is the engineering designer and manufacturer of hardware and software for the Diver6 System. Azimuth is an OEM for Teledyne Benthos.

3:45 – 4:15 pm TELEDYNE RESON
Thursday, Oct. 22
9:30 – 10:00 am SONARDYNE, INC
With offshore survey work moving to ever greater depths there is more demand to position subsea vehicles accurately and reliably at distances of up to 10km. At these ranges conventional USBL performance is limited by the surface ship noise which must be overcome by the highly attenuated acoustic signal emanating from the remote acoustic transponder affixed to the target a long way away. Adopting different signal frequencies, increasing transmitted source level, improvements to USBL receiver sensitivity, digital signal processing and beam focusing can all help improve range performance but there is now a more attractive option.
Placing an iUSBL transceiver on the subsea target instead of beneath the ship has the effect of removing it from the significant ship generated acoustic noise field. Since its local is environment is then much quieter and its motion more stable, overall system performance can be significantly improved.
10:15 – 10:45 am ENERGY SALES, INC
Underwater applications requiring the use of portable power face a number of significant challenges not experienced in batteries designed for terrestrial applications. The most daunting is the un-relenting effects of seawater pressure that will crush a traditional battery instantly. The solution generally requires the use of a pressure housing -- sometimes at great expense.
Energy Sales, Sunnyvale, California, in conjunction with the University of Washington’s School of Oceanography – Applied Physics Laboratory, is pleased to announce a pressure tolerant alkaline battery pack (oil filled in a PVC housing), has been designed and pressure tested to 10K (psig). For many applications this solution could a game changer, especially in the case of grant proposals.
Energy Sales will be presenting a 30 minute presentation on Thursday morning at 10:15 to introduce this new battery design. The presentation will consist of a slide show and question period introducing our new pressure tolerant alkaline battery pack.
