R&D Study Group: Developing New Technology for ROVs & AUVs
We will have two speakers discussing new technology development for ROV's and AUV's. Dr. Weinschenk from Penn State will describe the Penn State Applied Research Lab’s nationally unique infrastructure for deep ocean testing and associated core competencies in Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), high energy density air-independent propulsion, synthetic aperture sonar, and autonomous control systems. Michael Greene from Teledyne Oil & Gas will introduce the concept of Active Flying Leads, how one simple concept turned into a family of products, and share why it is vital to the future of subsea oil production. Michael will also describe how this new class of products can be used for both green fields and brown fields and the challenges that will be faced. His talk will be followed by a question and answer session.
