Join us for our first session in the MOTN Speaker Series 2020! We will be convening at the former WEBB Research Building at 82 Technology Park Drive, Falmouth, Ma 02536. The event will take place on Thursday, January 30th from 5:30 PM-7:00 PM.
The agenda is as follows:
- Nick Lowell of Lowell Instruments, LLC- Lowell Instruments was founded in 2012 to provide advanced data loggers (tilt current meters), software and instrumentation to the international scientific and engineering community. Tilt Current Meters are a reliable, affordable and accurate way to measure water velocity and temperature. They are used in a wide range of applications by scientists in aquaculture, lakes & ponds, coral reefs, estuaries, caves and deep oceans. They have a simple, rugged low maintenance design, that are easy for all aspects of field research.
- Peter Furey of Furey Software- Furey Software has been providing software engineering services to the marine robotics and oceanographic community since 2003.
- Norman Farr of Lumasys, Inc.– Lumasys develops high bandwidth, low power underwater optical communications systems using LED based blue light. Their optical modem system operates wirelessly through the water. It allows scientists to upload large amounts of data and transmit video in near real-time from seafloor sensors. Their systems are engineered to help scientists quickly recover data after it is collected from ocean depths.
- Ray Schmidt of Neil Brown Ocean Sensors – NBOS was founded in 2003 by WHOI scientist Ray Schmitt, WHOI engineer Bob Petitt and the late Neil Brown with the mission of developing a new generation of CTD technology suited to the unique requirements of mobile platforms. Our core products are a cabled conductivity and temperature sensor for AUVs and a hull-mounted conductivity, temperature and pressure sensor for AUVs and gliders. Both of these products are available in a range of standard mechanical configurations and data interfaces.
- Paul Dugas of Integrity Ocean Systems- Integrity Systems has been servicing the oceanographic industry for nearly 16 years. Services include: fabrication, electronic testing and calibration, chassis wiring, cable assembly, circuit board assembly, instrument manufacturing, etc.
- Dan Webb of Float Realty Trust- Owner of technology park building where people work daily designing and manufacturing scientific instruments for oceanographic research and monitoring of climate change, with a rooftop photovoltaic electricity in a single story industrial facility. As a research institution, one of the main drivers for the project was to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through renewable energy use. He is also the owner of Notus Clean Energy LLC.
- Jim Preisig of JP Analytics, LLC – JP Analytics works with clients in the defense, intelligence, and commercial sectors to create innovative solutions to challenging signal processing problems and analyze proposed systems and solutions. They apply research directions, propose and develop programs, and conducts research in the areas of interest to clients. They have broad experience in adaptive signal processing, signal detection and analysis, and specifically underwater acoustic communications.
