Hydroid – August First Friday

August 2 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am

Hydroid's Steve Brodet

Located in the U.S. and a subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime, Hydroid is the world’s most trusted manufacturer of advanced Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). Our marine robotics systems provide innovative and reliable full-picture solutions for the marine research, defense, hydrographic and offshore/energy markets. For more information on our technologies, please visit www.hydroid.com.

Ocean exploration has traditionally been dominated by surface ship technology. As a field-proven technology leader in autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), Hydroid’s REMUS line of vehicles are changing the game.

Hydroid AUVs can dive to depths of 6,000 meters, explore shallow waters and hover in hazardous areas where navigation is difficult. These vehicles reduce the high cost of ocean exploration and sampling, while increasing the availability of scientific marine data.

Hydroid AUVs have been involved with undersea mine countermeasures that have helped save lives by eliminating human divers from mine fields and have helped solve plane and ship disaster mysteries, including locating Air France Flight 447 wreckage and generating 3D mapping of the Titanic. Our vehicles offer scientists a new view on pressing global issues including climate change, the world’s declining fish population and environmental disasters.

Steve Brodet is an Applications Engineer with Hydroid, Inc. In this role, Steve works to develop and transition emerging payload and navigation technologies into the fleet of Hydroid’s REMUS Autonomous Underwater Vehicles. Prior to working with Hydroid, Steve was with the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) office of Coast Survey where he tested and transitioned emerging technologies, including REMUS AUV’s,  to NOAA’s Hydrographic Survey fleet.
