Teledyne Marine has entered into a five-year contract with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to provide a range of products from across the company’s portfolio that will support the agency’s diverse initiatives. The USGS is tasked with providing science about the natural hazards that threaten lives and livelihoods; the water, energy, minerals, and other natural resources; the health of our ecosystems and environment; and the impacts of climate and land-use change.

The contract includes the supply of Teledyne Oceanscience unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) for remote controlled surveys and data collection, as well as related payloads. These include Teledyne RD Instruments Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) for current profiling, stream monitoring and discharge measurements, and Teledyne RESON and Teledyne ODOM multibeam and single beam sonars for high-resolution hydrographic surveys.

Teledyne Marine has been supplying the USGS with technology to support their endeavors for over 20 years, and the expansion of offering in this latest contract emphasizes Teledyne’s ongoing commitment to support the agency in their mission critical endeavors.

Mike Read, President of Teledyne Marine, commented: “Teledyne Marine looks forward to continuing our long-standing service to the USGS by providing them with the leading-edge tools and technology they need to conduct critical science and environmental monitoring. The use of our instrumentation and vehicles will enable better decisions and policies impacting the United States, its natural resources, and the natural hazards that threaten it. We’re honored to play a continued and substantial role in this important work.”
