MTRMTR 100 100The Case: The Case: Battelle?s Maritime Systems group provides customized hardware development, engineering services, product manufacturing and support. It can bring purpose built solutions to the most dif cult technology challenges in the maritime environment especially addressing submersibles, persistence, life cycle engineering and sensors. The CompanyAt major technology centers and na-tional laboratories around the world, Battelle conducts cutting-edge research and development, designs and manufac- tures products, and delivers critical ser- vices for government and commercial customers. Battelle, the world?s largest independent research and development organization, is headquartered in Co- lumbus, Ohio. Founded in 1929, Battelle operates in three broad areas: National Security; Energy, Health and Environ- ment; and Laboratory Management. It offers a full service line of products and system development to enhance the ef-  ciency and affordability of maritime operations. It provides engineering so- lutions and systems for maritime and underwater applications. Its high-speed data communicators, oil spill detection and tracking systems, and autonomous sensor systems are just some of the mar- itime technologies that will help provide safe, accurate exploration and monitor- ing in harsh environments. A wholly owned subsidiary of Battelle, Blue n Robotics, manufactures unmanned un- dersea vehicles (UUVs). The Tech  Submersibles: Battelle?s strengths are technology development and  elding customized systems. The company lever- ages extensive experience in engineering undersea vehicles and subcomponents to offer nearly limitless possibilities for un- dersea vehicles, including greater depth, larger battery size or any number of spe- cialized recon gurations. The advanced capabilities of our Proteus Dual-Mode Undersea Vehicle platform also enable increased autonomy and endurance for longer and more complex missions.  Persistence: Battelle?s UUV Docking and Recharging Station (UDRS) keeps submersibles at depth longer and reduces turnaround time to extend underwater mission performance for safer, more ef-  cient and more discreet operations.  Life Cycle Engineering: Battelle aims to help keep costs down by providing technology refreshment throughout a system?s lifecycle and extending system maintenance cycles to maximize long- term investments and reduce total own- ership cost of maritime technologies. Sensors: Battelle designs, manufac- tures, produces and distributes ocean sensors for a variety of commercial and military applications. Sensors such as Battelle?s Seaology pCO2monitoring system have been used by National Oce- anic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) since 2009 to support its Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) and measure CO2 in maritime environments. Testing Capabilities: Battelle-owned and ?operated-facilities for maritime and subsea research are located at six primary locations and in-clude a variety of testing capabilities, including: Columbus, OH ?Research pool; pres-sure chambers to 30,000 psi; wet and spectroscopic analytical chemistry labo-ratories; shock, vibration and fatigue testing; electronics, electro-optics and software laboratories.
