Underwater Intervention International Conference 2011



Engineers, manufacturers, project managers, operations chiefs, program directors and decision makers from the commercial diving, remotely operated vehicle and underwater operations industries will come to­gether this February for three days of information sharing, industry updates and product demonstrations.

Underwater Intervention (UI), which will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, at the Morial Convention Center from February 22 through 24, is the annual conference hosted by the Association of Diving Contractors International and the Remotely Operated Vehicles Committee of the Marine Technology Society. The purpose of this conference is to bring together people, technology and tools that get the job done underwater.

The technical program is co-chaired by Scripps Institution of Oceanography’s Kevin Hardy (who recently left DeepSea Power and Light) and Steve Struble of Aqueos Subsea. Several area experts will also participate, providing a broad range of learning opportunities.

Attendees can expect expert offerings in the following areas: commercial diving, hosted by Struble; remotely operated vehicles—minis and micros, hosted by Scott Bentley of VideoRay; remotely operated vehicles—work class; manned submersibles, hosted by Will Kohnen of SEAmagine; cables and connectors, hosted by Helmut Portmann of NOAA; moorings, hosted by Jack Rowley of SAIC; and marine education, hosted by Jill Zande of the MATE Center. Barbara Fletcher of the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center San Diego, Landry Bernard of NOAA, Sean Newsome of SeaBotix and Brian Luzzi of VideoRay are also technical program committee members.

The technical program, which is still taking shape, currently includes American Society of Mechanical Engineers updates, a hydraulics workshop, a cable and connector workshop, a diving fitness workshop, and a legal update. Potential presenters can submit suggestions to co-chairmen Hardy and Struble at khardy@ucsd.edu or sstruble@aqueossubsea.com.
