Consulting in all aspects of
the mechanical design of the vehicle itself, I was one of the first
investors and co-patent
We pioneered the revolutionary
idea that a thick printed circuit board (PCB) could be exposed to the
thus used as the distribution
backbone of the vehicle; electronically tying together the pressure
vessels and thrusters.
Inexpensive O-rings sealed the
connecting ports directly onto the PCB; Eliminating many expensive
connectors and cables.
Today, Seabotix employs over 30
people and is by far the fastest-growing ROV manufacturer.
These vehicles have become the
best-selling underwater ROVs in the world. The vehicle was selected
as an illustrated 2006 case
both SolidWorks & Cosmosworks CAD/CAE Software,
including their use in cover
art for various Solidworks & Cosmosworks manuals of 2006 & 2007.
This ROV debuted in on the
cover of 'Design News'.
