SCRIPPS Receives Underwater Winged NOVA RAY® ROV

Kirkland, WA: APRIL 7, 2004. Nova Ray, Inc. (NRI) delivered to SCRIPPS Institution of Oceanography a Nova Ray® submersible remotely operated vehicle (ROV), in San Diego, CA, April 7, 2004. The Nova Ray® ROV was anonymously donated to SCRIPPS, one of the oldest, largest, and most important centers for marine science research, graduate training, and public service in the world.

“Being able to support the research efforts of such a prestigious institution is an honor,” commented Marc Geriene, CEO of NRI. “We look forward to the Nova Ray® ROV participating in SCRIPPS’ marine research projects for the protection of our oceans and waterways.”

The Nova Ray®, with its innovative arcuate (bow shaped) wing design, maintains stability and maneuverability in strong currents, cross currents and tides. Highly portable and maneuverable, the Nova Ray® ROV operates efficiently in up to 9 knot currents under tow, and can be operated using built-in thruster power.

Geriene noted, “The Nova Ray® ROV offers a multi-use platform adaptable to a wide range of applications for research, surveys and underwater inspections. It is easy to launch from a stable platform or vessel, and its design can meet the challenges of underwater environments.”

NRI’s arcuate wing and proprietary operating system stem from seven years of ROV research and development. The company founders called upon their expertise as commercial divers, ROV pilots and business owners in developing the Nova Ray’s® innovative design and market applications.
