Adaptable Monitoring Package — AMP

Eyes and Ears on the Environmental Effects of Marine Energy Conversion

We've been asking environmental questions about marine energy converters for the past five years. It's very difficult to deploy the right mix of instrumentation to answer these questions.

The AMP is a tool that allows us to acquire the information we need within a time frame that makes it relevant.

AMP Innovations — At a Glance

Low-cost deployment system centered on a customized off-the-shelf inspection class ROV

Subsea docking system that withstands over 1,000 lbs of load from currents and/or waves

Remotely-operated wet-mate cable connection for power and data

Adaptable package with optimized hydrodynamics to maximize survivability in harsh conditions typical of marine energy conversion sites
