Teledyne RD Instruments Selected To Provide Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) in Support of National Data Buoy Center Programs

(San Diego, CA - March 9, 2006) Teledyne RD Instruments has been awarded a contract from the National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) to supply 27 Workhorse Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) to support numerous NDBC platforms.

The 27 Workhorse ADCPs will be delivered in four product configurations ranging from 75 to 1200 kHz, which will allow for profiling in water depths ranging from 5 to 400 meters. The ADCPs will be deployed for one-year durations, mounted on buoys, C-MAN stations and seafloor platforms. The units will provide a current profile ensemble on an hourly basis, delivering near real-time accurate current data for a variety of NDBC programs.

Teledyne RD Instrument's Workhorse ADCPs measure current flow and direction at up to 128 vertical data points (bins) in the water column, providing a clear illustration of the current dynamics over an extended range. The Workhorse ADCPs incorporate patented Broadband technology that allows the instrument to efficiently collect an increased number of data ensembles over an extended period of time. This provides the user with highly accurate data, with a minimal power draw. The Workhorse ADCPs also incorporate a unique 4-beam configuration that provides data QA/QC, thus ensuring the integrity of collected data.

Teledyne RD Instruments is a leading manufacturer of Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) and Doppler Velocity Logs (DVLs) for scientific, commercial and military applications.
