Clear Signal Coating Selected for $450 million Ocean Observing Initiative

Image: Severn Marine Technologies Teledyne RD Instruments (San Diego, CA) and Nobska (Woods Hole, MA) have selected Severn Marine Technology’s (Annapolis, MD) Clear Signal Biofouling Control System to coat their instruments for long-term deployments in the ocean observing initiative. Both Teledyne RD instruments and Nobska performed in house testing and verification and concluded that the Clear Signal coating provided outstanding biofouling control. The Clear Signal coating met the requirements of both companies because it is a highly robust coating that is designed to last the life of the instrument. The Ocean Observing Initiative is a $450 million National Science Foundation funded ocean observing system and represents the largest investment of its type in the U.S.
