Teledyne Technologies Incorporated announced today that it has completed the acquisition of RESON. RESON, headquartered in Slangerup, Denmark, provides high-resolution marine acoustic imaging and measurement solutions. The acquired company will operate under the name Teledyne RESON. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
With more than 30 years of experience and approximately 1,400 RESON echosounders sold worldwide, RESON is a provider of multibeam sonar systems and specialty acoustic sensors for hydrography, global marine infrastructure and offshore energy operations. RESON’s multibeam sonar systems range from portable high-resolution shallow water systems used on autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) to full ocean depth vessel mounted oceanographic systems.
“RESON is our thirteenth acquisition in our marine instrumentation group, which provides sonar systems, acoustic sensors and communication devices, harsh environment interconnects, and complete autonomous underwater vehicles,” said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne. “With the addition of RESON, as well as BlueView and Optech last year, Teledyne now offers 3D marine imaging systems for use from aircraft, fixed platforms, surface vessels and AUVs over a wide range of distances and water depths. We are also working to integrate terrestrial and marine imagery, as well as enhance our ability to deliver, in addition to an image, specific information about objects, the land and seafloor, and the water column.”
