Hydroid, Inc., a subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime and manufacturer of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), today announced organizational changes to its management team to prepare for anticipated growth and to further solidify their market leadership.

Libby Signell has been appointed to vice president of operations. Signell, most recently program manager at Hydroid, brings to her new position more than thirty years of engineering and program management experience. She has previously worked at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Lockheed Martin. Signell holds a mechanical engineering degree from the University of Michigan and is a certified Project Management Professional (PMP).

Leading Hydroid’s team of engineers will be Julie Ferland, the company’s new vice president of engineering. Ferland comes to Hydroid from her most recent position as vice president and principal engineer at Maritime Applied Physics Corporation (MAPC). Ferland is a former US Navy officer and salvage diver. She is a Harvard University graduate with a BS in Mechanical Engineering, and holds a Master’s degree in Civil Engineering, Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

In addition to these recent appointments, Hydroid said it is actively recruiting a research and development manager to spearhead the company’s new product developments in marine robotics.

Many of Hydroid’s employees and management team members will be relocating to the company’s new 40,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility, currently under construction in Pocasset. Completion is slated for August 2014.
