Atlas Elektronik UK (AEUK) announced that it has been welcomed on board as one of the sponsors of the Bath University Team (BURST) for this year’s European International Submarine Race (eISR) to be held July 7-11, 2014 in Gosport.
AEUK said it decided to sponsor the team due to the technical expertise and promise that they have shown, and the sponsorship has enabled the team to purchase valuable tools and materials required in the run up to the races themselves.
Graduates and Senior Management from AEUK have already made visits to the University to meet the team and learn a little more about the project and what they are working on.
A company spokesman for AEUK said, "AEUK chose to sponsor the BURST team due to their passion and enthusiasm when we visited them at the University. We are delighted to be able to help with their efforts at the eISR and have an aspiration to forge more, wider and stronger links with the University and its engineering graduates."
David Thompson, BURST project manager said, "Atlas Elektronik UK are a brand new sponsor this year and BURST are very excited to have them on board to provide technical help and funds for the improvement of Menrva for the eISR this year. We will enjoy working closely with graduates from AEUK to increase the number of electrical systems that can be implemented in the next submarine as well as refining the current mechanical systems.”
