“Through CDL and our other marine instrumentation companies, Teledyne provides surface and subsea inertial measurement and motion sensing solutions based on a number of different technologies including mechanical, ring laser and fiber optic gyrocompasses and dynamic motion sensors, as well as acoustic navigation systems,” said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne. “Furthermore, utilizing Teledyne’s acoustic modems, CDL has been developing complete motion sensing and communication systems for the real-time monitoring of subsea energy infrastructure. As a combined company with complementary technology and greater global reach, our goal is to accelerate the development and deployment of these systems for our subsea oil and gas customers. The addition of CDL to our marine instrumentation portfolio provides an exciting opportunity to deliver integrated systems and solutions utilizing the wide range of Teledyne products to satisfy a broad spectrum of marine applications.”
