Teledyne Marine Systems includes Teledyne Benthos, Teledyne Webb Research and Teledyne Gavia, all with rich histories in the marine industry. The oceanographic equipment we design and develop allows scientists, industry and governments to gain valuable information from the world’s oceans.
While its companies serve many markets, its commitment to solving complex problems with highly engineered systems continues to be a driving force. Teledyne Marine Systems product lines draw upon shared leadership in engineering and manufacturing and a coordinated sales team that connects modems to gliders and more. Three strategic business units come together as an integrated provider of advanced undersea systems.

Teledyne Benthos
Located in North Falmouth, Massachusetts, Teledyne Benthos is an industry leader with a history of more than 50 years of innovation in marine technology. Benthos designs and manufactures rugged, reliable oceanographic instrumentation and infrastructure for marine environments. Teledyne Benthos products include acoustic releases, acoustic telemetry modems, positioning systems, hydrophones, remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), glass flotation spheres and instrument housings and locating devices. These tools provide the building blocks of ocean observing systems for diverse users. Benthos technologies were part of the discovery of the RMS Titanic, contribute to astrophysical observatories and provide access to the deepest ocean depths.
 

Teledyne Webb Research
Joining Benthos in a dramatically expanded North Falmouth facility in later 2013, Teledyne Webb Research has been serving oceanographic research, commercial, and government customers for more than 30 years. Webb Research designs and manufactures scientific instruments for oceanographic research and monitoring with a focus on extended observations over both time and space. Teledyne Webb Research specializes in three areas of ocean instrumentation: Neutrally buoyant, autonomous drifters and profilers, autonomous underwater gliding vehicles, and moored underwater sound sources. These systems are core to several major ocean monitoring programs including the international Argo array, the National Science Foundation Ocean Observatories Initiative and the US Navy Littoral Battlespace Sensing – Glider (LBS-G) program of record. A Webb Research slocum glider, the Scarlet Knight, was the first unmanned vehicle to cross an ocean.
 

Teledyne Gavia
Located in Kópavogur, Iceland, Teledyne Gavia provides turnkey survey solutions to customers undertaking a variety of tasks for defense, commercial and scientific applications. The Gavia Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) can carry an array of sensors and custom payload modules that make it well suited for any research, monitoring or surveillance task where autonomy, cost and ease of deployment matters. Its modular design allows for rapid sensor reconfiguration and battery replacement. While compact and “low logistics” the Gavia is also extremely capable, rated to 1000 meters depth and proven with a variety of sensor systems.
As an Icelandic technology and compatible with sensors from other international sources, the Gavia AUV is widely exportable and the chosen low logistics AUV of commercial survey firms operating around the world.
