Teledyne boosts expertise in imaging sonar and UUV technology with acquisition of RESON A/S

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., 5 March 2013. Executives of Teledyne Technologies Inc. in Thousand Oaks, Calif., have completed their company's acquisition of RESON A/S in Slangerup, Denmark, to boost Teledyne's expertise in imaging sonar, unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs), and other marine instrumentation.

RESON builds high-resolution marine acoustic imaging and measurement systems. The acquired company will operate under the name Teledyne RESON. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Teledyne RESON will operate as part of the Teledyne Technologies marine instrumentation group, which provides sonar systems, acoustic sensors, acoustic communication devices, harsh-environment interconnects, and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs).

RESON builds 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.

“With the addition of RESON, as well as BlueView and Optech last year, Teledyne offers 3D marine imaging systems for use from aircraft, fixed platforms, surface vessels and AUVs over a wide range of distances and water depths," says Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and CEO of Teledyne.

BlueView in Seattle specializes in high-resolution underwater acoustic imaging and measurement, while Optech in Vaughan, Ontario, has core expertise in laser-based survey and digital imaging, offering standalone and integrated light detection and ranging (LIDAR) systems and camera imaging for airborne terrestrial mapping, airborne laser bathymetry, mobile mapping, and laser imaging.

"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,” Mehrabian says.
