ThayerMahan CEO Mike Connor said, “ThayerMahan is bringing best-in-class seabed imaging technology to customers in government, industry, and academia that provides a very efficient way to image and map the ocean floor and undersea infrastructure. We are proud to be partnering with Geo SubSea because they are experts in turning seabed monitoring technology into the products needed to ensure safe and efficient seabed development. Together, we will provide the next generation in maritime geophysics and ocean engineering support.”
Geo SubSea has extensive offshore surveying experience covering multiple marine survey and marine science fields. The company has offshore wind experience and significant experience with high resolution surficial and subsurface sonar data manipulation, interpretation and reporting.
Geo SubSea pesident, Jeff Gardner added, “We are very excited about this collaboration as we have been promoting the use of advanced surface and undersea technology for years in the offshore wind industry, and it is now coming of age as a force multiplier in a number of maritime sectors as well as becoming more cost-effective. This technology combined with Geo SubSea’s extensive offshore survey experience in marine geophysics, geotechnical, and environmental disciplines, as well as our post-survey technical capabilities that support all aspects of data analysis and product development, are a perfect complement to the ThayerMahan team. The fact that both companies are headquartered in Connecticut is a testament to the state’s leadership role in the advancement of marine science and technology in support of renewable energy locally, regionally, and globally.”
