“I’m excited and honored by this opportunity” said Mr. Fleming. “VideoRay has the best tools for the rapid deployment and effective response required by Port Security and EOD underwater detection. I am looking forward to taking these solutions to the next level in terms of deployment within both the U.S. and other military and coast guard units, and leading the development of more powerful and versatile capabilities.”

With Mark guiding our efforts, we are assured of continued success.”

Mark will be working from a new office that VideoRay is opening in San Diego, California.
