A Long History

Over the years DeepWater Buoyancy has worked closely with and Teledyne RDI to design and produce a full line of deployment products.  In fact, the very first ADCP buoy was made by the company’s predecessor, Flotation Technologies, back in 1986.

Since then, DeepWater Buoyancy’s customized buoys and frames have been coupled with Teledyne RDI’s quality precision ADCPs to provide industry professionals with an array of solutions to collect highly accurate data for coastal and offshore applications.  This partnership follows decades of joint design and development efforts to meet the needs of their mutual clients around the globe.

A Recent Collaboration

When the Teledyne RDI Product Development Team was developing the Pinnacle ADCP, DeepWater Buoyancy  worked closely with them to ensure fit and functionality with existing buoys.  This allowed for full compatibility with end users’ existing inventory of buoys.  In addition to ensuring that the products worked, DeepWater Buoyancy developed a full conversion kit that included a custom frame (required for the unique beam pattern), a replacement buoy clamp that doubled as a lifting tool, and a unique Buoy Lifting Strap System.
