Pod 31, 15th October 2020 - SUT CEO Steve Hall interviews Luke Alden, a Mechanical Designer working for International Submarine Engineering in British Columbia, Canada. Luke's background is in industrial design, working on projects such as the design of aircraft cockpit instrument layouts and watertight doors for lifeboats. He moved to Canada and joined ISE, a company that has been a pioneer in the development and operation of marine autonomous systems, industrial remote operated vehicles and semi-submersible platforms for long-range surveillance and patrol.
Luke tells us some of the rich history of ISE, which included the famous 'Theseus' vehicle we spoke to Bruce Butler about back in Pod 15, and moves on to the present-day 'Explorer' vehicle, before talking about future developments.
