Trauthwein Associate Publisher & Editor Email: trauthwein@marinelink.com TThe loss and mystery surrounding Malaysian Airlines ß ight 370 is a tragedy indeed, for the 239 presumably lost onboard the Boeing 777, and also for the families that wait onshore for closure. The subsequent search for MH370, which now has exceeded two months Ð and by many estimates could stretch many more months if not years Ð has been instrumental in highlighting both the capabilities and the limitations of subsea technology. In the hunt for MH370, BlueÞ n Robotics and Phoenix International have taken center stage, and I have seen more general media coverage of Autonomous Underwater Vehicles in the last two months than the last eight years combined. Whether itÕs waking up in the morning and checking the news on my phone; riding the train and reading the paper; or watching the news from the conÞ nes of a treadmill at the gym; that bright yellow AUV was seemingly everywhere. For this edition we were fortunate for the opportunity to interview David P. Kelly , President & CEO, BlueÞ n Robotics Ð A Battelle Company, for his insights on the BlueÞ n Robotics created, Phoenix International owned and operated AUV. Kelly has led BlueÞ n Robotics for six years, and his company, in tandem with the AUV sector as a whole, has matured and expanded rapidly. Quantifying that expansion in this edition is Eduardo Ribeiro of Douglas-Westwood, who shares with MTR insights and statistics surrounding the history and near term direc-tion of the global AUV market. The information is gleaned from DWÕs ?AUV Market Fore- cast ? 5th Edition,? and for those of you who have never perused the DW reports, I highly recommend looking them up as they are comprehensive and insightful.
