Honeywell Forms New Undersea Sensor Group

Honeywell Marine Systems Division, of Seattle, Wash., recently created a new group to expand development activities in underwater transducer technology. The Undersea Sensor Group draws into one business unit the engineering, management, and laboratory resources necessary to support all of the d i v i s i o n 's acoustic sensor design and smallquantity manufacturing activities.

By concentrating these capabilities under one head, the new organization is designed to more efficiently meet projected future r e q u i r e m e n t s for underwater acoustic equipment.

The new Honeywell group fits within the company's Seattlebased Marine Systems Division (MSD), a leader in naval acoustic equipment and ocean engineering services. Since 1951, MSD has developed and produced a wide spectrum of underwater sensor products for both government and commercial applications in the United States and abroad.

Commercial products generally related to acoustic positioning systems such as beacons, transponders, and the corresponding shipboard equipment also are produced.

Head of the specialized undersea sensor team is Robert D.

Isaak, most recently product line manager for advanced systems at MSD and former head of the Sonic Sonar and Countermeasures Division of the U.S. Naval Undersea Center, San Diego, Calif.
