Second Annual GlobalSpec Great Moments in Engineering Award

07/14/2006 7:00 AM

The 2006 GlobalSpec Great Moments in Engineering Award was presented to the Jason Jr. engineering team (1986) in honor of the 20th anniversary of their first video survey of R.M.S. Titanic.

This small engineering team from the Deep Submergence Laboratory of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution - whose behind-the-scenes technical accomplishments resulted in the design and prototyping of a tethered robotic "video vehicle" 12,000+ feet deep in the North Atlantic - helped open doors to undersea discovery, commerce, innovation and a new understanding of the ocean's ecosystem through remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). The team has never been singled out and honored for its achievement on a national or international level.

This follows last year's Inaugural Great Moments in Engineering Award presented to NASA's Crew Systems Division (1970) on the 35 anniversary of their heroic efforts to bring the imperiled Apollo 13 safely home.

So who should we nominate for the 2007 GlobalSpec Great Moments in Engineering Award?
