Towed Array Upgrades
Northeastern University has contracted Einhorn Engineering to perform Phase I of a multiphase effort to upgrade the Lightweight Towed Array Receiver (LTAR) system. Phase I upgrades will allow the system to collect and present data for analysis in real time and will provide increased array telemetry data . Follow-on phases will include array and handling system improvements to increase the range of operating sea states. This work will result in a more robust array and improved handling system personnel safety.
In 2014 EInhorn Engineering, PLLC joined the Applied Physics Laboratory-University of Washington Collaboratory. This partnership allows Einhorn Engineering to work together with other local ocean engineering companies and APL towards the goal of increasing Washingtons role in the development of new and innovative ocean engineering technology.
Marine Technology Society
Mike Einhorn has proudly served as Vice Chair of the Marine Technology Society Puget Sound Chapter since 2013.
Our local chapter meets monthly from October to June. Meeting formats include a social hour followed by dinner and technical presentation. Meetings are usually held at the University of Washington Ocean Sciences building, but the location varies depending on presenters. Meeting announcements will be posted here. If you would like to present or provide feedback on what you would like to see happen at your local chapter, please contact Mike Einhorn directly.
Mike has presented twice at the local MTS meetings. In October 2015 he gave a talk entitled, “The Design, Construction and Fielding of a Vertical Towed Array & Handling System; An Engineering Journey from Lake Washington to the Barents Sea” in which he discussed the design and development of a unique towed array and handling system.
Previously, at the November meeting in 2011 Mike presented on the topic of Handling System Design Standards for littoral environments.
