OME Seminar Announcement – EOC4930-Senior Seminar
Tuesday, March 15, 2011 from 2:00 PM-2:50 PM
Originating at ST250 (SeaTech Auditorium) and Video Conferenced to EG-187 (Boca OME Conference Room)
Presenter: W. Bruce Strickrott (FAU Alumni)
DSV Alvin Expedition Leader
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
Presentation: About Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, specifically the National
Deep Submergence Facility which is based at WHOI, and also a brief
description of the vehicles used, including Alvin, Jason, Sentry and Nereus.
Bruce Strickrott is the Expedition Leader and Chief Pilot of the manned deep submergence
vehicle Alvin, operated as a part of the U.S. National Deep Submergence Facility.
He has worked as a member of the Alvin Group since 1996 and has over 300 dives as
Pilot in Command. Bruce began his career in the U.S.
Navy working on naval surface vessels as an electronic weapons and radar technician,
including during Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. During this period he trained as
a SCUBA diver, an experience that motivated him toward a future in oceanographic work.
After the Navy, Bruce attended Florida Atlantic University, working as a dive master and
mate aboard the R/V Oceaneer IV, performing SCUBA and AUV (autonomous underwater
vehicle) operations, and obtained a B.S. in Ocean Engineering.
Currently Bruce is working with the engineering group at Woods Hole toward the design
and upgrade of Alvin. This upgrade will improve the existing vehicle in many ways
including advanced control, sensor, video and interface systems and will increase the
submersible's maximum depth rating from 4500 meters to 6500 meters.
Additionally, Bruce is also working with scientists at Woods Hole toward promoting science,
math and engineering education to high school students.
