Since receiving her degree, Ms. Young has earned substantial experience in underwater navigation, and ROV operations as Navigator aboard the E/Vs Nautilus and NOASS Okeanos Explorer. As a private contractor, Young proved to be an invaluable member of the team, single-handedly processing and interpreting over 15,000 acres of sonar data acquired as part of a massive ongoing post-Superstorm Sandy waterway debris removal project.

SeaVision's future success depends on our team's fluency in the solutions we provide and in the science and technology that make them possible. We're always working to better equip our team with comprehensive technical and operational understandings of a wide range of industry standard:
Our primary vessel, Nisqually is a 27' Armstrong aluminum catamaran designed and developed specifically for conducting marine research. When the surface or subsurface conditions of a particular project demand additional maneuverability, we occasionally rely on either of two smaller vessels. Although we aren't by any means limited to the following list, we already have extensive experience mobilizing to:
SVUS is always open to professional collaborations within our extensive professional network of satisfied clients and esteemed colleagues.
We look forward to the training, educational, and networking opportunities available to us through our new neighbors at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's Advanced Technology and Manufacturing Center in the South Coast Research and Technology Park in Fall River, Massachussetts.
