Teledyne Optech’s Vinod Ramnath awarded JALBTCX Technical Achievement Award

July 10, 2018Teledyne Optech is pleased to announce that Research Scientist and Development Manager Vinod Ramnath was awarded the Sebastian Sizgoric Technical Achievement Award by the Joint Airborne Lidar Bathymetry Technical Center of Expertise (JALBTCX) at their 19th Annual JALBTCX Airborne Coastal Mapping and Charting Workshop in Providence, Rhode Island. The award recognizes his overall contributions to the development of the world’s most advanced bathymetric system.

Mr. Ramnath earned his M.S. in Electrical Engineering from Mississippi State University and has over 15 years of experience in the remote sensing industry. Mr. Ramnath conceived, designed and implemented advanced signal processing algorithms for the Optech Coastal Zone Mapping and Imaging Lidar (CZMIL) and its HydroFusion processing suite. His accomplishments include:

  • Modeling how lidar beams interact with various water conditions, which enabled Teledyne Optech to optimize CZMIL’s hardware parameters and improve its range accuracy.
  • Developing HydroFusion’s Turbid Water Module, which extracts depth measurements from challenging environments that otherwise defy lidar surveying.
  • Decreasing the processing time to generate data products by 50% with various enhancements implemented last year.

“We are very proud that our colleague Vinod Ramnath has been awarded the Sebastian Sizgoric Technical Achievement Award for 2018. It is an honour, especially since JALBTCX named the award after one of Optech’s co-founders,” said Bob Marthouse, Teledyne Optech’s Marine Business Manager and Director of Operations. “Given today’s increasing usage of advanced lidar technologies in coastal mapping, maritime navigation planning, and environmental monitoring, Mr. Ramnath’s research has already benefited agencies monitoring coastal zone environments and has made a significant impact on society.”
