San Diego, CA, March 17, 2006 -- Teledyne RD Instruments (RDI) announces two large back-to-back orders from Seatronics Ltd. for a variety of acoustic Doppler products for use in the organization’s worldwide lease pool.

Seatronics is one of the world's largest rental and sales organization for marine survey electronic equipment including hydrographic, geophysical and inspection operations. The organization maintains two office in the United States, as well as offices in Scotland, England, the United Arab Emirates, and Singapore.

Seatronics recent purchases include a total of 26 new Doppler products. These orders were placed to meet the organization’s growing demand for offshore equipment. The Teledyne RDI products purchased include: (7) 75 kHz Workhorse Long Ranger Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) for long range, deep-water oceanographic current profiling applications; (8) Workhorse Sentinel ADCPs for a variety of self-contained current profiling applications; and (11) Workhorse Navigator Doppler Velocity Logs (DVLs) for precision navigation applications onboard Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs).

Seatronics reports that demand for these products has been spurred by a worldwide upturn in activity in the oil and gas sector, and Seatronics reputation for providing the latest technology from the industry’s leading manufacturers.

David Currie, Managing Director, Seatronics, Ltd. adds, “This newest round of Doppler products will contribute to our already extensive pool of Teledyne RDI equipment available for lease worldwide. We’ve made a conscious decision to invest in high quality products that are recognized throughout the world as industry leaders.
