VideoRay Underwater Robot to be Featured in Marine Safety Training in New York Harbor, May 22-23

Bear Search & Rescue Foundation Brings Together Fifteen Agencies in Tri-State Area; Showcases Technology for Underwater Search and Rescue

Exton, PA, May 14, 2004 – Captain Scott Shields, whose world-famous dog Bear located the most victims at Ground Zero after the September 11 attacks on the Twin Towers, is hosting the second annual Marine Safety Training in New York Harbor on May 22-23, 2004. The capabilities of VideoRay ROVs (remotely operated vehicles) will be shown to more than fifteen agencies including the US Coast Guard, New York Search & Rescue, and others taking part in the event sponsored by Shields’ Bear Search and Rescue Foundation. Leading the sessions are Undersheriff Dave Phillips and Rescue Squad member Lt. Tom Crossmon from St. Louis County, Minnesota, who used a VideoRay this past winter to locate the body of a drowned snowmobile driver.

“I have long believed that for the price and its size, the VideoRay is the best gear on the market,” says Shields. “It is my goal to bring VideoRays to the Tri-State area for search and rescue missions. We are honored to have Undersheriff Phillips and Lt. Crossmon teaching our teams; they use the VideoRay successfully in the field every day.”

The VideoRay ROV is an 8-pound underwater submersible equipped with a video camera. Operated by one person from land or boat, the submersible is attached to a tether and control box to navigate and document underwater conditions. VideoRays are in use worldwide for search and rescue and Homeland Security initiatives.

Three VideoRays will be at the event, to be held at Pier 63 Maritime & The Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum in the New York Harbor from 8-6pm on Saturday, May 22 and Sunday, May 23. Media are welcome. For more information on the event, contact Capt. Scott Shields at 732-713-6298.
