RJE International supports McGill Robotics team in RoboSub Competition

By July 1, 2015News

RJE International donated an underwater locator beacon to the engineering design team of McGill Robotics of Quebec, Canada. The team is competing at an event organized by AUVSI Foundation and the Office of Naval Research in San Diego, CA.

Adrian Battiston, Mechanical Leader and Project Manager accepted the beacon from Robert Jechart, President of RJE International. By supporting McGill we are directly supporting education of over 50 engineering students.

RJE International continues its mission of giving back to the community and supporting research and education. These underwater locator beacons, previously used on aircraft black boxes, have been repurposed and donated for research. The beacons meet rigid standards and are equipped with new 30 day batteries.
