Chadrahas Reddy’s Engineering Team at Purdue wins Most Valuable Player Award at the International Marine Advanced Technology Education Competition.

Congratulations to Chandrahas Reddy ( Class of 2012) who along with his Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) Team at Purdue University, USA, won the Most Valuable Player Award at the International Marine Advanced Technology Education  (MATE) competition held in Seattle. The theme of the competition was monitoring and repairing ocean observing systems.

Chandrahas’ team built an underwater robot controlled by a laptop and an Xbox controller which could endure underwater depths of up to 1,000 ft. Chandrahas who is a freshman at Purdue’s College of Engineering helped design a PCB for the transmissometer (an instrument for measuring visual properties of water).

The team also received the Judges’ Choice Award – an opportunity awarded to just one team to attend the Underwater Intervention conference. The team will represent the MATE Center at the prestigious Underwater Intervention Conference in New Orleans February 11-13, 2014.

Congratulations Chandrahas on this exceptional achievement! We wish you the very best of luck for the Underwater Intervention Conference in Feb 2014.
