About davidfratantoni

David Fratantoni is an engineer, oceanographer, and innovator. As a scientist for 18 years at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, my research emphasized in-situ and remote measurement of ocean circulation and the exploration of relationships between ocean physics and biology. As founder and principal investigator of the Autonomous Systems Laboratory, I conducted pioneering research on eddies in the western Atlantic and Indian Oceans, contributed to the development and novel application of underwater gliders and other mobile autonomous platforms, and developed instrumentation and strategies for sustained ocean observations. At Horizon Marine I served as Chief Technology Officer. The company provides oceanographic expertise, in-situ and remote ocean observations, and detailed environmental forecasting to the global offshore energy industry. My role was to lead research and development of new and existing products, provide oceanographic expertise, and contribute to development of novel business strategies.
