Teledyne Completes acquisition of RESON

RESON is a leading provider of multibeam sonar systems and specialty acoustic sensors for hydrography, global marine infrastructure and offshore energy operations.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. - March 1, 2013 - Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:TDY) ("Teledyne") announced today that it has completed the acquisition of RESON A/S ("RESON"). RESON, headquartered in Slangerup, Denmark, provides high-resolution marine acoustic imaging and measurement solutions. The acquired company will operate under the name Teledyne RESON. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.


With over 30 years of experience and approximately 1,400 RESON echosounders sold worldwide, RESON is a leading provider of multibeam sonar systems and specialty acoustic sensors for hydrography, global marine infrastructure and offshore energy operations. RESON's multibeam sonar systems range from portable high-resolution shallow water systems used on autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) to full ocean depth vessel mounted oceanographic systems.

"RESON is our thirteenth acquisition in our marine instrumentation group, which provides sonar systems, acoustic sensors and communication devices, harsh environment interconnects, and complete autonomous underwater vehicles," said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne. "With the addition of RESON, as well as BlueView and Optech last year, Teledyne now offers 3D marine imaging systems for use from aircraft, fixed platforms, surface vessels and AUVs over a wide range of distances and water depths. We are also working to integrate terrestrial and marine imagery, as well as enhance our ability to deliver, in addition to an image, specific information about objects, the land and seafloor, and the water column."

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
