Second Annual Captain Don Walsh Award For Ocean Exploration Is Now Open For Entries

Awarded jointly by both societies, the Captain Don Walsh Award for Ocean Exploration is presented annually to an individual who has made an outstanding, sustained, international contribution to the development, application, or propagation of marine/ underwater technology toward the advancement of ocean exploration. The award is named in honour of Captain (Ret) Don Walsh, an accomplished American oceanographer, explorer, retired naval officer, and marine policy specialist. He and Jacques Piccard were aboard the bathyscaphe Trieste on January 23, 1960 when it made a record descent into the Mariana Trench, which is the deepest point of the world's oceans. Dr. Edie Widder, an MTS member, won the inaugural award in 2020.

Message from Bob Allwood, SUT (CEO)

After a very long and varied career I have decided to retire from full time employment as from 1 April 2017 when I shall be stepping down as Chief Executive of the Society for Underwater Technology. My first real involvement with the SUT was in 1987 when I joined the Subsea Engineering and Operations Committee shortly after taking up my post of Senior Lecturer at Cranfield University. However, my real first experience of the SUT was in attending an excellent one-day conference in 1978 on the subject of diving. Little did I know then that in 2009, just a little before normal retirement age, I would be leading this wonderful unique organisation. When it comes to praising the SUT, I am certainly not alone.
