Abstract:

Inventions for underwater technology can include a variety of new subsea innovations, such as methods for placing moorings, manufacturing of hydrophones, using remote operated vehicles (ROV) in a new way, a new lighting device to illuminate underwater drilling, underwater test equipment, controls systems, quick disconnects and fancy new diving flippers. Protecting this technology in the United States, and internationally in the countries of the 134 members of the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), is an expensive and sometimes seemingly endless process.
