Skip Denny is a Senior Project Engineer at APL and is responsible for sensors on the OOI/RSN (cabled undersea observatory). He received his BA in Applied Physics from the University of California, San Diego and his MS in Oceanic Engineering at Rhode Island University, where his areas of focus were in underwater acoustics, optics and signal processing. He has 30+ years experience in the design and development of acoustic systems, including broadband passive and active systems, fish ID systems and parametric acoustic systems.
David Dall’Osto is a UW graduate student pursuing his PhD in Mechanical Engineering. He is working under Dr. Peter Dahl at the APL-UW, focusing on the utility of vector sensors in underwater acoustic environments, characterizing the effects of forward scattering off of a rough surface on source localization. He received his BS in Mechanical Engineering at Vanderbilt University and his MS in Mechanical Engineering from UW where he conducted an ambient noise study near Smith Island, Puget Sound. Upon graduation David would like to work in the sound-source localization industry.
