Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego has one of the largest academic research fleets in the world, with four research vessels.  

Since 1907, Scripps oceanographic vessels have played a critical role in the exploration of our planet, conducting important research in all the world’s oceans.

In response to the changes in research vessel safety specifications defined by NSF, Rugged Controls was awarded the contract to upgrade the winch monitoring systems aboard all four primary research vessels.

Rugged Controls provided local and remote displays, analog meters, large scoreboard displays, installation and commissioning services.

Installation locations ranged from San Diego to Tawain.  


Upgraded Vessels:

  • R/V Revelle
  • R/V Melville
  • R/V Sproul
  • R/V Melville
  • Winch/Wire Pool
