Local Agencies Identify Stolen Car In Willamette River During Training Exercise

High Tech Robotic Camera Used to Keep Divers Safe While Capturing Stunning Video

Willamette River, OR – August 30, 2005  VideoRay LLC, of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, worked with local agencies in a demonstration and training exercise yesterday on the Willamette River in Clackamas County, Oregon near Portland.  The exercise was organized to show local law enforcement and search and rescue departments the latest underwater inspection and surveillance technology. In attendance were representatives from:

VideoRay experts were in town at the request of the US Army Corps of Engineers.  Their National Dive Safety Workshop is designed to demonstrate methods such as the use of VideoRay ROVs that can replace or augment dangerous human diving.

Clackamas County Sheriff's Office suspected there were submerged stolen vehicles in the river, and coordinated the VideoRay demonstration as an alternative to the danger and expense of conducting the search using divers. The VideoRay was operated from shore by law enforcement and fire rescue personnel using a wireless computer interface and sonar.  Shortly after entering the water, the VideoRay ROV delivered crisp video showing the license plate of a white Chevy Blazer, as well as a second unidentified vehicle.  The investigation continues...

The Multnomah County Sheriff has a VideoRay purchase in the works, and representatives were very pleased with the experience and opportunity to meet with VideoRay experts.
