In addition to Dr. Delgado, the student team worked side by side with scientists and historians from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)*, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute* and NOAA’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory*.

"The technology used in ship hunting is akin to using your eyes," said Dr. Delgado, Maritime Heritage Program director for NOAA’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries. "How much of what you see is dependent on your field of view. Historically, ship hunting was like looking through a microscope. Your perspective was limited to what you could physically see. However, today’s technology, advances in computing and SONAR allow us to step away from the microscope, widening our field of view while also preserving the detail."

Project Shiphunt is just as ambitious as last year’s initiative when Sony and Intel worked with students from the California Academy of Mathematics & Science, pairing them with a rocket scientist to design, build and launch a high powered rocket.
