Meet the Alvin 6500 Team: Lane Abrams

In 1991, Abrams was working as an electrical engineer at Bell Labs in New Jersey, when he saw a help wanted ad in the Boston Globe for the Alvin Group at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Abrams’ group reconfigured the electrical systems during the last overhaul, anticipating that the group was set to extend its range from 4,500 to 6,500 meters. This is the second interview in a multi-part series with members of the Alvin Group. Oceanus: What do you do for the Alvin Group? We’ve purposely built Alvin so that the electrical system is a small part of what is required to keep people safe.
