ASL Environmental Sciences has appointed Martin Taillefer to the position of senior project manager and business development.
Taillefer has been working in the fields of oceanography, hydrography, ocean acoustics and underwater warfare for over 25 years.
A naval officer for over 20 years, the latter 10 years were spent as an underwater warfare director and oceanographer for the Pacific Fleet.
Taillefer oversaw the implementation and operations of decisional systems, acoustic modeling and operational systems to create operational products to the fleets. He also oversaw the routine creation and production of real-time oceanographic and acoustic products for operational purposes and fleet uses —often in high tempo naval and military operations.
In 2010, with the support of ASL, Taillefer founded and started a new defense company called Maritime Way Scientific, which for the next nine years earned a reputation as an effective and capable acoustic modelling and sonar analysis company. Maritime Way developed an acoustic modelling system called SPARTA for Lockheed Martin, an acoustic modelling system for arctic sound propagation called Arctic BellTex and acquired the technologies and assets of a Seabed Classification System.
