Biography

Graham Hawkes, an ocean engineer/inventor. He has been responsible for the design of a significant percentage of all operated and more than 300 remote underwater vehicles built for research or industry worldwide. This is including the Wasp and Mantis Atmospheric Diving Suits, the Deep Rover research submersibles, and the experimental Deep Flight series of winged submersibles. He plans to take the next generation sub, Deep Flight II, to the deepest point on the planet, The Mariana Trench, which lies at 37,000 feet beneath the ocean's surface. Graham Hawkes currently holds the world record for the deepest solo ocean dive at 3,000 feet, which he achieved while test piloting his Deep Rover submersible.

Mr. Hawkes has successfully founded and managed five high technology companies, including, Precision Remotes, Inc., which manufactures remote land-based systems for the military and Hawkes Ocean Technologies (HOT), which designs and manufactures state of the art operated submersibles. HOT's current projects include, the Deep Flight Aviator, a two person underwater flight trainer for economical, long-range exploration and the Spider Optic vehicle, a highly advanced, new genre of Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) being developed for NASA.

In the early 1990's, Graham Hawkes co-founded with Dr. Sylvia Earle Deep Ocean Engineering, which manufactures a significant portion of ROVs now in use for military and civilian purposes worldwide. In the 1980's, he designed and manufactured Sensory Manipulator Systems used by the United States Navy, NASA, and AT&T for various industrial underwater vehicles. In 1989, he founded Deep Sea Discoveries, a commercial marine archeology company that located over 350 shipwrecks.

In the late 1970's, Graham Hawkes co-founded Offshore Systems Engineering in England, where he designed and managed the manufacturing of the atmospheric diving systems, the Wasp, and the Mantis. He refined the design of the atmospheric diving system, the JIM suit, for operation in depths of 2,000 feet. Prior to that, he was an engineer at Plessey Underwater Weapons Unit in United Kingdom, and before that, he was an Engineer at the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority.

Graham Hawkes is widely considered to the leader in his field. In 1987, he was named an Associate Laureate for the Rolex award for Enterprise and in 1996 and 1997, Design News nominated him for Engineer of the Year. In 1997, Graham Hawkes received Design News' Special Achievement award. In 1998, he was a finalist in the Discover awards for innovation, and in the year 2000 he received the Computerworld Smithsonian award in the science category that recognizes individuals and organizations that have demonstrated vision and leadership as they use information technology to benefit society.
