Webb Pinner, Computer Engineer: Webb Pinner is the Remote Exploration Technical Operations Lead for the Ocean Exploration Program. He is a graduate of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute, holds a B.S. in Computer Engineering, and is the primary system architect of the telepresence subsystem that is installed on NOAA's state-of-the-art exploration vessel, Okeanos Explorer. He is also the data management systems architect, responsible for working directly with NOAA and the NOAA Central Library to develop and implement a semi-automated system for collecting organizing, cataloging and accessing oceanographic data, high-resolution imagery, and video originating from the ship. He is a veteran of many offshore expeditions and is an accomplished ROV navigator, pilot, and co-pilot, having participated in several cruises to the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, the Black Sea, and the most recent cruise to the RMS Titanic with Dr. Robert Ballard. He is a tireless innovator and the glue that holds this very complex component of our program together. When not at sea, Webb resides in Kingston, Rhode Island.
