Jami Cheramie
Oceaneering Survey Services

Jami is Sr. Manager for Technology and Development with Oceaneering Survey Services in Lafayette, LA, with a degree in Computer Science and a minor in Math.

His career started with C&C Technologies 1996 as a developer and then in charge of Systems Development from 2002 until the acquisition of C&C in 2015 by Oceaneering.

Jami has been working with Unmanned and AUV technologies, along with their evolution and growth, starting with development programs in the mid-’90s for the Navy Research Lab and into the commercial line of C-Surveyor AUVs in the 2000s.

To date that work has included the addition of new sensors and the development of techniques to extend the use of AUVs from being the default tool for deepwater geophysical/geohazard surveys into the inspection realm and beyond.
