UNOLS and UHMC Shared Use Equipment

UNOLS provides a number of winches, wires and other shared used equipment. The assets on the Shared Equipment List have been provided through funding from NSF and other U.S. Government agency grants to OTG. These items are made available to users in the UNOLS community without a user charge. The UHMC also has a number of winches and capstans that are available for use, but are not permanent equipment on the Kilo Moana.

All requests for use of these assets must be made to the Tech Manager, who is responsible for scheduling use of the available shared-use equipment in conjunction with equipment custodians. Requests for equipment will be prioritized on a first-come, first-served basis, and in the event of conflicts in equipment commitments, priority will be given to projects using the assets aboard the Kilo Moana. Reasonable efforts will be made to secure alternate arrangements for similar assets with other institutions if a commitment conflict arises, although loans of this nature frequently incur additional charges.
