OUR SPONSORS

CUA's Equipment Sponsors & Contributors

We are grateful to the following companies and departments who are assisting with equipment sponsorship for CUA's research projects.

1. GHF

2. The Ukrainian Underwater Sport Federation

3. Tovarystvo Spryjannja Oboroni Ukrainy (TSOU)

4. The Airline by J. Sink

In 2006 the CUA team stsrted to work with air supplied from a hookah compressor. The hookah (or surface supplied air compressor) is an independent floating gasoline powered machine that feeds four air hoses to divers down to 40 feet. This equipment, generously donated by the manufacturer, Airline by J. Sink, weighs only 55lbs and will be much easier to transport than the four sets of scuba gear formerly needed to outfit our team for each dive.

         
 

5. Epicenter Scuba, 1935 Warwick, RI 02889

6. "White's Electronics (UK) Ltd" metal detector (Spectrum XLT)

7. Society for Archaeology and Anthropology of KNU.

Special thanks must go to businessmen Anatoliy Tsymbal, Evgeniy Marchuk, Stanislaw Sorokopud, Leonid Solonko, and a diving club “Meteor” (leader Sergey Zaharikov) for their help and gears and equipment donation.
Also Katy Alexandra Zei, Benjamin Goetsch, Kyle Lippenberger, John Albertson, Martin Shmidheiny, Giles Richardson, Megan Goetsch, Hillary Smith, Kimberley Koper,Gabriel Miller, Martina Jirouskova, Derek Irwin, Brian Seymour, Frank Prince, Frederik Roelens and Heidi Inman have been helping us to fulfill the project tasks. The CUA team is very grateful to all these companies and individuals who volunteer and gave assistance.

Applying to all the members, Universities, Archaeologists, Divers, Volunteers and Companies,

we welcome you all to take part in our program in any way you can. For example CUA badly needs high-tech detecting equipment and instruments to assist in the search of objects under water; such as side-scan sonar, magnetometers, metal detectors, sub-bottom profilers, multi-spectral and multi-sensor visualization cameras and other equipment. All assistance is greatly appreciated, whether by providing equipment, finance, manpower and support or by actually taking part in the archaeological work. Together we can save our archaeological heritage, archaeological sites, placing the information and rescued artifacts in museums for generations to learn and enjoy. In doing so we are preserving and protecting our future and our past.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AS FRIENDS OF CUA!
