September 2022 OES Beacon

Passing of Claude Brancart

Robert Wernli and Harumi Sugimatsu, BEACON Editors

Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that one of our most active members, Claude Brancart, passed away last December. Claude was a former AdCom member, our representative on the OTC Board, OES Secretary, Chairman of OCEANS ’96 MTS/IEEE and was OES President in 1997-1998. We will provide an article in the December Beacon that addresses his career and the significant impact he had on the OES. If you would like to add a personal comment, please send to your Beacon editors before the 14 November deadline.
