Samson, a leader in performance cordage, was presented the Industrial Compass Award at the Marine Technology Society’s annual awards luncheon during the Oceans ’08 MTS/IEEE conference in Quebec City, Quebec.

Based in Ferndale, Wash., Samson was recognized for several patented technologies, including a synthetic rope replacement for wire ropes used as fire wires; the use of DPX fiber in ropes, resulting in durable ropes with increased grip properties; and a reduced-recoil-risk technology that incorporates a controlled-failure mechanism in Mooring Defender rope.

Samson was also commended for its commitment to the advancement of rope research through donations of rope to science. For example, Samson provided rope for studies to determine the behavior of deepwater moorings in hurricane conditions, the relationship between rope-to-pin diameter and strength reduction, and the relationship between rope damage and strength reduction.
