2 Oceans was born of a desire to help prevent damaging hurricanes with an additional benefit to generate clean energy to help power our planet for generations to come. Innovation, visionary concepts and science come together to form a dynamic foundation that fuels all of our research, product designs and potential partnerships.
Preventing hurricanes isn’t just a scientific achievement of enormous proportions; it’s also a major feat for humanity itself. The ability to alter how populations in hurricane-prone areas plan for the future is powerful. As we work to making hurricane prevention a reality, we’re also striving to help everyone from islanders to business owners protect their persons, their property and their livelihoods and assure governments that there’s a new way to stave off catastrophic hurricane-related human and financial losses.
ABOUT BRUCE MORTON
At the heart of it all is aerospace engineer and rocket scientist Bruce Morton. After receiving a B.S in Aeronautics and Astronautics from New York University, Bruce pursued graduate work at the University of Pennsylvania, ultimately earning an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering. This helped launch a stellar career that included positions at Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Raytheon. In addition to work in engineering, business development and strategic planning, Morton has worked on design, testing and launch aspects for re-entry systems and orbital spacecraft for NASA and clients in the defense sector and collaborated on numerous projects related to renewable energy.
Before retiring from Lockheed Martin in 2010, Morton split his time between the company and his work as an Adjunct Professor at George Washington University, where he instructed students in management information systems and cybersecurity.
It’s Bruce’s passion for hurricane prevention that spurred the creation of solar power satellites (SPS). He has homes in both Northern Virginia and St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. While at his island retreat, Bruce became more intimately aware of the financial and human impact of hurricanes. He also began to worry about the apparent rise in hurricane intensity. From this insight came the idea to affect hurricanes while they’re still in their earliest stages, as tropical depressions, and the concept of solar power satellites for hurricane prevention came to be.
