The £5000 prize was presented to the winning team Tritech/NU who designed and manufactured DiveTrack, a transceiver device carried by divers, which communicates with a surface unit. This enables the diver to be located at all times and can also send emergency signals to the surface alerting boat crew to problems underwater.

The DiveTrack competition, was originally set up in memory of Penny Glover who died with her dive buddy Jacques Filippi in a tragic diving accident in 2005.
