Underwater Anti-Terrorism Technology for SF Bay

  19/08/2008
Coda Underwater Inspection System (UIS), developed in co-operation with the US Coast Guard, has been purchased by the Sheriff's Office of Contra Costa County (CA, USA). The authority will be the first on USA's West Coast to permanently deploy the UIS, developed after the 9/11 attacks to address the need for a new generation of port security technology to respond to underwater threats.
 

The UIS will play the key role in enhancing San Francisco Bay's underwater security capability and assisting the County's efforts to secure shore side critical infrastructure in the California Bay and Delta regions. ‘Having seen this technology in action when the All-Star Game was held in San Francisco, we are very excited to add this powerful 3D real-time sonar technology to our counter terrorism efforts. This is the only system of its kind that can produce the sort of detailed information we need and in real time, which significantly improves our capability to protect the public', commented Lieutenant Will Duke of the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff.

 

Jason Reid, Coda Octopus President and CEO, said he viewed the Contra Costa order as a significant milestone for the Company. ‘We have always envisaged the ports and local law enforcement agencies of the United States as a very large and important market for these devices', Reid said. ‘The orders in recent months by Jacksonville Sheriff's Office and now Contra Costa confirm our belief in the technology of the products', he continued, expecting to confirming additional orders in the near future.

Bathymetry of the Western Australian Sea Floor

 

Bathymetry is the study and mapping of seafloor topography. It involves obtaining measurements of the depth of the ocean and is equivalent to mapping topography on land. The bathymetric survey will produce a map that charts the contours, depths and hardness of the ocean floor. The video by Geoscience Australia is not the result of the MH370 survey, but demonstrates the type of information and detail that is being gathered.
