Survey Vessel for Archipelagos and Shallow Waters26/05/2009
|The final phase of a refurbishment project that will allow MMT to offer coastal high-resolution surveys in shallow waters has been started. Marine survey vessel IceBeam was imported from Iceland and everything apart from the hull and engine has now been removed. It is all being replaced with an upgrade that puts the focus on technological advances and a good working environment for the many experts who will work on board.|
With her length of 40 metres, it will be possible to cost-efficiently chart the seabed with exceptional precision at depths of 5-500 metres. The equipment is advanced and versatile to ensure precise surveying and highly dependable results.
When IceBeam is launched in June 2009 the Baltic Sea and the rest of the world's oceans will have access to a vessel featuring the latest surveying technology. The task of upgrading IceBeam to the topmost standard is lead by a team of six people from MMT AB.
The crew will consist of six people to control the vessel and an additional four to ten survey technicians, depending on the nature of the project, each specialised in his or her own specific area. IceBeam is dimensioned for expeditions of up to four to six weeks. Five single cabins, seven double cabins, a messroom and a laundry as well as a gym will all be at the disposal of the crew on board. Navigation and positioning systems aid IceBeam's work, together with an ROV, sampling equipment, cameras and gradiometers make it possible to chart the seabed with considerable precision in shallow waters.

Demo of RIEGL Airborne Bathy Scanner in Camcopter UAV
It's not an AUV but an UAV. So an unmanned vehicle, but in the air instead of underwater. This movie shows a demonstration of the bathymetric laser scanning capabilities of the RIEGL VQ-820-GU hydrographic airborne sensor in reality. For more information on the technical side, please see the news release on Hydro International.
