APOMAB Celebrates One Year Of Activity21/09/2011
|The Academy of Marine Positioning Bathymetry (APOMAB, Italy) is celebrating its first year of activity. This past year has far exceeded expectations as the association has collaborated with several international research centres in order to deepen the knowledge in the field of bathymetry and marine positioning. Student members have also established the Second Scientific Manifest in English.|
An important consideration that led to the establishment A.PO.MA.B, filling a gap, a course in collaboration with some companies. Miceli, who is a member of the Hydrographic Society of America, continues: "The training comes from an analysis of the needs for innovation and training in the world of offshore work. Sector entrepreneurs reported difficulties in finding workers because the techniques are specialised, able to assume responsibility with the government and control of marine construction activities related to installation and maintenance. The young graduates, which come mainly from a technical institute for surveyors, are entering the professional world with a good technical-theoretical, but with little preparation on the operational professional abilities. Why companies cannot easily find technical staff with medium-high profile in a short time able to take important decision-making roles within a construction site. As a result, some companies continue to seek and experienced staff already busy trying to 'withdraw' from other local companies, so without ever being able to balance the demand and supply of skilled technical personnel." The training aims to train the best of the 'offshore surveyor' which must have a diversified role within the company offshore services. It is for this reason that the training is organised according to training units to provide students with knowledge.
The programme modules follow a number of guidelines, in particular IMCA C004 S30 and S31 Rev2 November 2009, which would be the minimum standards IMCA charged for 'SURVEYOR GRADE II'. These were added such as additional training modules to support English and offshore construction. "Our primary source of innovation and development," says Miceli. "We are given from research done in books, scientific publications, sources of IHO standards: International Hydrography Organization based in Monaco, or through the direct exchange of scientific and technological institutions which made the A. PO.MA.B. is in contact. Our guidelines follow those set by the Hydrographic Society of America."

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.
