Traditional aspects of Oceanology International such as the visiting vessels and demonstrations programme; and education day for graduates and under-graduates are in the planning stage and continue to play a vital role in the long-standing event.

Demo of RIEGL Airborne Bathy Scanner in Camcopter UAV
It's not an AUV but a 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.
