S-Boom Technology for Fugro23/01/2012
|Fugro Survey (Middle East) Ltd has ordered Applied Acoustics' S-Boom sub-bottom profiling system for its geophysical survey operations based out of Abu Dhabi (UAE). Developed for shallow-water, ultra-high resolution surveys, the S-Boom system had been undergoing extensive trials with Fugro during the late summer of 2011 before being accepted and selected at the end of that year.|
S-Boom sub bottom profiling systems combine the power of three modified boomer plates to provide a single pulse, driven by a single source power supply. The fusion of these three transducers delivers a source level high enough to significantly increase sub-bottom penetration without loss of data quality.
Capable of operating at a maximum energy setting of 1,000 Joules per pulse, and firing at three pulses per second, the S-Boom has achieved penetration results of over 200ms through sand and limestone whilst delivering the resolution records expected from boomer systems.

Nigerian Navy Celebrates World Hydrography Day
In many countries, World Hydrography Day has been celebrated by paying attention to the wider use of hydrographic data than only for nautical charting. This also was the case as this recording of the Nigerian WHD celebration shows. We could not find an announcement of the purchase of a hydrographic survey vessel during the movie.
