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.

Hydrography as a Career
The Australian Hydrography Commission within the Surveying and Spatial Sciences Institute, in conjunction with the Royal Institution of Australia (RiAus), have created this career movie that outlines showcasing the importance of hydrography as a spatial science discipline, and positioning hydrographic surveying as a rewarding career opportunity to senior school leavers and those tertiary students studying surveying at university.
