Ashtead Technology Invests in Calibration Laboratories21/03/2012
|Subsea equipment rental company Ashtead Technology, UK, has made an investment in order to operate established equipment calibration facilities in all its office locations. In addition to the standard range of product calibration services, the Singapore and Aberdeen branches offer the ability to calibrate depth, temperature, conductivity and sound velocity equipment to manufacturers' standards.|
These calibration facilities have been audited and approved by Valeport Ltd (UK), a manufacturer of oceanographic instrumentation for the survey industry.
Ashtead engineers have undergone specialist calibration training at Valeport, Ocean Scientific and Tritech. The labs have been developed in close collaboration with these manufacturers to ensure the same high level of calibration standards will be obtained.
As part of Ashtead Technology’s new Integrated Technical Services initiative these calibration facilities are being made available to the customer base, providing a quality approved, local, and fast calibration facility for CTDs and SV probes. The benefit of these labs is that it will allow cost savings to be passed onto the customer, by significantly reducing the amount of money spent on external calibrations. It will also ensure higher availability of equipment, by reducing the period of time taken to calibrate equipment through the removal of shipping time to/from the manufacturer.

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.
