Hydrographic Surveys in MONALISA Project31/05/2012
|MMT (Sweden) has been awarded parts of two separate hydrographic survey contracts for the EU-financed MONALISA project for the Swedish Maritime Administration (SMA) and the Finnish Transport Agency (FTA). MONALISA is a Motorways of the Sea project which aims at making a tangible contribution to efficient, safe and environmentally friendly maritime transport. This is done through development, demonstration and dissemination of innovative e-navigational services to the shipping industry, which can lay the groundwork for a future international deployment.|
The Swedish Maritime Administration (SMA) awarded MMT part of the contract, “Baltic Sea and Bothnian Surveys 2012-13” (BSB12-13). SMA is the government agency primarily responsible for providing infrastructural services in the form of safe and accessible fairways to meet the needs of shipping in territorial as well as in EEZ waters. A comprehensive MBES survey of the areas is critical for the efficient routing and safe navigation of all types of shipping especially with regards to deep draught shipping. The results of these hydrographic surveys will be used in updating nautical charts and associated navigational publications.
MMT will perform a hydrographic survey on Swedish shipping routes in the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Bothnia. The survey is planned to be carried out with Kongsbergs EM2040D multibeam echosounder and the work will commence in July 2012.
MMT has also been awarded a part of the contract “Baltic Sea and Bay of Bothnia Hydrographic Surveys 2012” (BSBB2012) by the Finnish Transport Agency (FTA). In this contract, MMT will undertake the hydrographic survey of the Finnish parts of the Northern Baltic Sea and in the Bay of Bothnia. The hydrographic survey work is to be performed according to the hydrographic survey specifications based on the IHO S-44 ed.5 standard.

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.
