Remote Hydrography Conference and Exhibition Postponed to September - 19/03/2020

The Remote Hydrography Conference and small accompanying exhibition, originally scheduled for 6–7 May 2020, has been postponed to 23–24 September 2020, following the latest set of measures issued by the UK government, according to a recent publication of the UK Hydrographic Office.

Hydrographic surveying, and the roles of its practitioners, are in the midst of a paradigm shift. The development and adoption of disruptive technologies, techniques and solutions are increasing survey capacity, capabilities and productivity like never before, whilst simultaneously reducing the risks and costs involved.

Autonomous and unmanned aerial, surface and underwater survey platforms, remote survey command and support services, and techniques such as Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB), Crowdsourced Bathymetry (CSB), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Forward-Looking Sonar (FLS) are revolutionizing hydrographic data collection, processing, analysis and presentation.

  • Would you like to learn more about these new disruptive technologies?
  • Would you like to discover how to adopt and adapt to these new processes and technologies?
  • Would you like an insight into how these concepts could add value to your business?

Remote and Automated Hydrography

Through an inspiring programme of keynote speakers, presentations and panel-led discussion forums, the two-day Remote Hydrography conference and exhibition will focus on the latest innovations, applications and deployments in remote and automated hydrography. It will consider how these tools are providing novel approaches, efficiencies and benefits to the commercial survey industry, as well as enhancing the exploration and mapping of the world's seafloor, population of the white spaces on charts, improvement of navigational safety and implementation of e-Navigation and autonomous shipping.
