AML Oceanographic Wins Innovative Excellence Award

AML was crowned the champion of Innovative Excellence at the VIATeC Technology Awards on 20 June 2014. The Innovative Excellence Award recognises a company that has designed and produced a revolutionary product. AML defeated its opponents with the development of the biofouling control product UV•Xchange. UV•Xchange prevents fouling by bathing critical surfaces in ultraviolet light, keeping the desired area clean and sensor data accurate. Unlike other existing methods of biofouling control, UV•Xchange inhibits marine growth without any contact or chemical pollution, and is suitable for surfaces of complex geometry. Now in its 13th year, the VIATeC Technology Awards hosted over... (read more)

WECDIS and AML

The future of electronic charts in warfare at sea
Concepts concerning WECDIS and AML (Additional Military Layers) to support warfare at sea have been developed for quite a few years - now they are being realised. It was more than five years ago that NATO developed ideas concerning how navigation could be made safer, whilst at the same time bundling and providing additional information. The problem was, and still is, that in addition to the data necessary for navigation there are lots of specialist charts. This results in the same information being published not just once but several times, by various publishers, and designed to fit the requirements of... (read more)

Energy for Oceanographic Mapping

Oceanographers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks are installing a new alternative energy device along the arctic coast of Alaska. After two years of design and development, the device will provide power to scientific instruments in remote areas, where sources of electricity are often scarce. The device, called a remote power module, is equipped with four wind turbines, a solar array and a backup generator. The wind and solar energy provide five days' worth of battery charge. If the batteries get low, the module recharges using a biodiesel generator.Scientists will install the module in Barrow this month and test it... (read more)
