Two Oceanographic Research Vessels for Indonesian Navy

A Fruitful Cooperation Between SHOM and OCEA Shipyard
In December 2013, SHOM and OCEA French shipyard decided to enter into a technical cooperation for the construction of two modern 60m aluminum hydrographic/Oceanographic research Survey Vessels (OSVs) ordered by the Indonesian Navy, after an international competition won by OCEA. This article describes the close partnership that led to the successful delivery in 2015 of the Rigel (11 March) and Spica (17 October) sister ships of the OSV190 range of OCEA (Figure 1), fitted with hydrographic launches and undersea exploration vehicles (AUV & ROV). These two OSVs are dedicated to the exploration of Indonesian waters for a better knowledge of... (read more)

Pacific Oceanographic Data Comparison Wins PacX Challenge

Liquid Robotics, USA, named Dr Tracy Villareal, professor of marine science at the University of Texas in Austin, as the winner of its PacX Challenge on 24 September 2013 at the Oceans’13 MTS/IEEE scientific conference. His research focused on a comparison of scientific spatial data collected from US satellite streams to in situ or surface data collected by four PacX Wave Gliders. Dr Villareal studied the detection and behaviour of large phytoplankton species critical to removing carbon from the ocean’s surface and a major food source for the deep sea. His findings provide the scientific community with valuable surface validation... (read more)

T-AGS 60 Class Oceanographic Survey Ships

In 1989 the Oceanographer of the Navy approved the construction of a new class of multimission oceanographic survey ship for the Naval Oceanographic Office, the T-AGS 60 class. The initial focus of the survey mission was primarily blue water oceanography. In the intervening years mission focus has shifted toward the littoral. This article presents the class mission capability and discusses the mission evolution to the littoral and the incorporation of a hydrographic survey capability which meets International Hydrographic Office requirements. It has been 13 years since the Oceanographer of the Navy established the requirements for the T-AGS 60 class oceanographic... (read more)

Oceanographic and Oil Spill Tracking Buoy

Fastwave (Australia) has commercially released the Voyager satellite tracking buoy, after an extended period of development and testing. The Voyager provides near-real-time ocean current, sea surface temperature and oil spill tracking data via Iridium satellite telemetry. The hull design and low freeboard ensures close coupling with the ocean surface layer and minimises wind influence, ensuring accurate tracking of the surface layer. The Voyager is simple to operate and deploy, making it suitable for oil spill response and search and rescue missions. It is also suitable for extended oceanographic studies, being capable of sending a report every four hours for up... (read more)

AML Oceanographic’s MVP200 Selected for Swedish Research Vessel

AML Oceanographic has announced that a Moving Vessel Profiler is being installed on one of the most modern research vessels in the world, the Swedish vessel 'RV Svea'. The newbuild Swedish vessel, owned by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), will be used by the university and the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) for a wide variety of environmental surveys, from monitoring ocean acidification to assessing fish stock. By including a Moving Vessel Profiler (MVP), the scientists expect to gain a clearer understanding of the oceanographic dynamics encountered in the Baltic Sea, such as strong halocline layers and...

AML Acquires MVP Product Line from Rolls-Royce

AML Oceanographic, Canada, has purchased the global rights to the Moving Vessel Profiler (MVP) product line from Rolls-Royce Canada. Originally developed in Halifax by Brooke Ocean Technology (BOT) and later owned by Rolls-Royce, the MVP system is widely known as the industry standard in high-speed, underway profiling. This acquisition enables AML to provide an integrated profiling platform to the hydrographic survey market. According to AML CEO Robert Haydock, many MVP users are already AML customers and vice-versa. This purchase makes AML a provider of end-to-end vertical profiling solutions for AML’s core hydrographic customers. The MVP user base is distributed throughout... (read more)

AML CTDs with UV•Xchange Chosen by Ocean Networks Canada

AML Oceanographic has been selected to supply CTDs for Ocean Networks Canada’s Smart Oceans programme. AML Metrec•X instruments will be deployed on cabled observatory platforms off Canadian coasts to provide data imperative to improving environmental monitoring and marine safety. AML’s award-winning UV•Xchange and Cabled UV will prevent biofouling of Xchange and other environmental sensors on each CTD, in addition to other critical surfaces of the platform. The prevention of fouling-induced drift will allow the sensors to provide accurate data for the duration of the in-situ deployments.  (read more)
