Collaborating to Make ROVs Small and User-friendly

Putting together a highly specified remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) is a complex business, requiring fluid integration of components and software from several different manufacturers. Getting it all to work together takes a high level of collaboration between professionals, located around the world. When VideoRay was designing a subsea vehicle so compact it could be checked in as luggage at the airport, it teamed up with Nortek to keep the size down, while keeping the positioning accuracy high. A case in point is the deployment of Nortek’s DVL1000 Doppler Velocity Log on the Defender models now being produced by Pennsylvania-based... (read more)

Chart-quality Wide Swath Sonar Deployed on Man-Portable AUV

A man-portable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) has been fitted with a wide swath sonar, capable of collecting bathymetry data for chart use. The Gavia AUV was fitted with a GeoSwath Plus 500 kHz sonar, and was demonstrated end of March 2007 in Singapore. Over 90 people witnessed a beach-based launch-collect-recover mission from the Changi Sailing Club (CSC) beach. The Gavia was programmed to run a short survey pattern, collecting GeoSwath sonar data. For this type of mission, the modular Gavia base vehicle was fitted with the GeoSwath 500 kHz sonar module, an RD Instruments doppler velocity log (DVL) and a... (read more)

HIPAP Sea Current Meter

Kongsberg Maritime has developed a new system for measuring sea current speed and direction at given points on a drilling riser, which can be integrated with its High Precision Acoustic Positioning and underwater navigation system, HiPAP. The Sea Current Meter and HiPAP package is designed to improve control of drilling operations and has already been delivered to the first user.   The Sea Current Meter package consists of a Doppler Velocity Log (DVL) interfaced to a telemetry transponder, which sends the 3D sea current data via acoustics to the onboard HiPAP system. There are virtually no limits to the number... (read more)

C-Innovation ROVs on Track

C-Innovation, UK, has placed a major order for SPRINT inertial navigation systems (INS) from Sonardyne International Ltd. Working closely with C-Innovation to understand the requirements when using Schilling’s UHD ROVs in  operations, SPRINT has been fully integrated into these ROVs, including the use of specialised Seanet connectors. This resulted in a tested, standardised configuration that supports a dedicated AHRS or INS output direct to the ROV with an automatic mode switch. A configuration that allows the system to be used as both a high-performance AHRS for typical ROV guidance or as an INS that provides automatic station keeping capability for... (read more)
