ASL Announces Next Generation in Acoustic Backscatter Measurements

A new tool to measure both sediment concentration and sediment size are being built by ASL Environmental Sciences (ASL). The Multi-frequency Ultrasonic Device (MUD) is based on ASL's successful Acoustic Zooplankton Fish Profiler (AZFP). The MUD and AZFP echosounders can be configured with up to four frequencies ranging from 38 kHz to 2 MHz. The MUD prototype is based on a set of higher frequencies (200 kHz, 769 kHz, 1.2 MHz and 2.0 MHz) that will allow for a broad range of particle size discrimination. While the AZFP is a high gain device for low scattering conditions and the greatest... (read more)

Habitat Classification Added to Echoview

With the 2014 release of Echoview 6 comes the module Habitat Classification that sees Echoview’s processing capabilities extended to acoustic bottom data. The Habitat Classification module will enable the user to classify river-bed, lake-bottom and seafloor types from single, dual and split-beam echosounder data. Echoview saw a need for bottom classification capabilities in Echoview. Users can now process and analyse even more aspects of their hydroacoustic data, and benefit from the simplicity of doing this in a single workspace. The Habitat Classification module integrates into Echoview’s workflow. Users will be able to bring their echosounder data into Echoview, visualise, calibrate... (read more)

Ageotec Delivers Perseo GTV

Ageotec, Italy, has delivered to Cadden (France) its first Perseo GTV. The Perseo GTV fills a gap in deep-sea survey and intervention ROV operations, being an alternative to existing higher-class vehicles whenever cost-effective solutions are required in terms of shipping, handling and vessel support. It can include payloads like multi-beam echosounders and cutters or manipulators. Main standard vehicle's specifications are: 1,500m depth rating, 200kg weight, 1.5m length x 0.9m width x 0.8m height, adjustable payload from 18 to 40kg, three real-time high-resolution video channels and 8 serial data lines on single-mode fibre optic umbilical. Due to a modular design, all... (read more)

Economic Surveying in Middle-East and Siberia

No Limit Ships has received an order for a No Limit Professional from MRTS, Russia, for surveys in and around the Caspian Sea. The vessel is to be delivered in May 2012. In the end of last year, deliveries have been taking place of several vessels with jobs in the Middle-East. The No Limit Professional vessels facilitate surveying with a multi-beam echosounder at a high speed, which is economically attractive as a big area can be mapped in a short time. In the summer of 2010, a No Limit 1640 Professional has been transported to Qatar to survey in the... (read more)

Kongsberg Sonar and Multibeam Systems for Swedish Submarines

Defence and security company SAAB, Sweden, has selected a Kongsberg Maritime hydroacoustic package for installation on two Swedish A19 submarines. The delivery will consist of SA9510S mine avoidance and navigation sonar for submarines and the leading EM 2040 Dual RX multibeam echosounder. The main purpose of the SA9510S sonar is to detect mines, obstacles and the sea-floor in a wide swath ahead of the submarine. The sonar generates target warnings or alarms with sufficient time available to perform an avoidance manoeuvre. It is a vital tool providing information to crew for bottom navigation purposes and for submerged navigation. The SA9510S... (read more)
