Logging Compass

AOSI's newest EZ-Compass-3AL Logging Compass incorporates a three-axis magnetometer with tilt and temperature compensation and a high capacity integrated logger that allows independent storage of up to 20,000 measurements, which are easily transferable to any PC. The 1.5" x 2.0"x 0.5" module weights about 11gr and outputs heading, pitch, roll, magnetic field and temperature over RS232 and RS422/RS485 ports by using all solid state components.   Compass measures tilt angles up to +-90 arcdeg (+-180 optional) and includes tilt linearization, hard and soft iron calibrations. EZ-Compass-3AVL is a vertical version and EZ-Compass-3AHL is the horizontal version. Both versions fit 0.9"... (read more)

Marine Magnetics Awarded Injunctive Relief

In February 2003, Geometrics published Technical Report M-TR135: Performance Comparisons Between Geometrics G-880/881 and Marine Magnetics SeaSPY Systems, providing test data regarding Marine Magnetics SeaSPY magnetometer. Marine Magnetics filed a civil action in United States District Court regarding statements made in M-TR135 concerning the SeaSPY product. As part of this action, Marine Magnetics sought injunctive relief to stop the distribution of M-TR135, pending trial on Marine Magnetics’ claims. The Court granted the preliminary injunction. As a result, until the case is tried later this year, M-TR135 and any data, assertions and conclusions based upon M-TR135 may not be published or... (read more)

SonarWiz Support for EdgeTech Real-time Bathymetry Systems

Chesapeake Technology (USA) has made further developments to its SonarWiz processing package with the addition of a real-time acquisition server for the EdgeTech 4600 and recently introduced EdgeTech 6205 interferometric bathymetry systems. SonarWiz can now capture and map real-time bathy data along with the sidescan data. It offers a simpler way to capture and visualise the data in real time. SonarWiz is the software that has streamlined the processing and acquisition of sidescan sonar, sub-bottom profiler and magnetometer data and now includes new bathymetric processing capabilities. This allows users to bring together, in one unified GIS workspace, all the data... (read more)

Offshore Renewable Energy Installation Completed

Marine GeoSolutions, Australia, has successfully completed an offshore marine survey in support of Carnegie Wave Energy’s CETO6 Yirra Wave Energy project. The project involved the acquisition of high-resolution hydrographic and geophysical survey data at the proposed installation sites of the wave energy array offshore of Garden Island (Western Australia), as well as along a proposed cable route that will connect the array to the shore. The survey systems utilised for the project included multibeam echosounder, inertial navigation system, sidescan sonar, magnetometer and three different sub-bottom profiling systems.  The datasets were acquired from the survey instrumentation and careful processing and interpretation...

TDI-Brooks International to Perform Site Survey in Offshore Caribbean

TDI-Brooks International, Inc. has been selected to perform three site surveys and an environmental baseline project in the Caribbean. TDI-Brooks’ multi-purpose vessel R/V Proteus will conduct the series of site, environmental baseline and habitat assessment surveys utilising sidescan, magnetometer, multibeam and subbottom profiling. The R/V Proteus is a multi-use vessel suited for a wide variety of oceanographic research duties, fully outfitted for geotechnical coring/cpt, environmental baseline survey (EBS), surface geochemical exploration (SGE), heat flow (HF) and related projects. Two well sites are at a depth of approximately 140m and a third well site lies in 650m water. The project is... (read more)

Ixsea Launches Delph Mag Locator

Ixsea launched Delph Mag Locator, a real-time magnetic filtering and mapping tool. Delph Mag Locator is the natural complement to the Magis sensor, the high-speed, high-resolution marine magnetometer, for industrial survey and object mapping. With no prerequisite in magnetic science, this real-time and batch objects mapping tool works with a single Magis sensor and provides magnetic imagery through a cutting-edge filter algorithm. It is a solution for buried objects mapping, pipe and cable survey, and shipwreck search and salvage. Its real-time geocencoded mapping capability allows see-and-act navigation. The intuitive graphic tools offer direct map display, handling and printing. Replay and... (read more)

Stage II for Tennet Offshore UXO Survey Programme

As result of the Unexploded Ordnance (UXO) threat identified from successful route survey for Tennet Offshore, MMT (Sweden) is to perform stage II in the marine UXO survey programme for the HelWin 2 project. The magnetometer targets and sidescan sonar targets that were picked from geophysical survey (stage 1), require further investigation. The purposes of the marine survey in stage II are to confirm the nature of the objects causing anomalies induced by ferrous metal objects on the Earth's magnetic field. It is also to be determined whether the location possesses an UXO risk to the cable lay operations and... (read more)
