NOAA Deputy Administrator: "I Wanna See a Kid With a NOAA Shirt"

In November, President Trump declared the United States would 'act boldly' on a gigantic task: mapping a chunk of the ocean floor that's larger than the combined land area of all 50 US states. Armed with this strong backing from the White House, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is ready to go where no man has gone before. The agency this year plans to accelerate exploration of the entire US Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), with the goal of completing the job by 2030, E&E News, a news organization focusing on energy and the environment, reports. An official described the exploration...

BlueROV2 Connected Through the Tether Cable Eliminates the Need for Batteries

Blue Robotics has announced their newest product, the Outland Technology Power Supply for the BlueROV2, which was developed and manufactured by Outland Technology of Slidell (Louisiana, US). The Outland Technology Power Supply (OTPS) provides a solution to power the BlueROV2 through the tether cable, eliminating the need for batteries and allowing it to be operated indefinitely. The OTPS is available immediately from Blue Robotics, starting at $11,300 for a complete system. The challenge with powering any ROV from the surface is the electrical power loss through the tether. A long tether with small wires, like that used on most ROVs,... (read more)

Rovco Launches Live 3D Subsea Streaming Technology

Subsea technology company Rovco (Bristol, UK) has launched 'SubSLAM Live’, a 3D streaming technology which allows users to video and live-stream 3D underwater point clouds to any device in the world. The stereo camera technology system sends images and 3D models of assets from the seabed to a computer browser in any location globally. This offers customers instantaneous access to information as an inspection or construction activity is taking place. The firm trialled the technology earlier in the year with an oil and gas Super Major, at a renewable wind farm, and more recently in 0.5m of visibility at an... (read more)

Inspection and 3D Modelling Project at Galloper Offshore Windfarm Completed

Subsea technology specialist Rovco has completed an extensive ROV inspection contract. This circa £1 million contract has resulted in the completion of the baseline asset integrity survey at the newly constructed Galloper Offshore Wind Farm, a 353MW installed capacity wind farm which lies 30km off the coast of Suffolk, UK. The project, which was awarded by Innogy Renewables UK, began in September - with 24-hour ROV operations provided over a four-week period. Rovco deployed a Cougar XT ROV fitted with both 3D imaging sonar and their SubSLAM 3D technology to complete planned asset inspection activities. The project was performed from... (read more)

Researchers Find Japanese WWII Aircraft Carrier Destroyed in the Battle of Midway

Video Included
Deep-sea explorers scouring the world’s oceans for sunken Second World War ships have uncovered the wreck of a Japanese aircraft carrier destroyed in the Battle of Midway. Fought on June 1942, the clash saw US aircraft carriers ambush their Japanese enemies and sink all four opposing Imperial Navy (IJN) flattops, thanks partly to intelligence gained through intercepted communications. The crew of the research vessel Petrel, in conjunction with the US Navy, revealed on Friday that it had found the Japanese carrier Kaga 350 miles (560 km) northwest of Midway Island, lying at a depth of 5.4km. This week, the crew... (read more)
