AML Oceanographic Product Launches

AML Oceanographic will be launching two new Xchange sensor-heads and two new instruments at Oceanology International 2012 to be held from 13 to 15 March 2012 in London (UK). The addition of these products creates an ecosystem of six swappable sensor-heads - sound velocity, conductivity, temperature, pressure, dissolved oxygen and turbidity - to be deployed on any of five different instrument models. New sensor-heads include an optical dissolved oxygen sensor-head, DO·Xchange, and a nephelometric turbidity sensor-head, Turbidity·Xchange.  The new X·Series platform is Metrec·X, a multi-parameter real-time instrument designed for externally powered applications like ROVs or AUVs. The companyare is also... (read more)

Enhanced Seaglider

iRobot is introducing a newly configured Seaglider UUV which can be outfitted with a larger set of fairings that significantly increases the UUV's volume and mass payload capabilities. Payload mass is doubled over Seaglider's original design to four kilograms and payload volume has expanded by 650% to more than 21,000 cubic centimetres, resulting in the ability to integrate both larger sensors and a greater number of sensors with Seaglider.   Seaglider has five sensor payload ports that facilitate a range of capabilities. Recent development efforts have resulted in new sensor offerings for Seaglider, including a pumped sensor that measures conductivity,... (read more)

Valeport Launches Environmental Optical Sensors

Valeport, a British designer and manufacturer of hydrographic and oceanographic instruments, has launched two environmental optical sensors, a standalone turbidity sensor and a fluorometer. The first one of the new range, the Hyperion Turbidity, is the industry’s first standalone turbidity sensor that combines a Nephelometer and OBS readings in the same instrument. Created for inshore, coastal and oceanographic monitoring, this sensor delivers a minimum detection level of just 0.03 NTU (nephelometer) and can measure turbidity up to 6,000 NTU (OBS). The titanium housing, data output up to 16Hz and low power requirements ensure the sensor can be placed in situ for... (read more)

XTP Sensors Deployed on UpTempO Buoy

An experimental drifting buoy equipped with eXpendable Temperature and Pressure (XTP) sensors from Soundnine Inc (USA) was deployed for the UpTempO project. The UpTempO project, headed by Dr. Mike Steele of the University of Washington, Polar Science Center, uses inexpensive buoys to measure the Upper layer Temperature of the Polar Oceans. The buoy was deployed in northern Hudson bay on 14 June 2018 by Canadian research icebreaker CCGS Amundsen. It transmits real-time temperature and conductivity data to 25 metres deep, enabling scientists to measure the rate of surface warming as Arctic sea ice increasingly thins and retreats each summer. Pacific... (read more)

MINIpack for Antarctic Deployments

The MINIpack CTD Fluorimeter has been optimised for use in the Antarctic. The MINIpack is a very compact sensor and it has now been complimented with a low-profile guard specifically designed for deployments through ice holes. A standard ice auger hole is 250mm diameter. With the new guard the MINIpack diameter only increases from 120mm to 140mm making it suited for measurements through ice boreholes.   An internal lithium battery and removable SmartMedia card means that the MINIpack has no external connectors.   MINIpack can also be used as the core of a larger multi-parameter system. As such, it may... (read more)
