Canadian-UK Collaboration for Tidal Sensor Technologies

Canadian and British researchers will join forces to collaborate on two projects in developing new sensing technologies for tidal energy applications. The two project teams each feature industry and academic expertise from Canada and the UK and will introduce environmental monitoring and measurement sensor systems aiming to reduce risk and uncertainties associated with the deployment and operation of in-stream tidal devices. Sensor deployment and testing will be carried out in both Canadian and UK waters. Additional expected outcomes are to build Nova Scotia technical capacity in tidal energy and to contribute to the sector’s emerging global supply chain. The two... (read more)

Imagenex Adds Sonar and Sensor Interface Relay

Imagenex has released the Model 878 high-resolution sidescan sonar which runs two sonars simultaneously on each side at different sound wavelengths for enhanced image clarity. The new DT100 Sensor Interface Relay (SIR) provides a central connection point for bathymetric sensors including sonar (1 or 2 units), GPS, MRU, gyro/heading, and sound velocity. The DT100 multibeam echo sounder has been revised. The sidescan sonar Model 878 'RGB' (triple simultaneous frequencies) has undergone a facelift and become more affordable. Both models are equipped with an optional echo sounder and a built-in orientation module as well as depth and temperature sensors. Powered by... (read more)

Longest Multi-Sensor AUV Pipeline Inspection

KONGSBERG has completed the world's longest multi-sensor AUV pipeline survey using one of its HUGIN 1000 Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV). The pipeline inspection took place from 9th to 11th February 2011, in the Hjelte fjord near Bergen, Norway and the HUGIN 1000 was operated from the Royal Norwegian Navy vessel HNoMS Maloy. The subject of the inspection was two subsea pipelines going to the Mongstad oil refinery. The HUGIN 1000 AUV was equipped with a suite of KONGSBERG imaging equipment including the HISAS 1030 synthetic aperture sonar, EM3002 multi-beam echo sounder and an optical camera with LED lighting. The instruments... (read more)

C6 Multi-Sensor Platform Digital Data Output

The submersible C6 Multi-Sensor Platform integrates up to six field-interchangeable Cyclops-7 fluorometers and/or turbidity sensors. Now the C6 is available with digital data output for integration with third-party platforms. The C-Soft Windows-based user interface allows for intuitive calibration, data logging, and data management. And the digital data output allows for easy integration with existing water monitoring systems such as CTDs, dataloggers, vessels of opportunity and buoys.   Deployable up to a depth of 600 metres, C6 booster cables allow RS232 communication at depths greater than 5 metres. Customers who already own a C6 can download a free software upgrade from... (read more)

Game-changing Sensor and AI System for Plymouth Sound

M Subs has installed a ‘game-changing’ sensor system with connected artificial intelligence (AI) and machine-learning technology around Plymouth Sound, UK, as part of the vision to turn the city into a centre of excellence in maritime autonomy and unmanned vehicles. The Plymouth-based company will operate a secure network of cameras, radars, and other sensors which will provide situational awareness and communications with the unmanned vehicles operating out of the city’s harbour. The system will also provide the command & control of unmanned vehicles using the nearby ranges at sea.  Data from the network is being collected and analysed by machine... (read more)

EIVA Expands ScanFish ROTV Sensor Platform Payload by 700%

The EIVA ScanFish remotely operated towed vehicle (ROTV) is designed to function as a platform for subsea sensors. It comes with a maximum sensor payload of 50kg as standard, but the total payload capacity for the EIVA ScanFish is 350kg. The EIVA R&D team took up the challenge in May 2017 and four months later, a ScanFish XL was introduced at the EIVA Days Denmark 2017. The ROTV itself measures 4.33x2.73x2.77 metres. It weighs 1840kg in air but is neutrally buoyant in water. A design upgrade was needed when the marine geophysical-geotechnical service delivery specialist PanGeo Subsea contacted EIVA to discuss...
