Impact Subsea Launch ISD4000 Depth & Temperature Sensor

Impact Subsea is launching the ISD4000 survey grade Depth & Temperature sensor with optional integrated HMRU, providing the user with heading, pitch and roll values. Designed for ROV & AUV underwater applications, the ISD4000 offers a significant degree of capability, in a small form factor. With a 0.01% full scale depth measurement accuracy combined with a Temperature measurement accuracy of 0.01°C the ISD4000 is at the forefront of depth and temperature measurement technology. Compact and Endurable At only 8cm (3.1”) long, 4.5cm (1.8”) wide and weighing just 0.42kg (0.93lb) in air makes the ISD4000 a highly compact unit. This form... (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...

OFG Self-compensating Magnetometer Added to Teledyne Gavia Sensor Suite

Teledyne Gavia, manufacturer of the Gavia autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), has completed trials of the AUV self-compensating magnetometer (SCM) from Ocean Floor Geophysics (OFG). Following successful integration and field trials in Iceland of the OFG SCM on the Teledyne Gavia AUV, the sensor system is now being offered as part of the ever-expanding suite of tools available to Gavia users. CEO of OFG, Matthew Kowalczyk elaborated on the principal advantage of the SCM system: “There are many magnetometer technologies available on the market. The requirement that drove the development of the SCM system was to remove the need to tow... (read more)

OGC and Smart Ocean Sensor Consortium to Collaborate

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and the Smart Ocean Sensor Consortium (SOSC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to advance sensor observing systems for the oceans community. The two organisations will participate in joint outreach and marketing activities to raise awareness and interest in smart sensor systems and sensor web enablement. The organisations' first cooperative activity will focus on the Monterey Bay Research Institute's (MBARI) PUCK protocol for hydrographic sensor configuration. The PUCK protocol specification has been submitted to the OGC as a candidate standard.Mark Reichardt, president and ceo of the OGC says that this agreement is a natural... (read more)

Planet Ocean Distributes Radac Radar Wave & Tide Sensor

Planet Ocean (UK) has signed an exclusive representation agreement with Radac (The Netherlands). The agreement covers the UK and Republic of Ireland. Radac has been developing the WaveGuide system since 1996. This high-quality radar-based system monitors waves, tides and water levels. The WaveGuide is compact, reliable and robust. Where a fixed structure such as a platform, turbine or jetty already exists, it offers a simpler-to-install, largely maintenance-free alternative to buoy-based systems. The WaveGuide is a standalone system, which requires no calibration. It incorporates a web interface which allows direct access to the wave data. Unique to Radac is the WaveGuide... (read more)

Valeport's New Sound Velocity Sensor Goes Through-the-Hull

Valeport has just launched a new addition to its range of sound velocity sensors. The Modus SVS Through-Hull is designed for through-the-hull applications. The Modus SVS takes real time measurements, and can also collect data about pressure and temperature as well as sound velocity. By using a clever mounting system, the sensor can simply be pushed from the ship's hull, quickly and efficiently, whilst the vessel is afloat. It's also easy to remove, making cleaning and maintaining the sensor a straightforward task. The sensor is ideal for applications such as the calibration of swath sonars or echosounders mounted on vessels,... (read more)

Successful Sea Trials for TRIAXYS g3 Wave Sensor

AXYS Technologies’ TRIAXYS g3 wave sensor has successfully completed a series of rigorous sea trials. The trials were conducted both in the German Bight and off the West Coast of Canada and used both AXYS' own TRIAXYS wave buoy and other industry standard buoys as references. The TRIAXYS g3 demonstrated high levels of correlation against all reference buoys, confirming that the TRIAXYS g3 sensor meets AXYS' high standards of accuracy for wave height and direction measurement. The TRIAXYS g3 is a next generation solid state wave sensor which offers, among other new features, frequency partitioning, continuous wave analysis and processing... (read more)

First Use of TRIAXYS Next Wave II Sensor

International engineering and project management company AMEC (UK) will be the first company to receive the TRIAXYS Next Wave II sensor integrated into its WatchMate met-ocean monitoring buoy. The TRIAXYS Next Wave II has recently been released as the new wave sensor for measuring directional waves and motion. Major improvements include: reduced power consumption by nearly half, significant reduction in the sensor size and weight, and an increase in wave data accuracy and resolution. AMEC will be using the WatchMate 1.8 DM buoy to receive comprehensive environmental data, which will support marine construction operations. The WatchMate will transmit directional waves,...

Twin Spread Sensor for PI Catch Monitoring System

Simrad has announced the availability of a new sensor for use with its PI Catch Monitoring system. The twin spread sensor has been designed to make twin spread control affordable and works on single, twin or multi trawls. It is capable of supplying information about door spread and door stability in order to maximize the performance of the trawl. Mounted with ease using a door adapter, the twin spread sensor monitors the spread and stability between doors and between port door and centre weight. This information can then be used to detect incorrect rigging of doors or sweeps allowing the... (read more)
