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...

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)

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)
