US Multiple Unmanned Vehicle Contracts

Aptima has been awarded three contracts for developing technologies to improve the control and functions of unmanned air, land, and sea vehicles (UxVs) and their integration into military operations. The Army and Navy contracts address a continuum, scaling from how individual unmanned vehicles, such as drones, can be operated with fewer personnel, to the coordination of teams of UxVs used in joint military operations.   Having evolved from a battlefield curiosity to today's use in urban warfare - for surveillance, to detect and disarm IEDs, and as weapons systems - UxVs are a part of the US military's transformation.

Dredging Point-cloud Software

Charting underwater structures, soils and project progression using GPS, sonar, single and multibeam systems produces a huge amount of data that needs to be analysed. Vast project areas can be analysed with the Point Cloud package by Pythagoras that includes user-friendly drawing, calculation and design tools and 3D visualisation of large point-cloud files and vector data. Datasets coming from total stations, GPS instruments, laser scanners, mobile mappers, UAV and drones, single and multibeam systems and other CAD and GIS software packages can be handled and processed. Calculating volumes, contour lines, cross sections, profiles, terrain models and exporting machine control datasets... (read more)

4D Ocean Maps Using Only Autonomous Platforms

4D Ocean was launched on the 3 April 2017 to provide autonomous survey services to the seabed mapping community. As a dedicated ASV, AUV and UAV operator they can supply the specialist service to companies so that they can take advantage of the performance efficiency, value for money and safety without having to have the in-house expertise or equipment investment. Duncan Mallace, 4D Ocean’s founder and managing director says “It is similar to the early days of multibeam sonars, everyone sees that autonomous survey is a great idea and the way ahead but are reluctant to invest or don’t have...

Expansion of Long-term Deep-sea Observatory in Arctic

Scientists from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) are setting out with the research vessel Polarstern towards Spitsbergen, to use newly developed equipment in the Arctic Ocean. Autonomous instruments on the seabed, in the water column and in the air will complement the long-term measurements of the deep-sea research group. In this way researchers can analyse the climatic changes in the Arctic and their impact on the fauna in the future with higher temporal and spatial resolution. For the first time, the autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) Tramper will be set on its own for... (read more)
