North Sea Laser Survey Work

UTEC StarNet has announced that the company is currently performing laser surveys on the Shearwater platform in the North Sea. The survey work follows on from a recently-completed project on the Shell Gannet platform and involves use of technology to digitally capture, in high detail, a 3D data-set of the entire production asset. The survey will encompass all major structural elements, piping, all fixtures and fittings, production equipment, safety systems, communication equipment, plant rooms and drilling derrick to a very high, accurate and reliable detail.   The survey will produce a complete and measureable point cloud that, in conjunction with...

ULS-500 Underwater Laser Scanner Interface for QINSy

The 2G Robotics ULS-500 underwater laser scanner is compatible with QPS’s QINSy. Recently, 2G Robotics performed a structure inspection demonstration with a customer to validate the ease of operation and demonstrate the capabilities of the ULS-500 system. To collect the data in profile mode, the ULS-500 published data in LAS format into QINSy. QINSy was interfaced directly to ROV sensors (high-end INS, Doppler) and the ULS-500 to correct for ROV altitude in real time and to georeference using INS position updates aided by Doppler in order to position the ULS-500 data and build a complete 3D model. In this trial,... (read more)

Fugro Partners on ‘4S’ Global Satellite Observation Seafloor Mapping Innovation

Fugro is participating in an EU co-funded research and innovation project to develop a remote solution for global satellite-derived seafloor mapping. The three-year project, named ‘4S’ (Satellite Seafloor Survey Suite), will develop an online cloud-based solution that will use highly automated earth observation algorithms and workflows to remotely map and monitor seafloor habitats, morphology and shallow water bathymetry. Fugro will lead the project’s business and integration actions, and their hydrographers and geodata specialists will evaluate the solution via several use cases around the globe. Integration of Satellite Data Analytics into Marine and Coastal Workflows 4S will leverage artificial intelligence, physics... (read more)

ORCA Pilot Chart Mapper Increases Pilot Flexibility

ORCA Pilot Chart Mapper is a new complementary tool for SevenC's PPU software, ORCA Pilot G2. It has been developed to make pilots more independent, flexible and up to date when it comes to high-precision charts in local areas. Chart Mapper creates an optional chart layer with high-density depth information for display in a PPU within seconds! It is common practice to export and exchange depth information data in xyz format. ORCA Pilot Chart Mapper reads xyz point cloud data and processes it to create S-57 high density bathymetry layers – e.g. bathymetric ENCs.   (read more)

Applying Side-scan Sonar and an AI-powered Platform for Environmental Protection

Over the past few years, the University of Delaware, USA, has participated in a state programme which supports rescuing abandoned crab pots from the seabed and researches technologies to make the search process more effective. It has developed advanced sonar surveys from a boat with further map storage and processing in SPH Engineering’s ATLAS AI-powered platform. The evaluations proved to be time-effective and more accurate in comparison to the detections of human annotators.  Blue crab fishing is a popular commercial and recreational activity throughout the United States. In order to catch these crabs, people use 'crab pots'. These devices are placed... (read more)
