MEMS Technology – Applications in the Field of Hydrography

Even in the difficulty times facing society today, training does not stop, as demonstrated by the 'MEMS Technology – Presentation and Hydrographic Application' conference held by video conference on 26 May on the GoToMeeting platform. The conference was organized by SBG Systems, Institute Nautical ITTL Luigi Rizzo di Riposto (CT), and IHS Italian Hydrographic Society. MEMS stands for Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems and indicates a technology that integrates mechanical elements, sensors, actuators and electronics located at the level of a silicon substrate.The conference was attended by many experts from the hydrographic sector: Rear Admiral Luigi Sinapi, director of the Italian Hydrographic...

Hydrographic Education During a Lockdown

Experiences in the Netherlands
On 12 March, the Dutch government decided to ‘lockdown’ all activities involving multiple persons, including education. That decision immediately affected the hydrographic institutions in the Netherlands. The Netherlands has an active four-year Cat A course in Ocean Technology at the NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences – Maritime Institute Willem Barentsz (MIWB), and a 3+3 month Cat B course at Skilltrade. Both had to cope with the lockdown in different ways due to their different set-ups and student populations. Organizational Situation After Lockdown Although education is not a ‘contact’ profession in the strict sense (or at least it shouldn’t be),... (read more)
