Kongsberg Refits <i>B.I.O. Hesperides</i>

Kongsberg Maritime has completed the mid-life refit of the hydrographic survey equipment onboard the (Oceanographic Research Vessel) B.I.O Hesperides. The vessel, originally commissioned in 1991 and based in the Antarctic seas for 6 months a year, was one of the first large survey equipment installations for Kongsberg. Likewise, this is the first full mid-life refit of survey equipment carried out by the company. The survey package supplied and installed by Kongsberg Maritime was based on the EM120 1°x2° multibeam echosounder. The EM120 is a tried and tested multibeam sounder for deep water mapping with the 12 kHz operating frequency being... (read more)

Cytobuoy Instruments for Water Quality Monitoring

Cytobuoy b.v. presents a range of advanced instruments for water quality monitoring based upon the principle of flow cytometry. The instruments can be used for fresh waters, marine waters and brackish (estuarine) waters. The main feature of the instruments is their ability to detect all sorts of particles with sizes between 1 micron and 1 mm: this includes sediments and plankton. The fluorescence of the particles allows identifying different species of plankton. Processing software presents the data and the results to the user, allowing for an automatic identification of plankton species. This is the main advantage of the instrument over... (read more)

New GPS Receiver Incorporating Bluetooth Wireless Technology

CSI Wireless Inc. announced the introduction of PowerMAX, a Differential GPS (DGPS) receiver with built-in Bluetooth wireless technology. Thanks to Bluetooth, the PowerMAX communicates wirelessly with the user's computer or hand-held computing device - eliminating the need for a hard-wired data link between the devices. The PowerMAX, is primarily aimed at the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) & Mapping market. However, the product's wireless technology may be used in any industry to simplify communication between devices. In GIS & Mapping, the PowerMAX improves system ergonomics for surveyors, utilities and forestry personnel, field engineers and other professionals by reducing their cable connection... (read more)

CIS Extends RADARSAT-1 Contract

The Canadian Ice Service (CIS) has awarded RADAR-SAT-1 with another one-year contract for the supply of data for its ice-chart mapping services. With this contract, valued at CAD $1.1 million, the CIS again solidifies the continued use of RADARSAT-1 images for monitoring and mapping the movement of ice in Canadian waters. Once RSI provides the RADARSAT-1 scenes to the CIS, sometimes as many as ten images a day, personnel extract information on ice condition and location to create detailed ice charts that are electronically sent to workstations on-board marine vessels.

Washington College Takes RoxSwath

Sonavision Limited and International Industries Inc. have supplied a RoxSwath system to Washington College, Chestertown Maryland, USA. This system is a further development of the seabed classification system RoxAnn and, as the name suggests, enables the mapping of a swath of seabed reaching to almost twice the water depth. The purchase of the system follows the supply to Washington College of a RoxAnn Groundmaster in 2001, a seven-channel, shallow-water system used to identify underwater archaeological sites and map oyster beds in Chesapeake Bay. RoxAnn is now available in a number of formats specifically configured for hydrographic use, commercial fishing, dredging... (read more)
