Falcon Real-time Data Transfer

The Falcon (standalone), and Falconet (integrated) Data to Web system provides a low-cost and flexible solution for transmitting, storing, hosting and presenting data from all common sensors to a dedicated website in real time.     The new system can communicate using GPRS, GSM, radio or satellite, can be coupled to almost any sensor, and can be retrofitted to existing platforms. Data is presented on a dedicated website with a password access, using secure servers, and can interface with existing data gatherer and SCADA systems. Multiple sites can be displayed on one screen, with inputs from multiple sensors. Applications can... (read more)

Chesapeake Real-time StrataBox Interface

SonarWiz.MAP is the new real-time interface for the SyQwest, Inc. StrataBox subbottom profiling sonar. According to CTI President, Eileen Gann said that the new SonarWiz.MAP real-time interface allows users to collect StrataBox data simultaneously with sidescan, single beam echosounder and magnetometer sensors in one program.   SonarWiz.MAP is a real-time time data acquisition, real-time mosaic and post-processing system used worldwide by commercial, government and academic institutions. Recent enhancements to SonarWiz.MAP include magnetometer collection and post-processing, subbottom data intersection management, and 3D data export in Fledermaus format. (read more)

Real-time Marine Monitoring Systems

Forecasting ocean and regional sea-state
The seas are being monitored, from satellite observations of the ocean surface to the growing number of in-situ measurement networks. The amount of information being generated is huge and should ideally provide a consistent 3D picture of ocean-state, including temperature fields and current structures. Indeed, this is the expectation of a wide range of organisations and individuals engaged in coastal and offshore activities, who would prefer such forecasts to be in the shape of a synoptic overview of present conditions augmented by prediction of two or three weeks. In order to merge all past information and produce a forecast, models... (read more)

NOAA Real-time Wave Monitoring

The NOAA National Ocean Service, Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) has installed a real-time wave/current measurement system in the Chesapeake Bay (MD, USA) using a bottom-mounted RD Instruments ADCP to measure complete frequency-direction wave spectra along with the current profiles. The acoustic modem, with its wireless connection, is a method for data communication between the ADCP and the surface buoy, eliminating the need for underwater cables that are expensive to install and maintain. However, the huge amount of data generated from the wave measurement may pose a serious challenge to the acoustic modem's robustness and power requirement.... (read more)

Physical Oceanographic Real-time System

Real-time Data Improve Safety, Spur the Economy and Benefit the Environment
Physical Oceanographic Real-Time System (PORTS) is a growing programme providing a range of navigation safety, economic and natural resource protection benefits. The programme is managed by the National Ocean Service (NOS), part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The NOS are responsible for providing oceanographic data and other navigation products in order to promote safe and efficient navigation within US waters. Here we discuss the proven benefits of PORTS and elements required to ensure delivery of high-quality real-time data.<P> View Larger Map Since maritime commerce has tripled in the last 50 years in US waters, there is a growing...

Real-time Remote System Monitoring

Teledyne Benthos has released the Teledyne Gateway Buoy, which is designed to provide customers with real-time data monitoring of their subsea sensors from a remote shore station. The new gateway buoy is useful for a range of applications and incorporates the reliability of Teledyne Benthos' ATM-886 modem. The buoy is two-man deployable, uses rechargeable batteries and has a deployment life of up to two months using Freewave transmission to a shore station. "The Teledyne Gateway Buoy gives our modem family of products a flexible surface platform with internal space for specific customer options", stated Bob Melvin, Director of Engineering for...

Real-time Current Measurement Systems

Metocean Services International (MSI, Australia) has completed the installation of three real-time current profile monitoring buoys offshore Curtis Island at Gladstone in Queensland, Australia, for Arrow Energy as part of a 3-year monitoring programme. With a tidal range at site in the order of 4m and currents in excess of 2 knots already observed in the first week, the buoys will provide important real-time current profile data to assist with future planning as well as current vessel operations. Each buoy comprising a 1.25m data buoy fitted with a TRDI current profiler as well as Satel radio and JouBeh iridium transmitters.... (read more)

Real Time Flow Information System

Flow information for the whole area; today and tomorrow
Ships and their pilots have difficulties in entering a harbour during periods of relatively high flow velocities. We developed a system that gives real time depth average flow velocity and direction vectors over a large area. The system also predicts the flow in that area for 24 hours, allowing ships to plan their voyage more accurately and safely. The system consists of a Horizontal Current Profiler which is mounted at the side of the river. A computer flow model computes the depth average flow in the area based on measured flow and on measured water levels. The flow prediction is... (read more)
