Remote Survey Services

The newly developed FANSSRTmtechnology facilitates safe and secure connections to offshore survey systems from anywhere on the globe. A new range of remote services (see Figure 1) is based on this technology, making it possible to remotely monitor, control and QC offshore operations. Savings in operational costs for clients, minimised risks of operational delays and reduced exposure to health, safety and environment (HSE) risks for offshore staff are the major benefits.<P> Around 4,000 years ago, thePhoenicians were the first to achieve offshore navigation by the use of primitive coastal maps and observations of the sun and stars to determine their...

Energy for Remote Community

Swathe Services was recently commissioned by Falmouth Divers to assist on a 4km submarine power cable installation to a remote island community on behalf of one of their clients in Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK. Working from the Grey Bear, a landing craft type vessel provided by Falmouth Divers, Swathe Services conducted a heave-compensated singlebeam echo sounder (SBES) survey of the proposed cable route. The SBES data was processed on site and a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) of the cable route was produced. On selection of a route, tidal flow measurements were taken to allow the cable lay vessel to plan the... (read more)

Remote HDB Chart Masters

IIC Technologies has been selected by the UK Hydrographic Office to provide Hydrographic Database (HDB) services. IIC will help populate the UKHO's hydrographic database using secure, remote connection technology.     From this seamless, harmonised database, IIC will then remotely produce HDB paper chart masters which are then used by the UKHO to produce paper charts. The program focuses on two of IIC's core capabilities: CARIS HPD and Citrix remote connectivity expertise. The two year contract has an option to extend for a further three years.     (read more)

Seaview Sensing Develops for ACORN

Seaview Sensing are now deploying systems in Australia as part of the Australian Coastal Ocean Radar Network (ACORN). The ACORN project is part of the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) which is a distributed set of equipment and data-information services which collectively contribute to meeting the needs of marine climate research in Australia.     Seaview Realtime Software works with HF radar. The ACORN project is utilising the WERA HF radar system. The network started within the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland Australia and is currently expanding to include radar nodes on the south and west coasts, all with Seaview... (read more)

Remote Multi-Mission Vehicle Delivery

The second production Remote Multi-Mission Vehicle (RMMV) has recently been delivered to the U.S. Navy to further enhance the mine countermeasures capability for both DDG 51 Arleigh Burke Class destroyers and the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS). The first RMMV was delivered to the Navy in April. The Remote Multi-Mission Vehicle (RMMV) is a semi-submersible, semi-autonomous, unmanned vehicle that tows a variable-depth sensor to detect, localise, classify and identify undersea threats at a safe distance from friendly ships.   The RMMV is the integral mobile subsystem of the Navy's AN/WLD-1 Remote Minehunting System (RMS), which includes the RMMV, a launch and...

B&G Wireless Remote Vision

Brookes & Gatehouse (B&G) have launched their wireless B&G Remote Vision. RemoteVision is smaller than a palm PC and features a full LCD graphical screen and simple 4-button control. It utilises wireless technology to instantly send and receive signals from B&G's h2000 Hercules and Hydra pilots and instruments. All readings from the instruments can be viewed on the RemoteVision anywhere on a vessel. In addition to receiving all possible data, RemoteVision can be used to change parameters and data viewed on the instruments at the helm and other positions. This approach allows experienced skippers to be sure that crew are... (read more)

Remote Display Software for Easytrak

Software enhancements to Applied Acoustics' Easytrak subsea tracking system are launched during UI 2008 in New Orleans. The package complements the software already in the main console by providing an additional display on an external PC via Ethernet.   The intuitive software allows the user to resize or rescale the vessel graphic, utilise a measurement tool and customise the workspace. The USBL tracking system, Easytrak, is manufactured in the UK by Applied Acoustic Engineering and sold in the US by Subsea Technologies of Houston.     (read more)
