Z-boat 1800-RP to Survey in Remote Locations for University of Washington Tacoma

Teledyne Oceanscience has shipped a custom Z-Boat 1800-RP to the University of Washington Tacoma. Dr Dan Shugar, assistant professor of geoscience at the University of Washington Tacoma, will be heading to two remote locations in Alaska and Canada this summer with the new Z-boat. The custom integration for the University of Washington Tacoma included the rugged Z-Boat 1800RP, Teledyne Odom Hydrographic MB2 Multibeam, Teledyne RD Instruments RiverPro ADCP, a camera, IMU and onboard computer. Dr Shugar will be heading in early August to Taan Fiord, an arm of Icy Bay in the rugged St Elias Mountains of southeast Alaska, to... (read more)

Advances in High-speed Underwater Remote Vehicles for Subsea Pipeline Inspection

The Benefits and Challenges of the Technological Revolution in the Pipeline Survey Industry
The pipeline survey industry has undergone a technological revolution in the past couple of years, and the consequential benefits and challenges are only just beginning to be fully realized. The cost efficiency of subsea operations has been one of the key focus areas of the offshore energy industry in recent years. This focus, combined with increased growth in the amount of subsea infrastructure now in-situ on the seafloor, has seen a rising need for innovative approaches to subsea asset inspection. These solutions need to be cost-efficient, maintain data quality, and be able to provide a platform that supports future technologies.... (read more)

Dr. Gary Borstad Receives Val Shaw Memorial Award

ASL's Dr. Gary Borstad recently received the Val Shaw Memorial Award in recognition of his career-long contribution and lifetime achievements in practical remote sensing applied to natural resource management. This award was presented at the 40th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing in Fredericton, New Brunswick on June 25th, 2019. The Val Shaw Award was established in 1990 in memory of Val Shaw, an executive with the Bercha Group and a strong proponent of remote sensing in Canada. Remote Sensing Gary was educated at the Universities of Alberta, Paris, and McGill and has been active in remote sensing since 1975. With... (read more)

Remote Sensing Ð this month's theme - has different definitions. In this issue are articles that describe both active and passive systems in which the sensor and the object are separated by air and/or space. Coming issues with themes such as 'Magnetometry and Gradiometry' and 'Underwater Imaging' will also devote attention to remote sensing techniques. My first practical experience with the capabilities of remote sensing was back in the 1960s, taking part in a military oceanographic expedition near the Azores. We were being overflown at regular intervals by a participating aircraft measuring, among other things, sea-surface temperature. This was needed... (read more)

Certification - a Sales Driver?

In my editorial in the March issue of Hydro International, I mentioned the inconsistency in certification of ship equipment in particular for ECDIS, where both the hardware and software have to conform to specifications and be certified/approved, and the charts have to be ‘official’ (i.e. ENCs), whereas the ‘shore-based’ supply chain of digital hydrographic data receives less attention, for example, the license administration of a chart supplier and the computer system of a chart agent. Regarding this shore-based aspect, luckily more and more HOs have ISO certification for their production chain, from data collection to the end-product. While preparing for... (read more)

FIG, IHO and ISPRS Support Young Geo-Professional Magazine

The International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), the International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) and the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) have declared their support for the Young Geo-Professional magazine initiative by sponsoring the project. The publication, called Young Geo Professional, will position geomatics and hydrography as an attractive and fascinating field. Further, it will make the young people aware of the wide scale of fields of application and future job possibilities. Vice Admiral A. Maratos, president of the International Hydrographic Bureau (IHO office) commented: "Almost everything that happens at sea depends on some level of hydrographic information. One of... (read more)
