Large companies dominate the survey industry and all these companies have their own procedures and methods. Some surveyors try to do it differently – they are independent and work for a broad spectrum of clients. This way, their ideas and working methods are spread over the hydrographic community. Tim Haycock is such an independent consultant in field construction and development, pipeline inspection surveys and offshore seismic exploration. Hydrointernationalasks Tim about his life as an independent surveyor.<P> Can you briefly explain yourposition in the hydrographic world, your experience and present role?

Nuclear Surveyor-100 Camera

Bowtech Products hase released the Surveyor-100 colour zoom camera. This camera is ideally suited to Nuclear applications, although with its 100 metre rating it also makes for a shallow water viewing solution. In an irradiated environment the Surveyor-100 with its 36:1 optical zoom allows the camera to be located further away from the subject being viewed, compared to traditional cameras. This reduces the effects of radiation, resulting in an increased camera life.   An electro-polished stainless steel housing with a Spectrocil non browning fused silica window further enhances the longevity.   One of the features of this camera is the...
