ODIM Brooke Ocean has received an order to deliver an ODIM MVP30 to the Ocean Mapping Group at the University of New Brunswick.
The University of New Brunswick, Department of Geodesy and Geomatics Engineering, Ocean Mapping Group (www.omg.unb.ca/omg) has placed an order for an ODIM MVP30 system. The requirements are for the supply and delivery of an underway sound speed and CTD profiling system. The Ocean Mapping Group will utilize the ODIM MVP to assist in their research project entitled "Chirped, Broad-band, Stabilized Multibeam Sonar for Ocean Mapping Research and Arctic Operations". The project is funded under the Canadian Foundation for Innovation (www.innovation.ca).
The ODIM MVP30 is a lightweight electrical winch used for the collection of real-time and continuous sound speed profile information for ocean mapping purposes. The ODIM MVP is a self-contained, semi-autonomous device, which collects oceanographic data while the vessel is underway. The sound velocity profiler system includes a computer-controlled winch and deployment system for a variety of the free-fall sensor systems.
