Forum Energy Technologies, Inc. (Forum) is pleased to announce the entry into an agreement with DOF Subsea AS (DOF Subsea) to provide a VisualSoft Digital Video and Pipeline Data Processing Suite for installation on their new multipurpose construction and anchor handling vessel, Skandi Skansen.
Nortek partners with ORPC and UNH to explore forward looking acoustic Doppler pProfilers for tidal turbine optimization and control.
The new multi-purpose research vessel R/V Ramon Margalef, which belongs to the Spanish Oceanographic Institute (IEO), was undergoing sea trials when the Science Ministry decided to move it to the Canary Islands to follow up on the activity of the volcano on El Hierro Island. The vessel was only delivered a few weeks previously, on 23 of September 2011, so with such a challenging first mission, this really was a trial by fire.
The UKHO today announced the sale of SevenCs and ChartWorld to Dutch-Belgian-Trading GmbH (DBT).
Kongsberg Mesotech unveiled today the latest release of MS 1000 software for MS 1071 and MS 1171 Digital Scanning Sonar. This version provides stunning high-resolution underwater records when combined with Kongsberg MS 1171 Profiling Sonar and precision rotators.
The Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) has launched the latest of its interactive maps that allow users to explore changes to sea level as observed by tide gauges. The anomalies map demonstrates how sea level varies from year to year when compared the long-term average at that site, calculated over the period from 1960 to 1990. Moving the slider along the time line shows how sea level can vary by over 20 cm from year to year at some locations.
Sonardyne International has put into operational deployment its first Pressure Inverted Echo Sounder (PIES) off the coast of Hawaii. This new long life sensor logging node is designed to accurately measure the average sound velocity through a column of water from the seabed to the sea surface. The information gathered will help oceanographers to better understand the dynamics of the ocean and atmosphere-ocean coupling.
SeeByte, the global leader in creating smart software technology for unmanned systems, is pleased to announce its compatibility with CDL Inertial Engineering of Aberdeen. SeeByte's SeeTrack CoPilot system and CDL's TOGS/NAV system are now fully compatible. This combination has created a truly efficient navigation platform, capable of delivering Dynamic Positioning (DP) for work-class Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) in challenging subsea environments.
Scientists and Engineers from across Europe gathered last week at the Sheraton Skyline Hotel, London Heathrow, for two days of presentations on the Use of acoustic Doppler measurement technology in the field of offshore renewable Energy.
