ODIM Brooke Ocean has received an order to deliver an ODIM MVP30 to the Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS), Central & Arctic Region.
The Canadian Hydrographic Service has placed an order for an ODIM MVP30 system. The requirements were for the supply and delivery of a real-time underway sound speed and CTD profiling system. The Central and Arctic Region, Burlington, Ontario, will utilize the ODIM MVP to assist in the collection of multibeam echosounder data to produce authoritative nautical charts and publications which support a broad range of marine activities. The new ODIM MVP30 is the latest of several ODIM MVP models presently used by the CHS to help reduce the Total Propagated Uncertainty of a sounding as per the IHO S-44 Specifications for hydrographic surveys.
The ODIM MVP30 is a light weight 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 free-fall sensor systems.
