Marport completes successful in-water tests of SQX-UUVThe Managing Director and Operations Manager of Geodetic Offshore Services Limited (GOSL), Nigeria visited Marport's St. John's office from March 15 to 17. The purpose of their visit was to demonstrate progress on the development of Marport's SQX Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) program.

Last year, GOSL purchased a SQX-500 UUV, to be upgraded to a 3,000 meter depth rated SQX-3000 UUV, both equipped with a number of Marport sensors.

In-water tests of the vehicle were successfully completed in the large testing tanks of the NRC Institute for Ocean Technology and the Marine Institute Flume Tank. As a result of these successful tests, GOSL has decided to execute its option to procure a second SQX class vehicle.
