Sensor Suites and Our Engineering Challenge

11/2016

Whether it is an ASV, AUV, ROV or indeed a sea mammal such as a seal or dolphin, all instrumented vehicle types need various sensors to meet and maintain design criteria or operational demands. The challenge for us as manufacturers is to match those demands with sensor designs and packages that meet varying specifications of size, weight, material, depth, power constraints and budgets without making each requirement a “one off” (as there are of course additional cost and time implications associated with a ‘one off’).

Unmanned Science Yields Pioneering Ocean Discoveries

11/2016

Unmanned vehicle technology, once considered a scientific experiment itself, is now a reliable tool for researchers to conduct scientific experiments and gain knowledge in ways that were previously unavailable. The outcome is often faster and more efficient data collection, saving operators both time and money. Confidence inand adoption of the technology in many markets including defense, security, aquaculture, offshore energy, hydrography, and oceanographic research, continue to increase as the technology matures.

Survey Solutions For Challenging Waters: Combining High-Resolution Multibeam Sonar with an ASV

07/2016

A submerged dock lays off the Fort McHenry National Monument, in the Patapsco River, Baltimore MD—and a well-known marked hazard zone. The depth surrounding the object is navigable at depths greater than 30 feet. Just over the hazard, depths are only 5-8 feet, making it impossible for a traditional survey vessel to navigate. We chose this particular location to demonstrate how an ultra-high resolution multibeam sonar can be used in conjunction with a small autonomous surface vehicle (ASV) to obtain a more complete survey of a complex and challenging area.

Marketing and Communication Manager, SBG SYSTEMS

07/2016

Technology is moving fast with always the “more accurate, cheaper, smaller” dictate. Three years ago, SBG Systems has been able to integrate all those wishes into a single unit: the Ekinox Inertial Navigation System (INS). In 2015, SBG Systems took another step forward with the release of the Apogee, the most accurate inertial navigation system based on the robust and cost-effective MEMS technology. Without export restriction, the Apogee stands as a game changer on the hydrographic market. It provides an unmatched Performance-Price-Size ratio and sets up new standard in the industry. Let’s see how MEMS-based inertial sensors can be used in some of the latest technical solutions dedicated to hydrographic surveyors.

Leveraging Near Real-Time Data Processing to Safely Increase Hydrographic Production

07/2016

The Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS) and Teledyne CARIS™ conducted two important sea trials in July and December of 2015. The July trial was to test the capabilities of CARIS Onboard™ for near real-time processing, while the December trial was focused on remote access to the products created through a remote survey operation.

NOAA Ship Thomas Jefferson Deploys Innovative “Z-Boat” Unmanned Survey Vessel

11/2015

If you look closely at any U.S. coastal nautical chart, you’ll likely find that the areas closest to the shore, shoals, and rocks do not have updated depth measurements. In many areas, safety concerns prohibit the use of NOAA ships or launches to survey shallow depths. In many areas, the water is too murky to be mapped with the airborne lidar systems used in clear waters. Now, however, charting those shallow areas is about to get safer, thanks to recent purchases of small, commercial off-the-shelf, unmanned survey vessels.

From Surface to Seafloor, Teledyne Delivers Subsea Vehicles with Proven Performance for Diverse Market Applications

11/2015

Autonomous, tethered, and towed vehicles are doing important work in defense and security, oceanographic research, offshore and onshore energy, and water resource markets. In fact, unmanned underwater vehicles have become an essential tool for a variety of tasks across all these markets, which is a testament to the evolution of robotics technology. Underwater unmanned vehicles are doing work that is impossible, expensive, or clearly too dangerous to humans.
