In the following article Teledyne Marine Imaging introduces its Hydrographic solutions and capabilities, analyses the rapid development of Hydrography over time and highlights the key Teledyne Marine markets, supported by case stories. Finally, we will describe the future trends within hydrography.
Established in 1997, Bibby HydroMap provide a range of hydrographic, geophysical, geotechnical and ROV survey services to clients mainly from the oil and gas, offshore renewables and subsea cables industries. Their fleet of dedicated survey vessels work throughout the UK and Northern Europe, are permanently mobilised with high-specification survey equipment from industry leading suppliers.
From surface to seafloor, Valeport innovative profilers are shaping the future of surveying
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.
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.
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.
