Teledyne CARIS to Display AI Sonar Noise Cleaning Platform at OI

Teledyne CARIS, a Teledyne Technologies company, will demonstrate its newly released artificial intelligence (AI) tool at Oceanology International 2020 in London, UK, March 17-19. Experts at the company's booth (H500) will discuss the industry’s first COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) AI solution for cleaning sonar noise.Leveraging deep learning techniques, the new solution will bring fundamental change to how sonar data is processed. Powered by the CARIS Mira AI platform, the tool is available with CARIS’ HIPS & SIPSTM 11.3 software.At Oceanology International , there will be

PGS, Cognite Partner on Seismic Surveying

Marine geophysical firm PGS and artificial intelligence (AI) software-as-a-service (SaaS) company Cognite are teaming up in an effort to make seismic survey vessels work better, faster and more efficiently.Venturing into a new area of the energy sector, Cognite has launched a digitalization project with Norway’s PGS, a leader in subsurface seismic imaging, to optimize its fleet’s performance, energy consumption and maintenance. PGS provides seismic images and 3D data describing the subsurface beneath the ocean floor, which oil companies rely on to find oil and gas reserves worldwide.

Shell, i-Tech 7 Team Up to Speed Up Subsea Digitalization

agreement aimed at speed up subsea digitalization, initially for a period of five years from the fourth quarter of 2019.The agreement, i-Tech said Tuesday, will help fast-track innovation and streamline the adoption of applied technologies in areas such as marine robotics, advanced sensing, artificial intelligence and autonomous systems to address the industry’s challenges to improve safety, cost-efficiency and sustainability.Steve Wisely, Senior Vice President for i-Tech 7, said the partnership would help accelerate the development and deployment of digital asset integrity management services

New AI Tool for Sonar Noise Cleanup

Teledyne CARIS has announced the released of HIPS and SIPSTM 11.3. This new software upgrade will introduce the first-ever COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) release of an artificial intelligence (AI) solution for classifying and cleaning sonar noise.Teledyne CARIS said it seeks to reduce the need for manual cleaning and to move data swiftly from acquisition to review. The Sonar Noise Classifier automatically identifies the vast majority of sonar noise, resulting in a reduction of manual cleaning effort by a factor of up to 10x at an accuracy of 95%. This allows the hydrographer to focus more time on

Autonomous Trash Collector Deployed on the River Scheldt

in cooperation with the University of Antwerp and the Institute for Nature and Forestry Management (Instituut voor Natuur- en Bosbeheer).The mobile installation consists of a smart detection system, a workboat that can navigate autonomously and a charging point. Floating waste is detected using artificial intelligence (AI) by smart cameras that are installed on the old Temse bridge. An autonomously navigating workboat, the Marine Litter Hunter, intercepts waste and pushes it to a collection pontoon. The waste is collected in the collection pontoon, where a crane equipped with a grab transfers the waste
