of Autosub2KUI by the NOC builds on the successes of previous generations of Autosub, including Autosub3, which has previously penetrated up to 60km under the ice from the ice-edge. Autosub2KUI will provide the UK science community with a next generation AUV, equipped with state-of-the art sonars and camera systems to enable scientists to create detailed maps and establish habitat characteristics of the seafloor under the ice-covered polar regions.“The missions planned for A2KUI are among the most demanding for any AUV in existence and Sonardyne’s SPRINT-Nav will be fundamental to the AUV&rsquo

was recorded to the camera itself, to be uploaded once the ROV returned to the surface. This was a game changer for those operating ROVs without the ability to transmit live HD video to the surface. SubC’s products are typically used on ROVs, AUVs, towed platforms, ocean observatories and drop camera systems. In addition to a 11,000m rated system recently delivered to Shanghai Ocean University, its latest product releases include the VisioSphere Situational Awareness system and the 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD)suite. SubC has been involved in several recent high profile international projects, including

frigates IPMS upgrade we are  able to leverage from our proven marine & naval camera technologies to support L-3 MAPPS, Irving Shipbuilding and RCN on the prestigious AOPS Program which is a key milestone in the renewal of Canada’s combatant fleet,” said David Fleming, Camera Systems Manager for Kongsberg Maritime. Forming a key part of the Integrated Platform Management System (IPMS), the CCTV system will provide the crew with real time video surveillance to assist with mission critical operations as well as providing increased safety, security and situational awareness

C-Innovation Chooses Kongsberg AUV Systems

a primary focus in engineering, project management and operation of subsea field development in the oil and gas sector. Kongsberg, a long-time ECO vendor in Norway, is a global marine technology company providing subsea solutions including echo sounders, AUV/underwater navigation, communication and camera systems.   The two HUGIN AUVs under order are depth rated to 4,500 meters, while the two MUNIN AUVs are rated to 1,500 meters. All are equipped with the latest generation sonar, echo sounders, cameras and profilers. All four are specially designed for subsea inspection, mapping and pipeline surveys

It is fantastic to see the enthusiasm from the teams and great to so see so much support from the companies involved. I have really enjoyed my time being involved in the competition and it is great for our own personnel to be involved in such a rewarding program.” The firm has also donated two camera systems to the competition which will be used as part of the infrastructure of the ROVs that are being built by the teams. The competition which this year will see 11 teams compete at the finals held at Robert Gordon University, Garthdee campus on Thursday 2 April, all in the hope of going through

; essential pieces of equipment for this type of underwater search operation. One of the first instruments to arrive on site was a side scan sonar, which was able to confirm pieces of the aircraft were scattered on the seafloor. ROVs were the next to be deployed. The remote controlled underwater camera systems can stay submerged all day and all night, without any concern of decompression, running out of air, being cold or tired, like divers must deal with. The ROV is also equipped with a scanning sonar, which is like radar for underwater use. The sonar can “see” much further than the vehicle&rsq
