Subsea Tech's 'March of Miniaturization'
to remote control ROVs or mobile underwater platforms, so they don’t have to stay within range of a communications hub.It’s now working on a system with a 50km single range with semi and fully automated missions. A challenge is data transfer – when away from the host vessel or communications networks, less data can be sent, so the drone’s communications systems have to be able to reduce the amount of telemetry, but still have the bandwidth to receive new missions, without direct control.The firm aims to start testing its home-grown drone in about a year and take it to market in
Anti-Submarine Warfare: Unmanned Future
(1) Maritime Unmanned Systems for ASW where we engage in spiral S&T development of an autonomous ASW network based on unmanned underwater vehicles. We deploy these yearly into National and NATO ASW exercises; (2) the UWNet project, where we develop technology for military digital underwater communications networks, which is actually a critical enabling capability across all the maritime warfare domains; and (3) the Decision Support project. This final project is where we engage in ASW operations research and analysis to develop candidate tactics and decision support tools for both human operators
UDT 2013 to Highlight Subsea Innovation
video inspections. AEROMARITIME Systembau will also introduce new technologies at UDT 2013. APCOS 4000 represents the company’s latest innovation in advanced platform communication systems. The product satisfies the contemporary requirements placed upon tactical and strategic communications networks and is designed to meet future demands through a hybrid routing and switching communications platform. UDT Event Director, Anna Campagnoli said, “A major factor behind UDT’s continued success is its unique ability to anticipate, recognise and react to technological evolutions
Ready for Launch: MTN Nexus Targets high-volume Cruise Market
The idea of simply adding more satellite capacity to a ship is not the solution. MTN saw this many years ago, so when I joined the company, we were in position to launch a hybrid network vision to address the satellite capacity costs as well as the performance constraints of today’s at-sea communications networks. A key component to MTN Nexus will be terrestrial network capabilities that enable passengers and crew to switch from satellite to Wi-Fi connectivity to increase efficiencies and improve the customer experience for users of handheld, wireless devices onboard ships. That is just the first
