of hydrocarbon based substances, and can be set up to ignore other materials that fluoresce in the same wavelength.   Real time data from these monitoring systems can be transmitted from the buoys via GSM, UHF radio and satellite to a base station and can be integrated into the clients own computer systems, providing users with a variety of alarm options including email and text alerts, audible alarms or visual indicators such as flashing lights. The systems can also be equipped with additional water quality or MetOcean sensors depending on customer requirements.    The systems are

BOEM's Jim Bennett Weighs in on US Offshore Renewables

Outer Continental Shelf programs, including oil and gas, sand and gravel and renewable energy.   He is a graduate of the Departmental Manager Development Program and has earned two Master’s degrees – one in Environmental Planning from the University of Virginia and the other in Computer Systems Management from the University of Maryland.     (As published in the May 2017 edition of Marine Technology Reporter

When it comes to the surface, it raises a mast and turns on a diesel generator, charging the lithium ion and silver zinc batteries that power the system while submerged. On the surface, it can communicate via satellite to offload data and download a new operational plan. Even at 50 tons, one operator can control multiple vehicles from anywhere in the world.

Echo Voyager: New Frontiers in Unmanned Technology

we know things will fail. This is why we added several redundant systems which helps drive the vehicles size, but also so that you can lose a significant proportion of the systems and the vehicle will still come back. There are also six emergency backup systems: you can lose four primary computer systems and six emergency controllers and the last one will get the vehicle to the surface.”   Over the summer, the Echo Voyager is scheduled for further testing and validation in Huntington Beach, California, when the vehicle will be placed in a large research pool. Once it is operating

USV Powered by Renewable Energy

Vessel (USV) and announced that it will begin work related to the construction of a prototype. The Aquarius USV is being developed as a cost-effective unmanned surface vessel (USV) and will incorporate a number of technologies from EMP and its strategic partners. These technologies include marine computer systems and lightweight flexible marine solar panels. The Aquarius USV will be powered by a solar-electric hybrid marine power solution which will also feature a solar panel array designed by EMP. Onboard batteries will be recharged via the solar-panel array or via ship or shore power using rapid
