. It is also extremely power-efficient which makes it suited for battery-powered applications to collect data without running a cable. Moreover, it is sensitive enough to not requiring direct line of sight to communicate in murky waters.”LUMA X comes in a titanium housing with serial and ethernet connectors and will be pressure-rated to 6,000 meter depth. It has patent-pending technology to work in various lighting conditions and turbidity

Seamor Marine Debuts New ROV with 3km Capacity

fiber optics tether with its Chinook ROV. Able to dive to 600 meters (2,000 feet), the Chinook ROV is equipped with a sensor skid carrying two Imagenex sonars: the 965A digital multi-beam imaging sonar and the DT360 multi-beam profiling sonar. These sonars are operated simultaneously using an Ethernet switch to the fiber optic tether multiplexer, allowing the EISA team to navigate and inspect tunnel walls in almost zero-visibility conditions. Auto depth and auto heading functions help them safely navigate the tunnel.One of SEAMOR’s partners in Finland consulted with the EISA team onsite

SBG Systems' INS Chosen for Shom Fleet

support. “We have selected SBG for the good performance/price ratio and the high level of service. The SBG technical support team is available, reactive, and committed,” adds the Shom professional. Another key factor when choosing the INS solution was the ease of use. Once connected through Ethernet, the Navsight inner web interface guides the user during the installation phase. For example, a 3D view of the boat shows the entered parameters so that the user can check the installation in real-time. The embedded filter also controls and validates lever arms and antenna alignment during this
