Silicon Sensing Unveils New MEMS IMU

the AMU30 is designed to respond to growing demand for a tactical grade, non-ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) IMU that also outputs pitch, roll and heading data. The AMU30 is a micro electro-mechanical system (MEMS) product offering a real alternative to heavier, larger and more costly fibre optic gyro-based devices. It delivers all-MEMS inertial performance, including bias stability and low noise characteristics, while having the benefit of an embedded Kalman Filter based AHRS algorithm.AMU30 comprises a 10 degree-of-freedom IMU with a three-axis magnetometer, pressure sensor and a sophisticate

melts and, importantly, warn about impending tsunamis that could devastate coastal communities.They said it would also help the so-called "blue economy" as countries and companies seek to protect or exploit deep-sea resources - from exploring for oil and gas to installing wind farms or laying fibre-optic cables for the internet.That is predicted to become more important in the coming years, according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). It expects the ocean economy to contribute $3 trillion to the world economy by 2030, up from $1.5 trillion in 2010.POLITICAL

Google to Tap the Power of Offshore Wind

.While the Nordics are still perceived as less connected than these markets, the region is likely to gain market share, the Council of Ministers' study said.This is partly due to the region's plentiful renewable energy and political stability while the planned installation of major fibre optic links to North America and Asia will improve connectivity.Google said it is also evaluating investments in a number of onshore and offshore wind and solar energy projects in Denmark.In September, Google signed a 10-year deal to buy renewable energy from three new wind farms being built in Finland

MacArtney: Custom EMO Multiplexer

.    Custom ROV MUX System A custom version of MacArtney’s EMO DOMINO-7 fiber optic multiplexer system (MUX) was built for instal- lation on an ROV in Singapore with the aim of upgrading the subsea survey and camera interfaces of the ROV.   The DOMINO-7 MUX is a compact fibre optic system with a wide range of MUX channel and power supply configurations. Offering 3 videos with 10 bit data channels, the DOMINO design also offers 2 x industry standard multibeam ports, consisting of gigabit Ethernet (GBE) communications, coupled with 48 VDC supply voltage, all provided within

GMG Secures Cable Contract for Rampion Offshore Wind Farm

Global Marine Group (GMG) announced that it has been awarded a contract from E.ON to install a fibre optic cable at the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm, under construction 13km off the coast of Sussex, UK.   Upon completion the cable will run from the shore to an offshore substation, providing a vital communications link for this major wind farm. The installation is expected to be completed later this month.   CWind, which is part of the GMG and is responsible for delivering the Company’s power capabilities, will execute the contract and will utilize the Group’s capable assets
