Mapping the Future

is as important as any other and all had some innovation built in – and it is this cohesive approach to producing information from the bathymetric data collected that allowed our team to be as successful as we have been so far. Each piece is an important part of the puzzle – with the final products, whether images of the sea-floor or bathymetric charts showing the morphology and character of the seafloor, being the main objective of the team’s entry. USV Maxlimer has been successful as she offers the means to deploy, retrieve and manage AUV operations flexibly, in either remote or

Fast-track products will be available in the fourth quarter of 2018 and final products will be available in the second quarter of 2019.   Constellation is a 44,000 km2 project that upgrades CGG’s existing Cluster and Cluster Extension surveys with its latest subsurface imaging technology, including 3D deghosting with bandwidth extension and TTI FWI velocity model

products that are guaranteed fit for purpose. This is why this guideline is so important to all industry stakeholders.”   With the new guideline, DNV GL has created a clear pathway for AM certification and has the processes in place to assess every parameter that will impact upon the final products – from the material used, to a technology assessment, manufacturing procedure qualification, data transfer, and the actual printing and post processing

Seamless Hydrographic Workflow: Processing Evolved

workflows to deliver detailed and accurate information in an efficient manner. Issues arise due the incorporation of a variety of software solutions within a single non-seamless (acquisition through deliverable) workflow. This often results in an accumulation of human error which leads to inaccurate final products and/or poor decisions with undesirable consequences (Beaudoin, 2017). Advancements in the hydrographic workflow by researchers and engineers at Quality Positioning Systems (QPS) have automated the mundane, human-error prone tasks and guide users through the hydrographic workflow. This workflow

CGG Starts Santos Basin Survey for Next Pre-salt Licensing

in two phases between September 2016 and June 2017 and processed in CGG's Rio de Janeiro Subsurface Imaging center to provide state-of-the-art broadband images of Saturno using full-waveform inversion (FWI) technology. Fast-track products for the first phase will be available in spring 2017 and final products for both phases will be available in summer 2018.    The two other components of the Santos Basin Trilogy project are Galaxy and Constellation. Galaxy is a 3D migrated grid covering approximately 34,000 km2 extracted from CGG’s legacy Cluster and Cluster Extension surveys that

Hypack Training Seminar By Pat Sanders at Unique System FZE's Training Centre in Sharjah, UAE

Unique System & HYPACK's Hydrographic Course in UAE

courses were held from the 16th to the 27th of November 2014. HYPACK is one of the most widely used hydrographic surveying packages in the world, with more than 4,000 users. It provides the Surveyor with all the tools needed to design their survey, collect data, process it, reduce it, and generate final products. The first week of the survey training was kick started with an introduction to the hydrographic, geophysical and oceanographic survey industry by our highly competent engineering team. A wide range of geophysical, environmental and oceanographic survey systems were discussed along with some

, Inc.(formerly Coastal Oceanographics, Inc.) has evolved from a small hydrographic consultant to a successful provider of hydrographic and navigation software worldwide. HYPACK provides the Surveyor with all the tools needed to design their survey, collect data, process it, reduce it, and generate final products. Whether the user is collecting hydrographic survey data or environmental data, or just positioning your vessel in an engineering project, HYPACK provides the tools needed to complete your job. With users spanning the range from small vessel with just a GPS and single beam echosounder to large

calibrations and the integration of a number of sensors used in the area to monitor these rivers. For this purpose, we are installing DREDGEPACK in the hopper dredges of both countries. HYPACK is also installed in their survey vessels and in their hydrographic offices to process the data and generate final products that will be made available to all users. HYPACK, Inc. will not only provide the licenses and sensors for the dredges, but it will oversee installations in the vessels and provide training to operators and surveyors.
