EIVA Launches ROV Steering Software

professional use – provided you have the right software capabilities.This is now possible through a NaviSuite product dedicated to ROV steering, NaviSuite Mobula. It includes high-end features from NaviSuite Nardoa, EIVA’s package for high-end subsea inspection work, where focus is on data fusion from the most advanced sensors and on efficiency functions that enable fast inspection of very large assets such as pipelines etc. By bringing this into a package for the mini-ROV segment, it becomes possible to use these for professional inspections.EIVA CEO Jeppe Nielsen commented, "With NaviSuite

, the new bathymetric map describes a system of gullies and minor channels – among which are the TMFs of Kveithola and Bear Island – that cut the continental slope and end up running into the main channel. According to the study, the action of density currents and turbidity currents created by fusion ice water are factors that shaped and kept these erosive structures.In this geological context, “and particularly the period of maximum expansion of the ice cape in the area during the LGM, the material brought by ice currents powered the formation of TMFs,” Casamor said.The change in
