DOF Subsea Selects Sonardyne Navigation Tech

International subsea services provider DOF Subsea has chosen acoustic and inertial navigation technology from Sonardyne Brasil Ltda. to support its deepwater operations from three vessels offshore Brazil.The three vessels will be equipped with Sonardyne’s SPRINT-Nav all-in-one subsea navigation instrument for underwater vehicles. A remote operated vehicle (ROV) on one of the vessels will also be fitted with a Sonardyne Syrinx Doppler Velocity Log (DVL), in place of its existing system. All three vessels are on long-term contract in Brazilian Waters.SPRINT-Nav combines Sonardyne’s SPRINT

Hydroid's Most Compact AUV Ever Produced

beyond mine-countermeasure (MCM) activities where REMUS AUVs are already in use. The A-size form factor also means the REMUS M3V can be launched from the air, on the surface and even submerged below the sea. That makes it useful for applications such as oil spill response. Compact and accurate navigation technology To maintain the A-size form factor, Hydroid needed to use navigation technology that was as compact as possible, while also maintaining the levels of quality and accuracy expected of its products. This entailed miniaturization and the most compact arrangement possible of components within

Tuco Marine Launches Aquaculture Service Boat

hull design is highly efficient and provides for a stable ride, even in rough seas where most vessels must surrender, he builder said. The cockpit is furnished with a comfortable interior and the layout is arranged to fully exploit the latest monitoring systems and the most reliable and accurate navigation technology available. Large windshields afford plenty of light and great visibility.   The 15m ProZero HPC boat is built from composite materials, reducing the structural weight of the vessel and helping to ensure durability and low maintenance.   Thanks to the low weight and the twin
