MTS Welcomes Two New Board Members

United States’ first National Ocean Policy.He has published widely in the peer-reviewed literature and made significant contributions to several major federal policy documents. His work has been recognized with awards both in the U.S. and abroad, including for the development of salinity remote sensing technology.Kohut graduated cum laude in 1997 with a B.S. in physics from the College of Charleston and earned his Ph.D. in physical oceanography from Rutgers University in 2002. Kohut was an early adopter of HF Radar and underwater glider technologies and has remained at the forefront of their development

Oil Spill Detection: Remote Sensing Equipment Tested

of a spill incident,” said Robert Limb, Chief Executive for OSRL. “Through the course of this exercise we were able to monitor, evaluate and mitigate the oil – giving us, our members and the general public total confidence in our systems and approach.”   The remote sensing technology used was able to identify and monitor the controlled spill, and OSRL said it was satisfied by the performance of the various new technologies involved. In addition, OSRL said the response equipment and personnel operated in an efficient and effective manner providing validation of its approach

Researchers to Visit ‘Battle of the Atlantic’ Wreckage

recreate an underwater battlefield that has remained undisturbed for 74 years. Project Baseline, a global conservation non-profit, is supplying the GlobalSubDive assets including the research vessel Baseline Explorer, and two manned submersibles.   Underwater robots and advanced remote sensing technology, provided by 2G Robotics and SRI International, will generate bathymetric data and detailed acoustical models of the wrecks and surrounding seafloor. University of North Carolina's Coastal Studies Institute will provide three-dimensional modeling of the wrecks   “This discovery

Newfoundland and Labrador: Sensing Success

Newfoundland and Labrador companies push forward on remote sensing tech   Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) is home to a number of companies at the cutting edge of remote sensing technology. From mature, established organizations to specialty start-ups, the province is increasingly excelling in this high technology category. Rutter Inc. has spent more than 20 years developing a proprietary suite of radar technologies including its Sigma S6 system, which has helped it lay claim as the largest supplier of ice radar systems in the world. Its technology is largely used in the global oil and gas

Experts on Ice

centers of excellence: LOOKNorth and CARD. LOOKNorth (Leading Operational Observations and Knowledge for the North) is Canada’s only Center of Excellence for commercialization and research dedicated to remote sensing innovation in support of northern resource development. The center uses remote sensing technology and extremely capable satellite radar technology to monitor northern environments and infrastructure to see where ice is moving and predict where it will move to.  CARD (Center for Arctic Resource Development) is also unique in Canada as it is the only independent, industry-guided

The Path to the Arctic

independent, industry-guided research and development initiative in Canada dedicated to responsible, cost-effective hydrocarbon development in Arctic regions. The second, LOOKNorth (Leading Operational Observations and Knowledge for the North) is a national center of excellence with a focus on remote sensing technology in support of northern resource development, and assists technology companies across Canada - especially in Newfoundland and Labrador - in demonstrating the utility of their creations.    Also located on the campus of Memorial University is the Ocean, Coastal and River

Sonardyne System to Monitor North Sea CO2 Leaks

Environment Research Council (NERC – as represented by the National Oceanography Centre and British Geological Society), Plymouth Marine Laboratory and the University of Southampton. Using technologies already proven in the offshore and oceanographic industries, combined with new remote sensing technology, the consortium will develop an integrated leak detection system that is capable of both wide area coverage by AUVs/ASVs (Autonomous Underwater Vehicles/Autonomous Surface vehicles) and continuous automated monitoring of high risk areas. For these sites, the use of Sonardyne’s Automatic
