​Water Drone Christened in the Port of Hamburg

at a time in the harbor to improve the understanding of the water depths and provide information about the condition of the quay walls. With its length of only 1.65 meters, the drone can also explore areas that were previously difficult to reach.There is no captain on board, but sonar, cameras and satellite signals navigate the USV. The course of the USV is monitored on land using a monitor, said Meier. "We are testing autonomous driving on the water here in real operation. To do this, we want to get the port customers used to the fact that such vehicles are in the port here between the normal ships

New GPS Interference Mitigation Solution

offshore oil and gas environment that can cause major delays in projects and impact vessel, operational and crew safety.The new antenna from VERIPOS, part of Hexagon’s Positioning Intelligence division, works to nullify the interference or jamming source that’s trying to overpower the satellite signals that GPS positioning systems use to determine location. With the source nullified, the receiver can acquire and track GPS signals while maintaining high-accuracy positioning.The technology that the VERIPOS GAJT 710-MS uses has been battle-tested and proven to work in some of the most demanding

New Rescue Vessel Decked out with High-tech Equipment

water multi-beam echo sounder optimal for any high-resolution mapping and inspection application. The scope also includes an inertial sensor, Kongsberg Seapath 300, developed specifically for hydrographic and other high-precision applications. Seapath 300 combines inertial technology with GPS satellite signals. Sirius is also equipped with sound velocity sensors Valeport Midas SVX2 for profiling and Valeport miniSVS for surface measurement. Both sensors include digital time of flight sound velocity, and the SVX2 also acquires CTD profiling.   The scope also includes a QPS QINSy hydrographic
