10 Tech Trends to Impact Shipping Industry
to properly identify, understand and manage emerging digital risks.Under-performing sensors, communication and algorithms, unintentionally (cyber safety) or deliberately manipulated (cyber security), are the principal sources of the new risks. In addition, there is the increasing complexity of software systems, multiplied in uncertainty by machine learning and AI-based systems.The digital transformation also opens new trust gaps in industries like food, health and manufacturing, in which a previously entirely physical-based business is augmented and eventually replaced by a digital business.

Moore Foundation Awards $3 Mln to WHOI
Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. “Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is known for its high-quality ocean research and instrumentation, and there is an opportunity now to bring this attention to quality and precision to a new way of rapidly and efficiently developing distributed hardware/software systems for studying the world’s oceans.
GeoSphere: Mapping-while-drilling Evolution
Logging-while-drilling (LWD) technologies have evolved significantly in the past decade. Today they integrate sophisticated algorithms that take advantage of the ever-increasing technical complexity combining mechanical, electrica, and software systems that are implemented downhole. These achievements helps the users gain a better understanding of the reservoir while bring drilling into a new area of efficiency and cost savings. Marine Technology Reporter’s Correspondent in Brazil spoke to Jean Seydoux, Program Manager for Advanced Reservoir Mapping Technologies for Drilling and Measurement at
DNV GL'S Synergi Water Models Open Channel Flow
from collection systems to treatment plants. Planners and engineers need to model these systems along with their closed pipe networks in order to optimize the design and operations. Until now, some users have refrained from modelling open channels while others have used models in two separate software systems to model the water flow in both closed pipe networks and in open channels. This can be a cumbersome and time-consuming process. With the new release of DNV GL’s Synergi Water, closed pipe networks and open channel flow in steady state can be modelled directly within the same software. &ldquo
Seafloor Systems Inc.
, and tide gauges. It has sensors from many manufacturers such as Applanix, Coda Optopus, Teledyne Marine, Trimble, Valeport, and Ohmex. It also offers a Reson 8160 50-kHz multibeam echosounder, capable of mapping the seafloor down to 3,000 meters. For data acquisition and processing, it offers software systems from Triton Imaging, Hypack, Chesapeake Technology, and Caris. Its data processors can process data from multibeam echosounders, side scan sonars, magnetometers, and subbottom profilers acquired in most common formats such as XTF, Q-MIPS, .ALL, .HSX, SEG-Y and many more.

Werum Equips Research Vessel with DSHIP Software
The new RV Mya II, which has only recently been delivered to the German Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Center for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), has been equipped by Werum Software & Systems AG with their DSHIP data and information management system. The data management system will acquire the measurement data collected during the research cruises of RV Mya II. It will also archive and centrally provide the measurement data on shore at the AWI. Being stationed on the German island of Sylt, RV Mya II will go on one-day research cruises on the Wadden Sea and on the North Sea up to Helgoland.
EvoLogics Modems Connect AUV Fleet
the USVs and ROF (Range Only Formation) maneuvers of the AUVs. To demonstrate the system’s efficiency, the experiments were performed with different sets of marine vehicles from different MORPH partners - six vehicles overall. The team reached all objectives, having integrated all hardware and software systems required for mission planning and control, as well as all aerial and acoustic communications. One of the MORPH partners, Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), implemented the underwater networking solution for data exchange and positioning of underwater vehicles using EvoLogics
SeeByte’s SeeTrack Military Now Compatible
SeeByte, a leader in creating smart software for unmanned maritime systems, has announced the compatibility of its SeeTrack Military software systems with the Marine Sonic Technology, Ltd. high resolution Sea Scan HDS side-scan sonar system. Ioseba Tena, Sales Manager at SeeByte commented; “Having successfully worked together with Marine Sonic Technology in the past, it seems only natural that both companies’ customers gain from the collaborative efforts of this work. Customers using the Marine Sonic Sea Scan HDS sonar can now visualise and process data from their newest side-scan
