MTR MTR 100 100The CompanyOceanServer Tecnology is the de- veloper of the Iver family of modern, low-cost Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs). These robust, man- portable systems are ideal for survey, search and rescue, scientiÞ c and mili- tary applications in near-coastal water. The low, all-inclusive price (including mission planning and post mission analysis software) has enabled many organizations to add this technology into their equipment pool and survey methodology. OceanServer Technol- ogy, Inc. is a leading provider of man- portable Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) with more than 200 AUVs deployed worldwide. The Tech The Iver AUV is designed to be an affordable, commercial vehicle used for general survey and sub-surface se- curity work, and serves as a research platform for autonomy, behavioral and sensor development studies. The CompanySBG Systems is a supplier of MEMS-based inertial motion sens-ing solutions. The company provides a wide range of inertial systems from miniature to high accuracy. Combined with cutting-edge calibration tech-niques and advanced embedded al- gorithms, SBG Systems products are ideal solutions for Aerospace, Land, and especially Marine (surface and subsea) projects such as vessel motion monitoring, ROV & AUV control, Hy- drography and Buoy positioning. The Tech SBG Systems designs, manufactures, and calibrates all its products. SBG Systems adds value to its inertial sys- tems by designing speciÞ c data fusion algorithms and calibration techniques to enhance sensorsÕ performance. SBG Systems offers Motion Ref- erence Units, Inertial Measurement Units and Inertial Navigation Systems. The new Ekinox series provides 0.05¡ Attitude, 5 cm Heave on four monitoring points, and 2 cm position (GNSS enhanced). It accepts aiding data from DVL, Dual Antenna GPS, USBL, etc. With additional NMEA protocol and Ethernet communication, Ekinox is appears as a cost-effective alternative solution to FOG technol- ogy for Marine applications. With its subsea enclosure, the Ekinox Subsea Series, released in February 2014, is operationnal up to 6,000m.OCEANSERVER TECHNOLOGY , INC.OCEANSERVER TECHNOLOGY , INC.SBG SYSTEMS SBG SYSTEMS 151 Martine Street, 151 Martine Street, Fall River, MA 02723 Fall River, MA 02723 T: 508-678-0550 T: 508-678-0550 E: E: W: W: CEO/President: Bob Anderson CEO/President: Bob Anderson Engineering Director: Jon Crowell Engineering Director: Jon Crowell Number of Employees: 14 Number of Employees: 14 3 bis chemin de la Jonchere, Rueil- 3 bis chemin de la Jonchere, Rueil- Malmaison, Hauts-de-Seine, France Malmaison, Hauts-de-Seine, France 92500 92500T: +33 1 80 88 45 00 T: +33 1 80 88 45 00 E: E: CEO/President: Thibault Bonnevie CEO/President: Thibault Bonnevie Number Of Employees: 25 Number Of Employees: 25 The Case: The Case: Since 2007 SBG Systems delivers high performance and cost-ef- fective MEMS-based Motion Reference Unit (MRU) and Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) to the Marine industry (40% of its turn over). Its products are mainly used in Offhore, Marine, and Underwater applications. In February 2014, SBG Systems released the Ekinox Subsea Series, a new product range of high accuracy inertial systems operational up to 6,000m.
