Oceanographic Instrumentation: Measurement, Process & Analysis
? ve days before refueling. This speed/ range combination maximizes acquisition effectiveness while minimizing launch and recovery operations. As a force multiplier, it can operate concurrently alongside traditional survey vessels, dramatically increasing survey ef? ciency.
The C-Worker 5 uses a direct drive marine diesel propulsion system operated via
ASV’s proven ASView control system. The
C-Worker 5 integrates quickly and easily with a wide variety of payloads including hull mounted and towed sensors. The
ASView control system enables line plans from a variety of data acquisition systems to be uploaded for ef? cient data collec- tion. “The C-Worker 5 is an exciting new
ASV that will dramatically help our clients’ bottom line,” said Thomas Chance, ASV’s
Chairman. “The new vehicle also comple-
D-2 Marine ments ASV’s C-Worker 6 and C-Worker
D-2 will introduce at Oceanology a newly designed Conductivity, Temperature, and, 7 product line which can accommodate
Depth, (CTD) modular sensor suite that will improve oceanographic data collection larger payloads.” The C-Worker 5 will on a variety of deployment platforms, especially UUV/ AUV’s. The CTD sensors are be unveiled publicly for the ? rst time at well suited to platforms which require sensors to be a small and low power. A ‘Hy-
brid’ fully internal ? eld conductivity sensor with ideal length to wetted surface area
Booth #: G401 can be used with or with an aspirating pump. This sensor is optimized UUV/AUV/
Drifter platforms which will bene? t from much smaller sensor, which consumes
Bibby HydroMap less energy less, and does not require a water pump, even at very low platform ve-
Bibby HydroMap will be presenting a locities, hence allowing extended data collection capability in all applications. The number of interesting developments, new sensor is also well suited to arctic environment deployments as the sensor will including the widely anticipated results of not freeze at the air sea interface. The conductivity sensor has a fully contained its latest d’ROP survey trials. These will be electric ? eld so can be mounted in close proximity to other equipment. Both static revealed initially at an exclusive invite-only and dynamic accuracy/precision allow for full ocean depth deployment. Designed session on Tuesday, March 15, at 14:30, and built by D-2 Marine Corp., a fully owned subsidiary of D-2 Incorporated an
American ISO 9001:2008 certi? ed manufacturer with 25+ years’ experience in d’ROP high precision measurement instruments.

BMT Group, an international multi-disci- at 17 14:30. On its exhibition stand visi- plinary engineering, science and tech- tors are encouraged to take part in the nology consultancy will demonstrate its ‘d’ROP Challenge,’ to be in with a chance integrated approach to better understand- to win their own limited edition d’ROP and ing the operational complexities of the one of a kind Bibby Athena. To complete marine environment. Through a suite of the challenge, entrants will build their own d’ROP using colourful interlocking bricks from a popular unnamed toy brand.
If they complete the challenge within the speci? ed time, they take home their own d’ROP, and if they score the fastest time of the entire show they are awarded with a replica Bibby Athena.
