Kongsberg to Launch New Products at Ocean Business
Kongsberg Maritime is gearing up to unveil several new products at Ocean Business 2019, alongside its new HUGIN Superior AUV (Autonomous Underwater Vehicle) and its portfolio of solutions for subsea applications.
The visitors will have the opportunity to see the GeoPulse USV (Unmanned Surface Vehicle) in action.
Kongsberg’s new USV is designed for surveying in locations and situations in which deployment of conventional platforms is not practicable, the company explained.
Kongsberg will also show a model of the new Sounder USV, an autonomous platform built to accommodate flexible sensor payloads and diverse applications including fishery research.
Kongsberg will also introduce a new ocean ecosystem assessment platform – an integration of a wideband combined ADCP (Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler) and split-beam transducer option with the Simrad EK80 scientific echo sounder.
Other technologies that the company will show include the latest, upgraded versions of the small-footprint cNODE Embed micro transponder; HAIN (Hydroacoustic Aided Inertial Navigation) systems; the cPAP MkII LBL subsea transceiver for positioning of ROVs and other underwater umbilical-connected vehicles or modules; and the HiPAP acoustic underwater navigation and positioning systems.
“Ocean Business always presents a wonderful, concentrated networking opportunity for delegates,” said Stene Førsund, VP Subsea Sales, Kongsberg Maritime, “Where attendees can take in so much in a short space of time. For us, it provides an ideal, targeted environment for showcasing and demonstrating our product range – and with this year’s launches, there’s every reason to suggest that it will be a particularly special event.”
