Underwater Intervention 2012

It’s time, once again, for the Underwater Intervention (UI) conference, which takes place January 24 to 26 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. The conference is sponsored by the Association of Diving Contractors International (ADCI) and the Marine Tech­nology Society’s (MTS) ROV Committee, now in their 21st year of partnership.

UI 2012, organizers said, will continue attracting top industry leaders in commercial diving, ROVs, AUVs, oil and gas, marine construction, shipwreck exploration and salvage, submersibles, communications, bridges and dams, nuclear and hydro energy, ocean mining, oceanography and marine technology.

This year’s technical program will have presentations covering cutting-edge advancements in technology and new equipment. Highlights include advanced electronic technologies for divers; an American Electric Power contract training program; Analox Hyper-Gas MkII training; a case study of remote sensing in construction; generating 3D models from underwater video; lithium-ion battery system for manned underwater vehicles; bathymetry and biotope surveys in the Red Sea; marine debris and underwater technology; and navy hull inspections.

Other programs include an ROV competition, work-class ROV repair in less than 60 minutes, integrating equipment to work-class ROVs and a technical program on fiber-optic connectivity. Special events for UI 2012 begin on the evening of January 23 on the show floor with the traditional early-bird reception, which features food, music and networking opportunities.
