Capabilities include automatic detection of icebergs embedded in pack ice, identification of open-water leads, and detection of ice ridges within ice floes. Rutter Inc.

Automatic Profiling Buoy
APB5 has applications for coastal waters, fjords, lakes and fish farms. It measures salinity, temperature, turbidity, conductivity, oxygen, fluorescence, current speed, sonar and depth. Real-time data are accessible on the Internet. Profiling depth is up to 75 m and extendable to 150 m. SAIV A/S.

Moving Platform LiDAR
A new moving platform integrated LiDAR solution for subsea data collection and survey projects was designed for AUV, ROV and manned underwater vehicles. It reduces survey time while delivering high-density point clouds for greater accuracy in data modeling and measurement. 3D at Depth.

Vertical Profiling
To obtain a 2D depth-time data record for time-series sensors, the Wirewalker has a single sensor that is rapidly profiled. The Wirewalker harnesses the power of ocean waves for rapid propulsion and produces measurements decoupled from the vertical motion of the sea surface. Del Mar Oceanographic LLC.

Portable Echosounder
The DT-X Extreme can be a portable system for mobile fisheries or aquatic habitat surveys using a laptop computer for control and data acquisition. It can be used as an autonomous data logger for USV deployments and/or extended, fixed-station monitoring applications. BioSonics Inc.

Cable Set
