V-PILOT Control System for USVs

Reygar has launched V-PILOT, an integrated autopilot and mission planning system for USVs. The system uses an embedded vessel controller and a shore-side user interface to connect to existing GPS, thrusters, steering and associated command systems. V-PILOT can be used for small and large unmanned vessels for both inshore and coastal survey and inspection operations. The system has flexible survey

Free EMODnet Geology Shoreline-Migration Map

The new EMODnet Geology shoreline-migration map has been released and is free to access from the EMODnet Geology portal. It allows policy makers, together with national and regional coastal managers, to determine large-scale coastal behavior and identify areas of rapid change. It is based on field measurements and aerial photography, and covers time periods up to decades. This technique is particularly valuable

Fugro Part of Remote Sat Seafloor Mapping

Fugro is participating in an EU co-funded research and innovation project to develop a remote solution for global satellite-derived seafloor mapping. The three-year project, named “4S” (Satellite Seafloor Survey Suite), will develop an online cloud-based solution that will use highly automated Earth-observation algorithms and workflows to remotely map and monitor seafloor habitats, morphology and shallow-water bathymetry. Fugro will lead the
