180 hours of FREE DEMOS
Visitors are spoilt for choice, with over 180 hours of live, free to attend demos being held in twelve parallel sessions. The training and demonstration programme makes full use of the onsite facilities at the National Oceanography Centre by utilising their classrooms, vessels, dockside waters and the test tank.
Vessels Training Sessions
Multi-beam sonar systems to current profilers and towed vehicles demonstrations will be held on the RV Callista catamaran research vessel plus a range of smaller work boats that a number of exhibitors will moor directly alongside. Among the confirmed demonstrations to date is the EdgeTech Side Scan Sonar and New Discover II software and the Kongsberg Acoustics Geoswath Plus which offers simultaneous multi-beam swath bathymetry sidescan seabed mapping with accuracies exceeding the IHO standards for Hydrographic Surveys.
Dockside Training Sessions
The Hyroid Remus 100 Vehicle will once again showcase its capabilities by providing live demonstrations in the dockside waters; this vehicle is small enough to be carried by two people, yet contains enough sophisticated sensor, navigation, and power resources to enable it to perform intricate sonar and oceanographic surveys over large areas. A full range of AUV and ROV manufacturers are exhibiting at Ocean Business and full details can be found in the schedule online.
Test Tank Training Sessions
ROVs, underwater cameras, hydrophones and mooring systems are just a few of the demonstrations held throughout the week in the test tank. This facility allows companies to fully display their capabilities and provides visitors with excellent viewing opportunities from above and below the water line.
Classroom Training Sessions
Classroom workshops range in length from one hour where a general overview is provided to three hour in-depth presentations. Confirmed demonstrations to date include HYPACK with a three hour overview of their multi-beam software; Positioneering with a demonstration of the next generation of GNSS precise positioning technology; HELZEL Messtechnik with the Ocean Radar WERA used for operational monitoring.
The full programme is now in place. Individuals wishing to participate in the workshop series can either apply directly to the individual company in advance of the show (who all have a limited number of tickets available for serious buyers) or sign up onsite.
Whether it is on or in the test tank or in one of the many classrooms, you can meet with suppliers old and new, find out about the latest technologies and equipment and most importantly take advantage of the unique opportunity to actually test drive these systems.
