Hydrographic Survey Equipment Market Industry Developments

  • In March 2021, The Royal Navy (The U.K.) had tested cutting-edge software to map the seabed. The HMS Magpie (survey vessel) was able to chart the waters around Plymouth purely by using the technologically advanced Radar-based bathymetric survey system. The installed radar system was installed with specialized computer program which measures wave height.

  • In February 2020, Kongsberg Maritime and Indian National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) had signed a contract for the sale of a HUGIN AUV system to the NIOT. The HUGIN AUV system ordered by NIOT was equipped with a EM2040 multiband echo sounder, specially designed for seabed and hydrographic applications.
