SeaBeam Strikes Agreement With Allied Signal; Wins Japanese Contract
SeaBeam Instruments, Inc. of East Wapole, Mass., and Allied Signal ELAC Nautik GmbH of Kiel, Germany, have entered into a strategic agreement which will allow the companies to jointly market, sell and technologically support selected segments of their commercial marine electronic product lines.
SeaBeam specializes in the design and production of deep ocean multibeam survey systems, which are deployed aboard ocean survey vessels for conducting bathymetric studies of the sea floor for geophysical exploration, as well as for engineering and military purposes.
Allied Signal ELAS Nautik GmbH equips hydrographic survey vessels with completely integrated suites of marine electronic equipment from single-beam fathometers and subbottom profilers to shallow-water multibeam echosounders.
SeaBeam has also recently been awarded a contract from the Japan Marine Science & Technology Center (JAMSTEC), Yokosuka, Japan, for its SeaBeam 2100 Series multibeam bathymetric survey sonar.
The survey system will include a fully integrated sub-bottom profiler, and will be installed on the R/V Kaiko, a vessel building at the Kawasaki Shipyard.
