EvoLogics GmbH, a manufacturer of underwater communication and positioning systems from Berlin, Germany, will showcase its recent developments at the Ocean Business 2013 exhibition from April 9-11 in Southampton, U.K., including new products, developer solutions and latest updates.
Offering more options for customers, EvoLogics GmbH recently extended its ranges of underwater acoustic modems (S2CR series) and combined positioning and communication devices (S2CR USBL series), with new products – the S2CR 42/65 and S2CR 42/65 USBL, high-speed devices with hemispherical beam patterns for transmissions in vertical, slant and horizontal channels. Both devices rely on the EvoLogics patented S2C (Sweep-Spread Carrier) broadband communication technology to overcome the challenges of dynamic underwater environment and deliver a great performance in various subsea conditions.
The SiNAPS (S2C intelligent Navigation and Positioning Software) was designed to control the EvoLogics USBL (ultrashort baseline) underwater positioning systems and provides easy-to-use display features for real-time tracking of multiple targets, supports interfacing with external instruments and offers advanced data management tools. After releasing the SiNAPS software in 2012, EvoLogics updated it to a newer version in March 2013 and will present the recent version at Ocean Business 2013.
EvoLogics continues to promote underwater networking technologies with a new tool for underwater network protocol developers and end-users of EvoLogics devices – the S2C acoustic modem emulator. A network of virtual underwater acoustic modems, configured and run on EvoLogics server, can be accessed remotely and provides a hardware-free framework for development and end-user training. Code for the modem emulator can be run on actual modems without rewriting. A time-saver for code debugging, the emulator minimizes costs for network protocol development as well as simplifies integration of acoustic modems into underwater infrastructure.
The underwater acoustic modem emulator extends the EvoLogics developer solutions range that already includes the WiSE (White Line Science Edition) line of underwater acoustic modems with an embedded network protocol development platform, providing a flexible framework for designing new network protocols on real hardware.
Presenting EvoLogics innovative robotic solutions, EvoLogics will showcase Sonobot – an autonomous unmanned surface vehicle for hydrographic surveys. It includes the advanced single-beam echo sounder that uses the S2C technology to deliver precise and accurate depth measurements even in very shallow waters. A small, simple and usable platform for planning and executing a hydrographic survey, Sonobot produces accurate geo-referenced bathymetric measurements and high-quality imagery with minimum transport, launch and recovery efforts. EvoLogics team will provide information about Sonobot’s recent field applications and present recent results.
Moreover, EvoLogics founder and CEO Dr. Rudolf Bannasch will report on “Simultaneous underwater positioning and communication for ROVs using acoustic USBL” and the company’s latest developments at 10:30 on Thursday, 11 April 2013, during the Ocean Business 2013 training and demonstration sessions.
