Norway: Kongsberg Launches Latest MS 1000 Software Version

Norway Kongsberg Launches Latest MS 1000 Software Version.

 

Kongsberg Mesotech Ltd. announces the latest version of MS 1000 software for MS 1071 and MS 1171 Digital Scanning Sonar. MS 1000 Version 5.0 marks a major change in direction for this software.

Alan Zhao, Software Product Manager for the company summarized the new approach this way. “We have recognized and responded to the needs of our customers for different levels of sonar processing with the development and release of MS 1000 Version 5.0. We have been able to do this in a way that provides no-charge software updates for all users and more specialized and productive software tools for specific user groups.”

The entry level software, known as MS 1000 Express Edition, provides basic operating functions for Kongsberg Mesotech Ltd, digital sonar. The Express Edition is suitable for many applications, such as obstacle avoidance for ROVs and certain imaging applications. The Express Edition does not require a software key for operation. The Express Edition kit is available for CAD$250.00 including supporting documentation.

Those customers requiring increased functionality can continue to purchase the full version of MS 1000, known as MS 1000 Standard Edition. The full package, MS 1000 Standard Edition, is enabled using a software key and is priced at CAD$ 6,975.00. Users of the Express Edition can upgrade with the purchase of a software key (dongle). Users of the earlier MS 1000 Lite software will be able to upgrade to either the Express Edition or Standard Edition. English, German and Mandarin user interfaces are provided for both editions of Version 5.0.

The needs of users requiring higher levels of sonar processing will be served by additional software modules in future. The 3D Optional Module will acquire 3D profile points for accurate point cloud representation of underwater structures. This data can be further enhanced using one of a number of commercially available post processing packages, including Trimble RealWorks and Leica Cyclone.

Version 5.0 is also fully compatible with Microsoft® Windows 7 Pro Edition, Microsoft® Windows 7 Ultimate Edition, and earlier Microsoft® Windows versions, notably Microsoft® Windows XP Pro. Kongsberg Mesotech Ltd.’s commitment to keeping pace with developing standards minimizes computer compatibility issues for our customers. Microsoft® Windows 64 bit USB Driver, and 32/64 bit serial interface drivers have been added to expand the usefulness of Kongsberg Scanning Sonar and keep pace with developments in 64 bit operating systems. Certified USB drivers can be obtained from either the MS 1000 installation directory or from the Microsoft® Windows Update® website. Kongsberg also provides rack-mount and ruggedized laptop computer processors from recognized computer manufacturers.

Substructures for UK Offshore Wind

Design, construction and installation

Optimising offshore substructures is one of the key challenges for reducing LCOE. Foundation designers have produced a variety of different solutions: monopiles, GBS, jackets, suction buckets and floating foundations. Looking at U.K. projects – different soils, water depths,fabrication timelines and installation challengescreate many questions for the industry to solve. We’re entering uncharted territory; projects arelarger, farther and more complex than ever completed.

Now is the time to have a close look at lessons learnt and define the room for improvement for the U.K. wind industry.
