USA: Sonardyne’s Acoustic and Dynamic Positioning Expertise on Show at APSG & MTS’ DP

A busy conference season in Houston will see Sonardyne Inc. participating at the Association of Petroleum Surveying and Geomatics (APSG) Fall meeting, 11th October, and the Marine Technology Society’s (MTS) Dynamic Positioning (DP) Conference, 9th-10th October. Sonardyne will be presenting technical papers at both events, one looking at the evolution of acoustic positioning and the other, the development of inertial navigation for dynamic positioning technologies.

Held twice a year, APSG’s meetings attract professionals in the fields of geomatics, surveying, positioning, geospatial data management and mapping sciences from a wide variety of companies and contractors. Each meeting is based on a topical theme, with this year’s Fall gathering looking at ‘New Positioning Technologies.’ Taking place at Greenway Plaza, Houston, Jon Martin, Sonardyne’s Navigation Systems Engineer, will be presenting ‘Subsea positioning through the ages’, a paper looking at the development of the available technologies across the years.

As a company we regularly attend APSG meetings; they are great platforms for sharing knowledge and information,” said Jon. “This year’s theme is providing us with an opportunity to look back at the birth of subsea acoustics and chart its evolution through to Sonardyne’s current 6G product range offering precision, reliability and speed for significant operational savings.”

Held annually and with a similar theme, the MTS DP Conference is internationally recognised as the leading professional symposium covering the latest changes, developments and technology pertaining to dynamic positioning. As part of this year’s conference at the Memorial City Hotel, Houston, James Allen, INS Programme Manager at Sonardyne will be presenting a paper in the ‘Sensors II’ section of the conference in collaboration with Captain Tim White from Oceaneering International titled ‘Reliable operational use of Acoustically Aided INS for DP in the Gulf of Mexico.’

Commenting on the event, James said, “The conference is a prestigious event in the DP industry so to be accepted to present alongside Oceaneering International is fantastic recognition. We’re looking forward to discussing our latest DP innovations and results from the field with other like-minded professionals.”

The results from the paper being presented will also be available to view on Stand 21.
