Kongsberg Maritime has released its fifth generation of singlebeam echo sounder designed for shallow to medium depth waters and for hull mounted side scan systems.

The new EA 440 supersedes the EA 400 single beam platform, released in 2004, with the addition of a new Wideband Transceiver (WBT).

According to Kongsberg, The new WBT unit in the EA 440 covers all frequencies and comes with a complete new topside software. The system now uses FM Chirp as the transmit pulse.

The EA 440 hardware is designed for using up to four channels at the same time in a small and ruggedised transceiver unit. The WBT can be set up to use any frequency between 30 kHz and 500 kHz.

“The EA 440 comes as part of a new wave of recent technology launches including our new multibeam echo sounder and new cNODE transponders,” said Helge Uhlen, Director of UMAP Sales, Kongsberg Maritime. “We are pleased to bring these new products to market, and are positive that the new technology will support our diverse user base, from subsea survey to underwater construction, to operate more efficiently and to get better results in a more flexible manner.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
