Sonardyne Subsea Modems for KSIRO

Crabster by KSIRO

Sonardyne Asia in Singapore, and its Korean agent, Insung have supplied underwater communications equipment that enables video transmission and untethered control of the unmanned vehicles to Korean Research Institute of Ships and Ocean Engineering (KRISO).

Namely, Sonardyne’s BlueComm 100-series optical modems will be used to stream imagery from cameras installed on seafloor sensor platforms and command ‘Crabster’, an autonomous walking and flying crab-like robot being developed by KRISO’s ocean systems engineering department.

Anthony Gleeson, VP of Sonardyne in Singapore said: “Now that it’s possible to send and receive data underwater at speeds comparable to domestic broadband, it’s exciting to consider the huge range of potential applications for BlueComm.

“KRISO are the first institute in our region to invest in BlueComm and we are delighted that this unique technology will help to advance their pioneering ocean research.”

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.
