MacArtney Delivers Focus 2 ROTV to German WTD 71

German navy research institute, WehrTechnische Dienststelle, WTD 71, has taken delivery of MacArtney Focus 2 ROTV system.

WTD 71, with the main task of developing new underwater technologies for the German navy, will use Focus 2 ROTV as a tool for their research efforts.

The system is supplied with MacArtney Luxus compact low light cameras, ORE trackpoint 3 USBL transponder, Valeport MiniSVS sound velocity sensor and Imaginex FL forward looking sonar.

In addition, the Focus system has been prepared for installation of Raytheon ProSAS synthetic aperture sonar, Reson multibeam sonar and Kearfott INS.

A special interface has been developed for integration of a range of WTD 71 developed sensors, MacArtney said.

“We consider it a unique opportunity for MacArtney’s engineering team to carry out the very positive and challenging teamwork with WTD 71,” said Torsten Turla, managing director of MacArtney Germany. “Aiming to develop new underwater technologies for the German navy, WTD 71 has stipulated a number of demands that we have done our utmost to meet. The result is most satisfactory to all parties involved and we look forward to continuing our good and productive working relationship with WTD 71,” he added.

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.
