Sonardyne Subsea Modems for 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.”
