Guidance Marine Hires Sonardyne Vessel for Sensor Trials

Sonardyne International has recently chartered one of its Plymouth-based trials vessels to Guidance Marine.

Echo Explorer, a 12 meter survey-class catamaran, and its crew were hired to support sea acceptance trials of Guidance Marine’s new long-range microwave position reference sensor, Artemis Mk6, ahead of its official launch.

Built in 2014, Echo Explorer is one of four vessels Sonardyne operates from its Sea Trials and Training Centre in Plymouth.

For Guidance Marine’s trial, an Artemis Mk6 was installed on the roof of Echo Explorer and its performance compared to a Mk5 and another Mk6 unit positioned onshore.

Milijan Mudrinic, software technologies group manager at Guidance Marine said: “The controlled tests we undertook on Echo Explorer were invaluable in proving the quality of our Mk6 sensor and its capabilities. Sonardyne’s crew were instrumental in making the trial a success and we are grateful for all their help.”
