  • This event has passed.

Whether you’re into benthic study or structural survey, ocean or land, ROV or ship-based, there is bound to be something of interest to you.

Each talk will last about 1hr with time for Q&A.  At 14:00, BAS will provide a few short updates of latest science, engineering and operations that could have collaboration potential.

With ample networking opportunity during the afternoon, this is not to be missed.



11:00     Dr Jon Chamberlain, University of Essex

In April 2017, academics from the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at the University of Essex developed a dodecahedron-shaped drone, aiming to capture video of the entire 4π steradians surrounding it.  The problem was testing such a drone without getting operators in the field of view and to truly explore a 3-dimensional environment.  Adrian Clark, an experienced computer vision researcher, and Jon Chamberlain, a specialist in human-machine interaction and underwater research, offered a solution.

12:15     Michael King, Bibby HydroMap

Bibby HydroMap have invested heavily in multi-beam technology and currently own nine systems, four TELEDYNE RESON 7125 SV2 dual frequency 200/400kHz ultra high resolution systems, one TELEDYNE RESON T20 -P dual frequency 200/400kHz system, one TELEDYNE RESON 7101 240kHz unit and three GeoSwath plus shallow water bathymetric sonar systems.  They are experienced in a range of disciplines including hydrography, marine engineering geophysics, shallow marine geotechnics, UXO detection, ROV , AUV and tracked ROV survey and inspection, maritime archaeology, benthic sampling, engineering geology, metocean and oceanography.
