Micro. For when good is good enough

Micro-Ranger 2 is our smallest ever Ultra-Short BaseLine (USBL) system, designed for first-time users to unpack, install and start tracking. It’s providing an easy to deploy yet important tool for monitoring coastal habitats in Australia, as Fathom Pacific’s Director and Principal Consultant Dr Adrian Flynn sets out for us.

Extending the limits of autonomous systems

Improving the endurance and navigational precision of underwater autonomous systems, while also reducing costs, could provide disruptive capability in the subsea monitoring and inspection space. Geraint West, Ocean Science Head of Market, explore the challenges and solutions.

Mini-Ranger 2. Recovering lost history

Mini-Ranger 2 offers many of the features of our top performing system, but is smaller, making it ideal for temporary use on chartered workboats. Recently, it’s been in service with James Fisher Marine Services who are helping to raise a piece of otherwise lost World War II aviation history.

Measuring Mount Etna – an underwater monitoring first

A network of our instruments deployed by scientists from GEOMAR Helmholtz for 15 months has measured underwater slippage of the southeast flank of Europe’s most active volcano, Mount Etna, for the first time. Read more here.

Long endurance monitoring of tectonic motion

On land, GPS and laser observations enable precise geodetic measurements. Until recently, the inability to undertake cost-effective complementary subsea has not been possible. Read how GEOMAR Helmholtz have been using our monitoring technology to measuring tectonic plate movements.

Unlocking the Gulf Loop Current

Randy Watts, Professor of Oceanography at the of the University of Rhode Island, sets out how our PIES are part of a project to improve the forecasting of underwater ‘storms’ in the Gulf of Mexico.
