“Glideron” multifunctional drone has been tested in practice in Samara

Developers from Samara tested a multi-purpose drone “Glideron”, which inspected the underwater part of the railway bridge across the Sok River, according to Interfax.

In the fall of 2017, specialists from the Samara State Technical University (SSTU) together with the Talisman Design Bureau and the Setecentric Platforms NPC began to create a vehicle for operational monitoring of water areas and coastal territory. Its uniqueness in combining of different functionality into a single design: the simultaneous use of technical features of surface and underwater gliders to solve problems of hydrology, hydrography, hydrophysics. The vehicle is able to walk in semi-submersible and underwater mode automatically on the specified route and depth.

MARINET is developing cooperation with Norwegian partners

The two-day Russian-Norwegian seminar on the development of cooperation in the field of civil shipbuilding, which was attended by representatives of more than 30 companies and organizations of the two countries, was hold on May 28-29, 2019 in Alesund (Norway). The main topics of the seminar were cooperation in the field of localization of solutions of Norwegian companies in Russia and cooperation in the field of innovation and high-tech solutions within the MARINET platform.

MARINET participants have presented their advanced solutions and projects, such as the e-Navigation pilot project (Kronstadt Technologies), Operational satellite services and analytics for the maritime industry (SCANEX),Integrated geophysical 3D mapping of seabed (Marine Innovations), Underwater positioning, navigation and communication (Laboratory of Underwater Communication and Navigation), (more…)

Electromagnetic sounding technology was presented at the forum in Portugal

Scientists from Irkutsk National Research Techical Institute Yuriy Davydenko and Denis Bogdanovic presented at the international forum  Near Surface Geoscience-2018 the technology for electromagnetic sounding in engineering survey and search of hydrocarbons.

At the exhibition stand, the results of two expeditions were presented: shipboard tests of the unified software and hardware complex “MPAC-3D-ELECTRO”. The works were held last summer in the Black Sea in the framework of the MARINET project. The “MPAC-3D-ELECTRO” power source and the measuring station are installed on the ship, and the generator and receiving braids are towed behind the vessel, triggering and recording electromagnetic pulses that transmit information about the structure of the seabed. Such measuring electromagnetic systems have been successfully used for several years by specialists of the Siberian Geophysical Company to search for hydrocarbons on the Russian Arctic shelf.
