Project “MPC-3D” for 3D modeling and areal survey of sea-bed is supported by NTI

New MARINET project is supported by NTI – Development of multi-purpose software-hardware complex for 3D modeling and areal survey of sea-bed for the purpose of mineral resources exploration and engineering-geological support for the construction of underwater structures. The project budget is 15 MUSD including 8,25 MUSD of government support within the NTI.

A multi-purpose hardware-software complex is developed by Marine Innovarion Ltd. for high-precision 3D modeling of sea-bed structure for the purpose of mineral resources exploration and monitoring, as well as for for conduction of engineer-surveys on the shelf consisting of the following inter-related modules:


Undewater IoT. Underwater Communication & Navigation Laboratory

Underwater Communication & Navigation Laboratory is a Russian developer and manufacturer of commercially available devices and complexes for underwater wireless navigation and communication, used by divers and ROV/AUV in a wide range of underwater works.

UC&NL products include various navigation solutions (long base, ultrashort base-line) with outstanding characteristics. These products have no analogs in the world. We develop and manufacture underwater digital wireless data transmission systems. (more…)

Multifrequency traverse-scan sonar for monitoring of marine bioresources in shallow water on technologies of nonlinear acoustics (MTSS)

Multifrequency traverse-scan sonar for monitoring marine bioresources in shallow water using nonlinear acoustics technologies (MTSS) is intended for horizontal location of fish accumulations and single fishes, monitoring of marine bioresources in adverse search and fishing conditions of shallow water.

MTSS is intended for consumers conducting research (search, detection, monitoring, evaluation) and catch of marine bioresources in inland waters and on the offshore shelf.

Currently, only echo sounders (vertical location) are used to detect and monitor bioresources in shallow water. The scanned area of the water space in the echo sounders is very limited. At shallow depths, when the vessel moves, the “scaring effect” has a significant effect on fish behavior. Devices of horizontal location (“conventional” sonars) with a large field of scan are extremely inefficient due to reverberation and multiple reflections of acoustic signals from the bottom and the surface.

Multi-channel electro-prospecting streamer for marine engineering surveys

The purpose of the development is to create a comprehensive technology of effective marine engineering surveys to minimize the risks in construction and operation of technical structures on the shelf: drilling platforms, gas pipelines, etc., which is achieved by studying the bottom sediment with a set of geophysical methods as well as by monitoring these facilities during the period of operation.

The result of the use of these technologies will be creation of an integrated geological and geophysical cross-section down to a depth of 500 meters. In association with seismic and echolocation data, the use of electrical exploration technologies will allow to identify such geo-electric heterogeneities in the upper part of the cross-section as gas pockets, gas hydrates, zones of permafrost and fault zones.

Circular thermoelectric generating module

The creation of remote energy sources is a resource-intensive and complex task. There are important questions of necessity to provide long-term operation, reliability and absence of vibrations are sharply raised. Often, such energy sources are discarded in favor of simpler alternatives because of the increased cost of generated energy. But, thanks to the rapid development of semiconductor technologies and an increase in the efficiency of thermoelectric processes, new opportunities have appeared to increase the efficiency of remote systems.

The goal of the project is to create a reliable source of energy for remote marine infrastructure facilities and marine autonomous underwater vehicles. This project implements an innovative device approach of a remote electric power source. Reliability, safety, environmental cleanliness in combination with compact dimensions and high efficiency are ensured. (more…)
