EdgeTech: 6205 Bathymetry System Presented at St. John’s Harbor

EdgeTech, the leader in high resolution sonar imaging systems and underwater technology, mapped St. John’s Harbor in record time during the recent Canadian Hydrographic Conference.

During the on-water demonstrations, EdgeTech’s recently introduced 6205 Bathymetry System collected co-registered bathymetry and side scan sonar data in less than 3 hours. The processed data created a stunning bathymetric map of the complete harbor and the “Narrows” entrance to the harbor.

Traditional multi-beams used to map the harbor previously had taken considerably more time due to their narrow swath coverage. Multi-beam systems in their design are inefficient in shallow water due to the narrow 3 to 4 times water depth coverage.

Additionally, traditional multi-beam systems do not produce true side scan sonar data nor do they operate at simultaneous dual frequencies.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
