Nautikaris official Ouster dealer

We are happy to announce that Nautikaris is an official dealer of Ouster LIDAR solutions.

High-resolution lidar sensors for long, mid, and short range applications

We transformed lidar from an analog device with thousands of components to an elegant digital device powered by one chip-scale laser array and one CMOS sensor. The result is a full range of high-resolution lidar sensors that deliver superior imaging at a dramatically lower price.

A little information about Lidar

LiDAR, or light detection and ranging, is a popular remote sensing method used for measuring the exact distance of an object on the earth’s surface. Even though it was first used in the 1960s when laser scanners were mounted to aeroplanes, LiDAR didn’t get the popularity it deserved until twenty years later. It was only during the 1980s after the introduction of GPS that it became a popular method for calculating accurate geospatial measurements. Now that its scope has spread across numerous fields, we should know more about LiDAR mapping technology and how it works.

Affordable DIGITAL LIDAROuster sensors are the most affordable   high-resolution lidar sensors available today:

→Lowest price at all levels of resolution

→InternalIMU included

→Unique ambient data output enables lidar-only perception algorithms

→Price falls with volume purchases

→Beam spacing options available to get improved perception out of fewer beams

Vector V200

Hemisphere GNSS Announces Multi-GNSS Vector™ V200 GNSS Compass

Hemisphere GNSS Announces New Atlas®-Capable, Multi-GNSS Vector™ V200 GNSS Compass

Hemisphere GNSS, Inc. (Hemisphere) announces the all-new single-frequency, multi-GNSS
Vector™ V200 GNSS Compass smart antenna with integrated Atlas L-band designed for general
marine applications and markets.

Powered by Hemisphere’s Crescent® Vector technology, the Vector™ V200 GNSS Compass
is a multi-GNSS compass system
that utilizes GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, and QZSS (with future firmware upgrade and
activation) for simultaneous satellite tracking to offer heading, position, heave, pitch, and roll
output. With support for NMEA 0183 and NMEA 2000, integrating Atlas L-band corrections, and
continuing to offer ease of installation, the V200 packages and offers exceptional value and
performance. The V200 excels in providing accurate position and heading information to
autopilots, chart plotters, and other general marine navigation applications.

The all-in-one V200 GNSS compass combines Hemisphere’s Crescent Vector H220 OEM board, two
superior multipath and noise-rejecting antennas (spaced 20 cm apart), a multi-axis gyro, and tilt
sensors in a single easy-to-install and use enclosure. The V200 delivers 1.5 degree (or optional 0.75
degree) heading accuracy and Atlas L-band accuracies of 30 cm to 60 cm and offers
instantaneous sub-meter accuracy and DGPS-level accuracy.

Measuring only 35 cm in length, the V200 can be either pole or surface mounted and comes in
either 5- or 12-pin options that require only a single power/data cable connection for fast and
reliable installations, even in the presence of strong radio transmissions.

“The Vector V200 GNSS compass represents significant enhancements to our industry-leading
models it replaces, providing even greater performance, improved robustness, and excellent
value,” says Miles Ware, director of marketing at Hemisphere. “Users now have an even higher
performing all-in-one Vector for their marine applications with the addition of BeiDou, Galileo, and
QZSS as well as Atlas L-band corrections.”

VideoRay PRO 5

VideoRay Pro 5 in the Netherlands

The new VideoRay Pro 5 arrived in the Netherlands

This week two VideoRay Pro 5 ROV’s arrived at our office and are for our customer RPS in the Netherlands.

Mission Specialist Pro 5

The VideoRay Mission Specialist Series (MSS) Pro 5 configuration is designed for speed and efficiency, weighing in at 10kg (22lb). The three-thruster system has forward speed of over 4.4 knots, and utilizes a system of interchangeable, modular components residing on a single, intelligent network. The Pro 5 is designed to handle missions with size, space, weight, and deployment speed constraints, such as infrastructure inspections beyond the reach of divers, search & recovery, exploring the ocean floor up to 305m, and various others. The Pro 5 builds on the strengths of the Pro 4, with more thrust, longer tether lengths, higher resolution video, and the advantages of the MSS modular systems.

Deep Ocean Engineering Phantom T-Series in action


Pipeline inspections

One of Deep Ocean Engineering ‘s Phantom® T4-H ROVs has successfully completed a series of pipeline inspections that Underwater Resources, Inc. performed for their client, EBMUD. The T4-H ROV inspected sections of the Mokelumne Aqueduct Raw Water Pipeline. The system was outfitted with a pipe profiling sonar and three video cameras. The ROV traversed three, nearly thousand foot long, eight foot diameter, inverted siphon pipelines running under the San Joaquin river. These pipelines provide EBMUD with 90% of their water supply.

Since June 1st 2017 Nautikaris has become the exclusive distributor of Full Oceans polyethylene buoys. Apart from the high quality LED Aids to Navigation we cover the complete range of Polyethylene Marine Buoys with their optional equipment.
We will be offering navigation aids buoys, mooring buoys and mooring link chains and Swivels. In short, Durable and reliable, our buoy’s range is the perfect solution to meet the needs of maritime, coastal, offshore and river projects. This is why Full Oceans offer a seven year warranty on their buoys.
High Life Expectancy:
Compared to steel buoys, plastic buoys will not corrode and our floats are designed for a long-lasting activity.Service and Maintenance:
UV-stabilized polyethylene limits marine growth and enables an easy and fast cleaning “on board”. Large intervals between servicing result in major costs savings.
No painting needed.
Lifting and mooring points can be replaced easily and within a few minutes.
Float and mast can also be repaired in case of damage.Transport:
Full Oceans polyethylene buoys have a modular design optimizes container loading and makes the fret easier and cheaper.Reliable Optional Equipments
Marine Lanterns:
Supplied by Carmanah and Sabik Marine Lanterns, the reliable world market leader. Self-contained LED lanterns.Top Marks (optional for lateral buoys):
Integrating the same level of design and quality as on our buoys. Perfectly adapted to the needs of each buoy.

Mooring Devices:
Wide range of steel chains, sinkers, swivels and shackles adapted to our buoys.

Quality Manufacturing:
Designed and made in France
Stability of floats: Our polyethylene buoys are built to guarantee an excellent buoyancy and remain unsinkable.
High visibility: Pigments matching IALA specifications are directly integrated into the polyethylene. No painting required.
Shock resistance: Our entire range of polyethylene buoys guarantees an excellent resistance to impacts. Polyethylene is a shape-memory polymer (after a violent shock, our floats recover their initial shapes).
Tension: Our floats are also developed to ensure a strong pull out resistance

MOTUS Wave Buoys – Measurement in Motion

Aanderaa introduces a unique way of measuring waves from buoys!

MOTUS Wave Sensor

MOTUS Wave measurement

MOTUS Wave Buoys Measure will change the operatio of wave direction with market leading accuracy. Marine traffic along the coast needs reliable information on weather, wind and sea state. Such measurements are often obtained using moored buoys with real-time data transmission to users on shore and at sea. The buoys are equipped with various sensors able to measure the parameters needed. The more measurements performed at one buoy the more useful and cost-effective the installation becomes.
