Enhanced Offshore Inspection
An internal gravity-deployed ultrasonic scanning tool, SIRIUS-X is built for ultrasonic corrosion mapping in offshore caissons, risers and conductors. It has a high-torque rotary drive and scan speeds up to 5 m per hour. Its small footprint with minimal hydro-dynamic drag allows operation in elevated sea states to 200-m depth. AISUS.
Emergency Immersion Suit
These immersion suits are built from 5-mm, flame-retardant neoprene with SOLAS-grade reflective patches for survival in a capsize situation. The face mask, inflatable pillow, three-fingered mitts and ankle adjustments are high-contrast for visibility. The IMO RES 207(81) version includes a stainless steel lifting harness and buddy line. Kent Safety Products.

3,000-mm Ocean Buoy
The ATLANTIC-3000 buoy is manufactured from UV-stabilized polyethylene with a 3-m-diameter float section. It has a focal height of up to 6 m and can support payloads such as lanterns, power supplies and telemetry. It has rotationally molded collars that connect to a central core float. Sealite.

Doppler Profiler
The Sentinel V acoustic Doppler current profiler has high-speed wireless and increased memory. It has a flood-resistant electronics chamber and one-touch activation individual transducers with data rates up to 16 Hz. Teledyne RDI.

Personal Rescue Strobe
A dedicated life jacket safety light includes a 200-lumen LED bulb housed in a Lexan lens with 360° visibility. It can be used for deep-sea diving to 1,000 ft. and is visible for over 2 mi. Weems & Plath.

Mobile App for Water Monitoring
VuSitu provides directed data analysis and allows site photos and GPS coordinates to be organized in a central location. The Android app has a built-in workflow for groundwater and low-flow sampling events, and it can be paired to a tablet for input via barcode scanner. In-Situ Inc.

Portable USV
Z-Boat 1250 is a remotely operated hydrographic survey boat with a collapsible sliding crossbar and streamlined design with no rudder or steering linkages. It is rated to survey in streams, rivers and lakes, as well as mining pits, tailing ponds, construction and inspection zones, dams, reservoirs and harbors. Teledyne Oceanscience.

Expanded Payload Sensor Platform
SBI SeaKite is the ScanFish XL ROTV with PanGeo Subsea’s SBI 3D acoustic SAS capabilities. The combination provides a multisensor towed survey solution as well as an expansion of the ScanFish ROTV system payload from 50 kg to 350 kg. The ROTV measures 4.33 x 2.73 x 2.77 m, weighs 1,840 kg and is neutrally buoyant in water. EIVA a/s.

Dynamic Positioning Systems
Integrated GNSS and inertial technology allows for precise heading determination as well as spoofing detection capabilities. DPS i2 and DPS i4 are fully scalable, and they use a motion gyrocompass and reference unit, allowing users to create operation-specific presentations. Kongsberg Maritime AS.

Man-Overboard Alert System
ALERT418 uses a radio signal to avoid satellite lag and interfaces with chart plotting software so a waypoint can be set upon activation. It can be wired to kill engines and activate external strobes and speakers. It has GPS, a DB-9 serial port and dry contacts. Emerald Marine Products.

Gas Lift Diffusion for Bulk Carriers
Ballast water treatment using inert gas does not require filtering or chemical dosing. The GLD system treats water in voyage to reduce water pH and induce ultrasonic shockwaves to kill problematic organisms in water. Coldharbour Marine Ltd.

Dual Stabilized Beam Sonar
The HD860 sonar has both a narrow beam for long-range scans and a wide beam for detailed information. Bottom-typing reveals hard- and soft-bottom conditions. Active stabilization is provided by a precision electronic gyroscope. WESMAR.

UV-Stable Marine Adhesive
Marine adhesive sealants must survive vibration, swelling and shrinking and apply to bedding on fiberglass hulls, sealing around porthole frames and screw holes for both through-hull and deck hardware. The marine adhesive sealant 4000 UV was developed to maximize UV stability and prevent fading, chalking and cracking. 3M Marine.

Pop-Up Buoy Recovery System (PUB)
This system for retrieval of seabed packages can be mounted to any framework on the seafloor. When the acoustic release is activated, the buoy subassembly lifts free and rises to the surface. A synthetic line connects the buoy to the framework of the seabed item and allows for retrieval. DeepWater Buoyancy Inc.

Tiny Sensor Transmitter
The V7TP can measure temperature and/or depth and enables tracking and 3D VPS studies of small animals. It has improved accuracy over the current V9P and offers more range options than the current V7. It is available in high- and low-power options. VEMCO.

Immersed Computer Power
The PT578 integrates programmed digital protection and paralleling circuitry. The 500 W PT578 operates at temperatures from -25 to +70° C. It includes an active PFC and three output protection modes and is designed for convection cooling. Powerbox.

LED Flasher for AUVs and Gliders
Anglerfish is a deep-sea flasher designed to assist vehicle recovery. The 380-lumen LED can be seen from 5 nm. It weighs 30 grams in water, has a power draw of 0.55 W and is available in depth ratings to 2,500 m. Arctic Rays LLC.

Bathymetric Data Cleaning
HIPS and SIPS 10.4 is a data processing tool with boresight calibration. It includes support for R2Sonic TruePix imagery, Kongsberg KMALL and Triton XTF. Teledyne CARIS.

Integrated Propulsion
Three60 Pod 650 is an integrated maneuvering system for control of engine rpm and pod transmission direction using lever control heads; the steering helm controls pod vectoring. A joystick allows fingertip controls in slow-speed operation. Caterpillar Marine.

Remote-Control UV Technology
Live-view, remote-control technology enables multiple users to operate UUVs and cameras from any Web-enabled device. It can be used with the Endura ROV, Hybrid AUV/ROV and AquaLens Connect underwater camera system. Aquabotix.

GFCI Receptacle
This GFCI duplex receptacle complies with the 2015 UL 943 requirement to automatically monitor circuit functionality every 3 hours or less for protection against electrical shock. Hubbell Marine Electrical Products.

Freshwater Generator
The AQUA Blue S-type generator uses existing seawater cooling system pumps to cut electrical power by 70 percent. Alfa Laval Marine Division.
