Whether you’re into benthic study or structural survey, ocean or land, ROV or ship-based, there is bound to be something of interest for you from Michael and Jon. With Jon starting at 11:00, each talk will last about 1hr, with 15mins Q&A. Michael will start at 12:15. Please arrive in good time to register at BAS reception.

At 14:00, BAS will also provide a few short 15 minute updates of latest science, engineering and operations that could have collaboration potential, with ample networking opportunity during the afternoon. These talks TBC .

Michael King – Bibby HydroMap – Bibby HydroMap have invested heavily in multi-beam technology and currently own nine systems, four TELEDYNE RESON 7125 SV2 dual frequency 200/400kHz ultra high resolution systems, one TELEDYNE RESON T20 -P dual frequency 200/400kHz system, one TELEDYNE RESON 7101 240kHz unit and three GeoSwath plus shallow water bathymetric sonar systems. They are experienced in a range of disciplines including hydrography, marine engineering geophysics, shallow marine geotechnics, UXO detection, ROV , AUV and tracked ROV survey and inspection, maritime archaeology, benthic sampling, engineering geology, metocean and oceanography.

Dr Jon Chamberlain, University of Essex – In April 2017, in response to an industry-posed challenge, academics from the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at the University of Essex developed a dodecahedron-shaped drone, aiming to capture video of the entire 4π steradians surrounding it. The problem was testing such a drone without getting operators in the field of view and to truly explore a 3-dimensional environment. Adrian Clark, an experienced computer vision researcher, and Jon Chamberlain, a specialist in human-machine interaction and underwater research, offered a solution. The current speed of environment mapping is far greater than any other visual method currently used. The research is spawning new collaborations with interested researchers including Coral Reef Research Unit in Essex’s School of Biological Sciences, where they are working on several new reef conservation projects.
