Underwater Tracking Technology

The Micro-Ranger 2 ultra-short baseline acoustic tracking system is built around 6G hardware and Wideband 2 digital acoustic technology. The small, light transceiver can be deployed from a small boat, pontoon or USV. Sonardyne International Ltd.

Abstracts Due for OCEANS’18 Conference

Dec. 1, 2017 is the deadline to submit abstracts in the call for papers from OTO’18 (OCEANS’18 MTS / IEEE Kobe / Techno-Ocean 2018), which will be held May 28-31, 2018 in Kobe, Japan.

The event is hosted by three joint-organizers — the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (IEEE/OES), the Marine Technology Society (MTS) and the Japanese Organization of the Consortium for Techno-Ocean 2018 (CJO) — and will cover every field related to marine technology and ocean engineering.
