Fugro has accomplished a landmark knowledge acquisition marketing campaign over the Turks and Caicos Islands, marking the primary business success of its new Rapid Airborne Multibeam Mapping System (RAMMS).
Working beneath contract to the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office (UKHO), over 7,400 sq. kilometres of built-in, high-resolution bathymetric, topographic and picture knowledge had been acquired. The ensuing deliverables will assist up to date nautical charts and coastal zone administration actions within the area.
Launched in August 2018, RAMMS is a extremely environment friendly, next-generation airborne bathymetric mapping system that makes use of multibeam laser know-how to ship industry-leading depth penetration and level densities. The compact sensor is deployed from small plane and will be simply built-in with different distant sensing applied sciences for simultaneous assortment of a number of complementary datasets. For the Turks and Caicos venture, this strategy made it attainable to accumulate nearshore (bathymetry) and coastal (topography and imagery) knowledge in a single deployment, producing a cheap answer and advancing Fugro’s sustainability objectives by considerably lowering gas consumption.
Fugro is presently engaged on three further RAMMS initiatives within the Americas area, one for UKHO in Belize, and two for the Canadian Hydrographic Society (CHS), in Quebec and Atlantic Canada. These initiatives are related in scope to that of the Turks and Caicos venture, combining bathymetry, topography and imagery for optimum worth to shoppers, serving each navigation and coastal purposes.
