Hydroid, Inc., a subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime and the leading manufacturer of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), today announced that it will sponsor the AUV Hydrographic Bootcamp, taking place August 3 - 8, 2014 at the University of New Hampshire’s Judd Gregg Marine Science Complex in New Castle, NH. The symposium will focus on developing new methods of AUV operations, data collection, processing and display.
The intensive six-day course is by invitation only, and will teach participants about the operational methods of AUVs to collect bathymetric data for the purposes of nautical charting and the data processing techniques required to create hydrographic-quality survey products. Designed for AUV operators, commercial software developers, engineers, researchers and graduate students, participants will have the ability to interact in a small group environment, both in the field in Portsmouth Harbor and ashore.
“Hydroid is proud to sponsor the AUV Hydrographic Bootcamp this year,” said Duane Fotheringham, president of Hydroid. “Participants are given the unique opportunity to experiment with AUVs and contribute to their advancement. AUVs have tremendous capabilities, and the Bootcamp will demonstrate their amazing applications to a new and eager audience.”
The course is a collaboration between The Coastal Sediments, Hydrodynamics and Engineering Laboratory (CSHEL) at the University of Delaware and The Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping (CCOM) at the University of New Hampshire. Hydroid and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of Coast Survey (NOAA) are co-sponsoring the event. NOAA will be operating a Hydroid REMUS 600 equipped with a Kongsberg EM3002 multibeam sonar.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
