56 st / June 2017 LiFT Battery System To Power Portable UUV General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) has been awarded a contract to provide its Lithium-ion Fault Tolerant (LiFT) battery system for the Semi-Autonomous Hydrographic Reconnaissance Vehicle (SAHRV), a small, portable UUV. GA-EMS is part of a team working with the Department of Defense to de- sign, fabricate, deliver and conduct at- sea testing of the LiFT battery system for use on the SAHRV platform. The SAHRV UUV is intended for shallow- water surveillance to scan, detect and identify mines and other obstacles. Hydrographic Production Database Now in Use in Sweden Teledyne CARIS's Hydrographic Production Database (HPD) has been successfully implemented as the Swed- ish Maritime Administration (SMA) production system. This replaces the previously used legacy software em- ployed by SMA for the management of spatial data. HPD supports the creation of paper and electronic charts, special publications and data services, and has been customized to meet SMA's spe- cial requirements and workflow needs. The project, known as CHAMPS, included system customization and development, existing data and prod- uct migration, and training of SMA's project team and end-users. Kongsberg Digital Partners with Simwave for Maritime Training Kongsberg Digital and Simwave B.V. have formed a strategic partnership re- sulting in a contract for one of the most extensive Kongsberg Maritime simu- lator deliveries to date. Simwave is a new Maritime Centre of Excellence in the Netherlands that will offer training and fair assessment procedures next to advanced and specialized applied research. Simwave has chosen Kongs- berg as its sole simulation technology supplier and partner for the develop- ment of a facility designed to deliver maritime simulation as a service, with a pay-as-you-go foundation. The part- nership will also include development of new innovative maritime training so- lutions on Kongsberg's newly launched digital open ecosystem, Kognifai. Hybrid Approach To Big Data Management BMT Scientific Marine Services has launched its Data Exploration and An- alytics Platform for Actionable Insights (DEAP-AI), an initiative driven by more than 20 years' experience of measur- ing and modeling data for the global oil and gas industry. DEAP-AI is an in- telligent studio capable of processing large and small data sets using a rich set of processing libraries. The solution was developed with support from the IT company Capgemini and hosted by the cloud service provider Amazon Web Services (AWS). DEAP-AI is pow- ered by a distributed computing en- gine, which can process large batches of data and stream real-time data.
