The part- nership will deliver advanced automation of dynamic positioning (DP) systems to enable: improvement of DP operational safety through real-time advisory tools for bridge operators and remote support for onshore teams; streamlining of onboard organization leading to poten- tial reduction of manning; and a reduction in fuel and DP maintenance costs. A pilot test has been implemented in Trinidad waters. High-Res Laser Scan, Drone IMU Combo iXblue and Newton Labs have conducted demon- strations and tests of advanced integration technology between their systems to supply high-resolution laser scanning coupled with an IMU in ROV/AUV service. The companies first demonstrated the ability of the combi- nation to operate in conjunction with industry standard navigation software. They then also proved the ability of the Newton scanners to work with the full data set from the iXblue Phins IMU to adjust the Newton laser scans for heading, pitch and roll independent of other software. Simwave Maritime Center Of Excellence Opens Simwave B.V. and Kongsberg Digital have successful- ly completed the site acceptance test for the Simwave Maritime Center of Excellence. The Barendrecht, Rotter- dam facility in the Netherlands is now fully operational. Simwave's training facility covers more than 5,000 m 2 across two floors containing Kongsberg simulators, meet- ing rooms, offices and welfare facilities. The next step is to develop a hotel facility on the top floor of the build- ing for customers and trainees, enabling training to take place 24/7.
