The CE 560 Hydrographic Surveying class from Oregon State University were hosted by Measutronics for on-water demonstrations of a fully equipped survey vessel earlier this summer. The class consisted of both undergraduate and graduate students that got to see high resolution multibeam data acquisition in real-time. Many topics that are covered in the course were on display, including: transducer transmit and receive arrays, GNSS antenna and IMU installation, lever arms, and patch tests. This type of on-hands demonstration enables students to gain a deeper understanding of the system as abstract ideas are put in to practice.
Measutronics has a strong commitment to furthering education in hydrographic surveying and other marine systems applications, and is a long standing supporter of The Hydrographic Society of America (THSOA). With their newest office being located in the Pacific Northwest, Measutronics hopes to continue to host more groups like this in the future.
