Our COTS (commercial off the shelf technology) approach to military requirements ensures some of the very best sensor technology available to measure speed of sound, temperature, depth, conductivity, salinity and density on both surface vessels and submarines. Valeport equipment in both standard and bespoke formats is in regular operational use by many Navies worldwide. Standard equipment can be re-packaged to suit your needs and replace legacy equipment.
Research programmes demand both technology and affordable products to cover studies from rivers to full ocean depth. Valeport have gained significant knowledge through close collaboration with some of the worlds leading institutes. A clear example of this is our CTD sensor fitted to the seal tags of the Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU) of St Andrews University, Scotland as they monitor marine mammal behaviour within their oceanic environment, by obtaining oceanographic quality CTD casts.
Meeting the demands of small ROV’s to work class vehicles in the offshore oil & gas industry, Valeport have a range of sensors and probes to measure the physical parameters vital to safe operation. From sensors to aid operation of the vehicle to probes for data input into metrology and construction operations, our “industry standard” packages are designed and built to perform.
AUV requirements can mean provision of complete housed instruments or OEM style for users own interface. Our...
Low flow groundwater sampling is a methodology used around the world to simulate ambient flow conditions and take water quality readings. A wide variety of pumps are used to draw a sample from the well such as bladder, inertial or peristaltic pumps and usually combined with a flow controller. Once the sampling methodology for your site has been selected, then choosing the right multi-parameter probe is vital.
Measurement of water quality in coastal regions and estuaries is critical in the characterization of hypoxic ‘dead zones’ as a result of nutrient loading and algal blooms in the water bodies. Sediment loading analysis through turbidity measurement is also important for coastal trend identification and modeling. Hydrolab and Sea-bird Coastal offer a variety of multiparameter water quality instrumentation and nutrient sensors for long-term coastal applications.
