For oceanographic and ocean observatories KONGSBERG uses special set-ups to cover a variety of projects in the category of research, metocean, marine life, fishery research and aquaculture (sea farming).
Commonly used sensors are echo sounders, sonars, hydrophones and oceanographic sensors like Salinity, Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler - ADCP and Conductivity Temperature Depth - CTD instrument. In these
applications we use both wireless and cable communications solutions. Sensor carriers may be subsea sensor nodes, surface vessels, AUVs or gliders depending on the application.
