Our marine data management system the MDM 500 is a Windows based system for storage
and distribution of data from instruments normally found on board oceanographic
Connected instruments may include
- Navigation systems
- Weather sensors
- Sound propagation sensors
- Hydrographic instruments
The MDM 500 collects data from connected instruments and sensors, and optionally
stores them in a relational database. All instruments are connected directly to
the MDM 500 via dedicated drivers.
Distribution using the marine data management system
Data may be distributed to other instruments or computers on board. An example
is the exact time received from the GPS-system which is distributed to all PCs and
all other instruments that need time data. Likewise, position data from the GPS
are distributed to wherever they are needed.
Data logging facilities
The operator may select which instrument to log data from and at what sampling
rate. All data from instruments without a logging facility are logged. From instruments
with their own logging facility, only a very thinned data set is logged.
The MDM 500 Marine data management system will also work as a Cruise Recorder,
collecting and storing predefined navigational and environmental data during the
Standard or customized reports
The MDM 500 provides a selection of either alphanumerical or graphical data for
on-line display. Reports based on the data stored in the database can be generated,
either as standard or customized reports via an ODBC protocol interface.
