Cyprus Subsea team has over ten years of glider operation experience with more than 20 launches and successful recoveries representing several glider-years and tens of thousands of profiles – all without losing a single unit.
Our collective experience with local and international scientific research, engineering marine projects and seagoing experience makes CSCS a unique company in the region and worldwide.
The SMART Cable is a programmable cable assembly intelligently connecting a marine sensor to a platform. This innovative cable consists of an ultra-lowpower electronics circuit embedded between each end, allowing several functionalities and data processing capacity for input and/or output data.
CSCS is contributing to advanced Sea Traffic Management systems by providing expertise for the development of efficient port management tools and innovative monitoring and forecasting systems for reducing the risk and impact of accidents.
BRIDGES aims for the development of new underwater platforms, deep (2400 m) and ultra-deep (5000 m) gliders. Several technical achievements must be made in order to produce these platforms. The project addresses market needs that the gliders could fulfill because gliders have been used commercially in the fields of environmental monitoring, oil and gas, and deep sea mining.
This study was carried out by Advanced Offshore Operations, a subsidiary of CSCS. We designed and carried out an underwater glider mission plan along the shelf break in the mid-Atlantic bight. A Seaglider (Kongsberg Underwater Technology Inc.) was used with an integrated passive monitoring system in order to detect vocalizations of Right whales. For more information, please contact Dr. Doug Nowacek at Duke University, the principle investigator of the project.
This project measured currents, waves, and turbidity of a site near Paphos, Cyprus for a duration of 6 months. High accuracy tidal levels were also measured in the Port of Paphos. While similar studies have been conducted in the past in other regions of Cyprus, these data sets provide calibration and validation with near coastal models for planning and permitting procedures, in addition to baseline values of turbidity. We used an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler with pressure sensor and wave capabilities.
