Canada: Fugro is getting ready to conduct an Airborne LiDAR Bathymetry (ALB) survey in Eastern Canada. The company was assigned the task by Canadian Hydrographic Service (CHS). Fugro’s ALB system, SHOALS-1000T will be used to acquire hydrographic survey data and seabed imagery in shallow coastal waters, where it is inefficient, expensive and unsafe to acquire similar information using traditional vessel-based acoustic methods. The data will fill gaps in “shallow water” and junction with existing deeper water data that has been acquired previously by CHS vessels. All data will be acquired to International Hydrographic Organization (IHO) Order 1, an international standard for conducting hydrographic surveys, and will ultimately be used to update CHS’ nautical charts.
