AAM vessels are designed to reach the work site quickly, without crew fatigue, and provide a sta- ble platform to ensure safe and accurate data collection.The hull form of AAM?s research and survey vessels is a semi-planing type catamaran hull that employs a combina- tion of symmetrical and asymmetrical sponson shapes, combining the attri-butes of both shapes in one hull. The symmetrical bow-section ensures direc- tional stability in short swell conditions and following seas, while the asymmet- rical amidships and aft sections ensure softness of ride and reduced wetted area which enhances comfort and economy. The catamaran hull has a high tunnel ceiling with a large opening between the sponsons, which allows free move- ment of wind-waves without slamming on the wet-deck. Also, horizontal steps on the inside of the tunnel walls act both as chines to de ect green water from the hull surface, and to break up the solid water into spray. The combined effect of these features produces a hull with low resistance, low vertical accelerations, and excellent performance.

Ap- planix designs, builds, delivers, and supports a complete portfolio of prod-ucts and solutions for the hydrographic survey industry. The Tech Applanix? POS (Position and Orienta- tion System) technology was originally developed and rigorously tested as part of an extensive military project. This proven technology has been enhanced, customized and packaged to yield an off- the-shelf commercial product, uniquely suited to the requirements of precision marine motion sensing, hydrographic surveying and charting called the POS MV. POS MV is a user-friendly, turnkey system designed and built to provide ac- curate position, heading, attitude, heave, and velocity data of your marine vessel and remote sensing equipment. With over one thousand systems deployed worldwide, POS MV is  eld-tested and proven in all conditions. POS MV blends GNSS data with angular rate and acceleration data from an IMU, and heading from GPS Azimuth Measure- ment System (GAMS) to produce a robust and accurate full six degrees-of- freedom position and orientation solu-tion. POS MV comes in 3 models: POS MV WaveMaster  POS MV 320  POS MV ElitePOS MV 320 and POS MV WaveMas- ter are designed for use with multibeam sonar systems, enabling adherence to IHO (International Hydrographic Sur- vey) standards on sonar swath widths of greater than ± 75 degrees under all dynamic conditions. POS MV Elite of-fers users the highest degree of accuracy in motion measurement for their marine applications.
