MTR MTR 100 100marine mammals and Þ sheries. It was founded in 1990 as a consultancy in oceanographic instrumentation design. In the offshore energy sector, Aquatec caters to four key areas in the offshore energy sector: cathodic protection and monitoring, hydrotest, leak detection and Metocean. In the oceanographic and environ- mental markets, stand alone products include instruments to measure temper- ature and depth (with logging, near-real time or real time reporting), a compre-hensive range of suspended sediment loggers and proÞ lers (optical and acous- tic), and marine mammal deterrents for Þ shing and construction (targeted at porpoises, dolphins and similar toothed whales). Aquatec design custom prod- ucts and systems, and offer consultancy and rental services. In the research sector Aquatec main- tains strong links with universities and research institutions around the world, and is a prominent partner in collabora-tive research, complementing its inter- nal, market-led product research and development program.

Its systems allows diving companies to achieve depth monitoring required by the Norsok Standard U-103 (Section 8.4.2). Hyperbaric and Subsea Environments Data Acquisition Systems: Over the last 10 years, the team has designed several different types of monitoring systems for the Underwater and Hyperbaric In- dustry. It is capable of developing custom systems in a short period of time relat-ed to: Diving and Hyperbaric systems; Tunneling; Equipment performance test beds; Marine and Aquatic Biology. AX- SUB is a Manufacturer of Diving Equip- ment such as Digital Video Recorders, Low voltage LED Lamps, Underwater Cameras and Electronic Depthmeter. AXSUB is a distributor of: Amron In- ternational; NUVAIR (compressors & analyzers); Birns Aquamate (underwa- ter connectors); Northern Diver (diverÕs gears); Cygnus (Ultrasonic Thickness Gauges); and Subsalve (lift bags). The CompanyThe AXYS story began with marine consulting contracts to Environment Canada for wave studies in 1974 and was followed by the design of sev- eral marine technology devices in the 1980Õs that led to an opportunity to de- sign, manufacture, install and service CanadaÕs Marine Weather Buoy Net- work. In the early 1990Õs, AXYS began producing marine technologies in col-laboration with the National Research Council (NRC). Two of the main out- comes were the TRIAXYS directional wave buoy and the next generation WatchMan500 controller processor. The Tech The AXYS WindSentinel is reported by the company to be the worldÕs Þ rst wind resource assessment buoy capa- ble of accurately gathering wind data at turbine hub-height and across the blade span. The AXYS WatchMan500 controller was designed as the next generation of payload for marine sys-tems to provide desktop to sensor mon- itoring and control, including dynamic onboard control and data storage capa-bilities. This controller is a solution for any application requiring data moni- toring, collection, control, processing, or remote system management. AXYS now provides full data hosting and management services. These services range from receiving and hosting buoy data on a publicly displayed website, to sending detailed monthly reports on data throughput from buoys or other monitoring stations.
