Bjørn Jalving, Senior Vice President Technology Kongsberg Maritime explains how the organization will support Seabed 2030 in its mission to produce the definitive map of the seafloor: “We envisage our systems for surveying, positioning and navigation to contribute rewardingly to this imperative global effort. We will specifically develop freely available functions to Kongsberg Maritime multibeam echo sounders, single beam echo sounders and AUVs that ease the process of contributing bathymetric data to the Seabed 2030 Data Centers. The development will be collaborative with the University of New Hampshire and Stockholm University.''
