The Institute of Marine Research Takes NI LabVIEW to the Bottom of the Ocean

The Institute of Marine Research uses NI LabVIEW to control the Deadzone Observer, an autonomouse unit capable of detecting fish populations on the ocean floor.

"To reduce power consumption, the LabVIEW control application turns off equipment when it is not in use. It also monitors the Observer for emergency situations."

- Atle Totland, Institute of Marine Research

The Challenge:
Detecting fish located close to the seabed with scientific echo sounders onboard research vessels.

The Solution:
Using NI LabVIEW system design software to control the Deadzone Observer, a highly accurate autonomous underwater vehicle that can detect fish located close to the sea bottom.
