IMG 1673On Friday 11th December, after some strong winds and rain, Arnaud and I visited the Sea-Fi installation on Spike Island, a small island at the center of Cork Harbour. Although it is only a short distance from the Sea-Tech office in Ringaskiddy (less than two kilometers in a straight line) we had to take two boat trips to get there. First we drove to Cobh via the cross-river ferry. Then having checked all our tools, test equipment, and spare parts, as possible replacements on the installation, we took the passenger ferry from Cobh to Spike Island. Before we

Last week SEA-Tech conducted an advanced workshop on Network Video Surveillance in France. HiPerLAN and video surveillance have been one of SEA-Tech's most prominent work for the past few years. Delivering high definition images over long distances on land and at sea. On the photo above our colleague Willy Larsonnier is pictured configuring ICRealtime PTZ camera in Chambly. The camera is located at the top of a bell tower and the surveillance control station was setup for the occasion on a stage in support of a charity (Telethon). Over the course of two days we have learnt a great deal

My name is Jorge, and I have recently begun my telecommunications internship with Sea-Tech. As a Spanish student, my aim is to improve my english as well as my telecommunications knowledge. I will be writing articles for the techno-blog, charting my progress and experiences, both technical and non-technical. Having started two weeks ago, it has been an intense learning process for me, covering a wide variety of technical and life skills. As part of my introduction to the work of Sea-Tech, I accompanied the Chief Technical Officer, and internship director, Arnaud Disant on a visit to the Port of Cork

SEA-TEch has a special interest for tugs. Unlike other ships their mighty engine power allow other ships out of port and sometime out of trouble too. They generate large amount of information and can supply the research community with real time data.  The Nikolay Chiker below is presented on youtube towing the aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov in stormy weather somewhere off the bay of Biscay in February 2012. This video had been availlable on the Russian social media but was only recently posted on youtube. We chose it as a way to illustrate the terms ICT in hostile environement during

jeo in ringaskiddyWhat a week, for the past few days, Jorge and Arnaud have worked non stop in Ringaskiddy deep water berths on our SeaFi Dockside station. It's always impressive to work near a containership. Did you know that sea-based transport are accounted for 99% of the total volume (45 million tonnes) and 95% of the total value (€128 billion) of the goods traded (imports/exports) in Ireland. It is hard to imagine that the 55 meters cranes buzzing above our heads, all week, are such vital contributors of the Irish economy.

Who are ETO on ship? If you are a frequent flyer on SEA-Tech's technoblog this question will certainly not strike a chord. But if you are just passing by, maybe I will convince you to stay a little longer on our website...

By now many of us know that Ship's Engineers are responsible for operating the propulsion plants and support systems on board crew, passengers and cargo seafaring vessels or other watercraft. But who are ETO's?

On a ship people belong to the below deck or the above deck (deckies) familly. Yet there is a caste of

SEA-Tech's expertise helps system integration, an IP camera, a remote weather station, emails, etc are only valuable to us if we can reach them from a distant place... Who would need a weather station to know the weather above his head?

SEA-Tech's engineers are about to end a new HiPerLAN feasibility study. In the next few month we will be deploying another large High Performance Radio LAN (HiPerLAN) in France this time... For our team on the field it's the end of a long summer spent climbing water towers and burning roof tops, making radiometric tests, assessing line of sight

Only three cables but if one goes funny the whole ship goes wrong. In this case the chart table repeater was showing attitude and the whole instalation showed the STLK screen of death. Thanks Raymarine for the error code, and safe trip to RLJ on route to the Wesht as we call the west of Ireland
