Climate Change widespread, rapid, and intensifying according to IPCC

Scientists are observing changes in the Earth’s climate in every region and across the whole climate system, according to the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report. Many of the changes observed in the climate are unprecedented in thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of years, and some of the changes already set in motion – such as continued sea level rise – are irreversible over hundreds to thousands of years.

Fugro answers Geo-data Needs in Remote coastal Locations with new uncrewed Capability


Fugro RAMMS, the world’s smallest and lightest ‘deepwater’ airborne lidar bathymetry (ALB) system, can now be deployed from vessels of opportunity using a Schiebel CAMCOPTER® S-100 uncrewed aerial system (UAS).

The specialised UAS incorporates vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) technology, making it an ideal nearshore and coastal mapping solution in areas that lack aviation infrastructure. Fugro technology partner and RAMMS co-developer Areté Associates proved the capability during a recent demonstration project for the US Navy in Florida. Fugro supported that effort, acquiring vessel-based bathymetry over the test site for validation of the field trial data.

In addition to extended geographic reach, the RAMMS/CAMCOPTER S-100 solution provides significant sustainability gains. With low fuel consumption, high in-air endurance and rapid rate of data collection, the new approach reduces carbon emissions by 98 % compared to large, legacy ALB systems. Other important benefits include reduced operational risk by eliminating the need for flight crew, and improved feature detection with no limits on data resolution given the system’s ability to hover over areas of interest. The RAMMS/CAMCOPTER S-100 solution is also well suited for mapping waters in high-relief areas, like canyons and fjords, where crewed, fixed-wing operations can be both difficult and dangerous.

“The ability to safely and efficiently map remote areas of the world is critical to managing the impacts of climate change and sea level rise,” said Mark MacDonald, Hydrography Director for Fugro in the Americas. “We’ve had a lot of success using RAMMS to address nearshore and coastal mapping needs in places that can support traditional airborne operations and we are thrilled to now have a truly global solution that can access more remote and challenging locations with a high degree of accuracy and in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.”
