Examples of the use of real-time software on non-French fleets

The National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in the UK has acquired the rights of use for TECHSAS software as part of the modernisation of on-board data acquisition tools for RV James Cook, RV Discovery and the ISIS deep-water ROV.


In 2009, the NIOZ (Nederlands Instituut voor Onderzoek der Zee) in the Netherlands acquired TECHSAS, SDIV+ and CASINO+ for the 66m-long RV Pelagia (built in 1991). NIOZ compared Ifremer’s offer and that of German company Werum (DAVIS-Ship products for acquisition and PERPLEX products for assignment planning) before finally choosing NSE software products. The contract included the transfer of TECHSAS source code, enabling NIOZ to perform its own upgrades.


In 2008, TECHSAS, SDIV+, SUMATRA and CASINO+ software was installed on RV Southern Surveyor, avessel belonging to the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).


In 2012, a contract was signed with the Australian Antarctic Division (AAD) for the supply and installation of the TECHSAS acquisition system and SDVIV on board the Aurora Australis.
