Senior Project Manager

Following the acquisition of Geonav by ETS in 2006, I continued to lead the development of new products and to provide system solutions to our clients on a custom basis. Typical projects included.

* Vessel Position Monitor
This system was developed for a North Sea Client to blend several positioning sensors and heading sensor to allow navigation close to platforms.
Sensor blending was designed to closely follow DP models.

* I-Compass
This product is an integration of GPS and Fiber Optic Gyrocompass, to boost GPS heading sensor performance such that it can be use for survey applications.

* VSP Positioning
This system has components on both the rig and the shooting boat connected by Ethernet Wireless. Both systems were adapted from the basic EZNav software.

During this period he developed a navigation toolkit to run under Microsoft Windows. He has used the toolkit to develop products for both Geonav and its clients. Among the products are :-

* A Positioning Devices Simulator.
This system was developed for testing the positioning functions of the Integrated Mine sweeping System. It has since been enhanced and supplied to other Geonav clients.

* The ELESCO SSCPU Integrated mine sweeping system.
This system, operating under Windows, combines positioning control, sweep generation, and sweep coverage, for magnetic ( electrode sweep ), acoustic and mechanical ( wire ) sweeps. Versions of the system are in service with both the Finnish and Swedish navies.

* The GEOPROS HTS Hydrostatic borehole logging system.
Although not a positioning system, it utilises many of the basic Navtools routines for the hydrostatic testing of possible burial sites for nuclear waste.

* The BargeMaster Semi-submersible Drilling Rig System.
To demonstrate the Navtools product to potential non-military customers, the BargerMaster package was developed. It has be distributed to potential customers in the US and Europe.

* The Chart Channel - Information System for Cruise Ships
The Chart Channel is an information system for cruise ships based on GPS and digital chart technology. Ship's position and other relevant information is presented to the passengers on the ship's internal TV network, and large screen displays in the public areas.

* SSC 01 – Serial Shot Controller
A microprocessor controller unit to aid precision distance based fixing from a Windows environment, and provide multiple controllable, relay outputs.

* KCO Seis Software
A complete shots / pops high-resolution seismic software package for Gulf of Mexico survey company KC Offshore.

* KCO Construction Software
A pipelay / construction software package for KC Offshore

* SP 2000 Fiber Optic Compass
A north seeking Fiber Optic Compass based on the LITEF LFK 95 sensor.
