people & companies offers the possibility of adding a third acoustic channel (X3) to the standard dual frequency (X2) configuration. All channels feature a robust design and frequency agility enabling the operator to precisely match the transceiver to almost any existing transducer. Operator selectable TVG curves (10 Log, 20 Log, 30 Log, 40 Log, and Off ) serve to optimize the MKIII for both shallow and deepwater bottom detection tasks and for Sonar imaging. The Echotrac CV features unsurpassed interfacing flexibility, offering 4 serial ports plus a high speed Ethernet LAN for maximum data collection efficiency. Serial interfaces for motion compensators and DGPS receivers are standard in the CV as are a number of output formats compatible with most common Echo Sounder strings.

The DP Reel is presently contracted to Total E&P Angola for IRM work on the Dalia Field and carries onboard 2 deepwater work-class ROV systems. lated oil spill recovery operation. This task was achieved through the use of clay balls placed on the bottom of the lake that were then retrieved with a suction hose attached to the DOV that carried the material to the surface and deposited it onto a vessel. DOV Participates in Oil Recovery, Dam Inspection Simulations Tyco Telecommunications to Charter CS Teneo Tyco Telecommunications chartered the CS Teneo to U.K.-based Offshore Hydrocarbon Mapping (OHM) for five months, with extension options. The CS Teneo will function as the support platform for a number of Controlled Source Electromagnetic (CSEM) surveys being conducted by OHM in North West Europe, West Africa and the Falkland Islands. "The oil and gas industry relies on CSEM surveying, a remote sensing tool, to map subsurface geology for hydrocarbon detection, and the CS Teneo is perfectly equipped for our needs," said Jon Nicholls, operations manager of OHM. "Tyco Telecommunications' vessels are ideally suited for the deployment of our equipment and the crews are highly experienced in the type of recovery operations we require." The Spanish registered CS Teneo, a versatile 80-m vessel, forms part of a fleet of specialized vessels and sub-sea equipment owned and operated by Tyco Telecommunications which also includes six 140-m Reliance Class vessels.

The Normand Cutter, the flagship of the Sonsub fleet, has recently proven its worth by completing some of the most challenging subsea construction projects, such as Ormen Lange and Skinfaks/Rimfaks in the Norwegian North Sea and is presently mobilizing for the BP Nakika Umbilical to be laid in deep waters Gulf of Mexico. 52 MTR Deep Marine Technology's DeepWorker 2000 Direct Operated Vehicles (DOV) recently participated in, and successfully completed, oil spill recovery and dam inspection task simulations for Marine Pollution Control (MPC) and the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA), respectively. Conducting the work at Lake Travis in Austin, TX, DMT's first task was to demonstrate the ability to effectively integrate DMT and MPC's technologies by interfacing MPC's Submersible Work Unit equipment with the DOV and perform a simu-
