    Fugro's Hugin 3000 Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), Echo Surveyor, completed commissioning and final acceptance tests on schedule at Kongsberg Maritime's base in Horton, Norway in the last week of January.

    Full sea trials were conducted near Horten-Indre Lanv, offshore South Norway through to early February, testing navigation, control and payload systems.

    Successful payload trials were performed on EM2000 and Edgetech Full spectrum integrated sidescan sonar and sub-bottom profiler.

    Echo Surveyor was tested as an integrated deep water survey package with Fugro's tried and tested survey vessel Geo Prospector acting as mother ship.
