Aquatec Group introduces a new service for the AQUAscat to help new and existing customers make the most of their instruments, and optimize data collection and analysis. Aquatec Expert provides advice and guidance at both the pre and post deployment stages, as well as data analysis and reporting services.
For surveyors and consultants, the complete Aquatec Expert service allows the AQUAscat suspended sediment profilers to be used confidently and efficiently, in order to enhance the sediment monitoring and understanding of an area. For researchers, the service can provide a solid baseline understanding of the instrumentation to aid future research. Aquatec Expert is also available for customers renting AQUAscat instruments.
Three service levels are available: gold, silver and bronze. Bronze level Aquatec Expert features a personal consultation to discuss the deployment in detail and pre-deployment advice comprising performance capability predictions and recommended instrument configurations. The silver tier adds a post deployment report, including a critical analysis of the gathered data, hand-tuned inversions and a processed dataset. Gold Aquatec Expert offers silver level service for two deployments within a 12 month period.
Elizabeth Paull, Sales & Marketing Manager, said ‘The introduction of Aquatec Expert for the AQUAscat instrumentation range allows those unfamiliar with acoustic sediment profiling to access the wealth of knowledge that can be gained by adding these instruments to projects, including dredge monitoring operations and construction works.’
