All aboard for Pyxis demo at Ocean Business 2023

With a long career in technical sales, marketing and management, Gavin joined applied acoustics as sales manager in 2004. Committed to delivering the best possible customer service, he has overseen the company’s international growth alongside Adam, culminating in two Queen’s Awards for exporting achievement.

Wow, what a week! The aae team has just completed a highly successful three-day exhibitors’ stint at Ocean Business, which took place in Southampton, UK, on 18 – 20th April. 

Described as the global meeting place for ocean science and technology professionals, we’re regular attendees at Ocean Business. It’s a hugely enjoyable and beneficial occasion where we get to connect with like minds and enhance our knowledge of what’s happening in the industry for the benefit of clients.

Day one got off to a great start with attendees queuing ahead of the official opening time, an eagerness which set the tone for the rest of the event. The aae team enjoyed talking to a steady stream of customers, who had been recommended to visit our stand to talk to us in detail about our equipment and to discuss industry news. 

As you can see, our stand looked great – but it was the opportunity to jump aboard Solent Guardian, moored nearby, that had people excited to get on board and to watch our subsea tracking in action!

The vessel, kindly provided by Briggs Marine, a market leading provider of marine and environmental services, was mobilised with applied acoustics INS + USBL positioning system, Pyxis. Once safely onboard, attendees were treated to an hour-long practical demonstration of the technology which offers highly accurate subsea tracking with survey grade performance.

Also onboard was Klein – A MIND Technology Business, who hosted their official launch of the 4K-UHR side scan sonar. 

Paul Griffiths, aae’s Business Development Manager (Acoustic Positioning), commented:

“Ocean Business is always a great way to connect with existing customers and friends, while meeting new ones at the same time.  We were delighted to have so many bookings for our demo over both days and to showcase Pyxis to potential customers.”

“At the same time, customers have been reporting back just how happy they are with using the Pyxis system in very challenging conditions. Thank you to everyone who came to see us – we look forward to talking with you again soon.”
