A total of eight sea-technology companies from France will be exhibiting at the Ocean Business trade show as part of the French Pavilion (Stand T5), which is being organised with the backing of the French Trade Commission in the UK and UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency.
The French companies, from across the sector, will present their innovative products and advanced technological solutions in sea technology in order to reinforce their professional contacts with British partners and to provide mutually beneficial business opportunities.
Ocean Business 2013 is expected to attract 300 exhibitors and 4,000 visitors from over 50 countries across a dockside exhibition area that has tripled in size since 2011. Ocean Business is a hands-on exhibition incorporating presentations and on-water demonstrations and training sessions, with a wide range of networking opportunities for visitors and exhibitors.
Ocean Business is held every two years in Southampton, on the south coast of England, and is due to take place between 9 and 11 April of this year.

The company has recently worked on several offshore wind farms, tidal-wave turbines, and other wave-energy projects.
In Vivo will hold a demonstration centred on R&D innovation for marine-renewable-energy products on 9 April from 9.30am to 10.30am, in NMFD Meeting Room 1.
NKE Instrumentation provides solutions for in situ measurements. For the purpose of oceanography and challenging environments, NKE provides autonomous data loggers for the monitoring of physicochemical parameters in marine environments and for ultra-depth sediment monitoring, as well as radio-networked sensors embedded in fishing vessels. NKE also provides automated system networks for the monitoring of estuarine waters, instrumented buoys, and subsea observatories. Finally, NKE is a specialist in Provor, Arvor, Argo and specific profiling subsurface floats.
NKE will hold a demonstration of its profiling monitoring solutions on 11 April from 1.30pm to 2.30pm in the Student Centre (Room 121/11).
SBG SYSTEMS manufactures motion-sensing solutions. SBG is a leading supplier of miniature, high-performance and cost-effective MEMS-based Inertial Navigation Systems (INSs), which accept aiding sources from GPS/GNSS, DVL, USBL, etc. SBG's INSs are ideal for Sonar, Lidar and Buoy orientation and positioning, as well as ROV and AUV control, camera stabilization, antenna tracking, etc.
SBG will hold a demonstration as to how the MEMS INS provides accurate measurements and smart integration on 10 April from 3.00pm to 4.00pm in NMFD Meeting Room 1.
SEA TECH WEEK
SEA TECH WEEK is an international marine-science/technology event that will take place in Brest between 13 and 17 October 2014. The Brest Métropole Océane city council is organising the ninth consecutive SEA TECH WEEK. Brest, in Brittany (Western France), is setting a benchmark worldwide in the field of oceanographic research and marine technology, and has created an event that brings together, every two years, leading experts in various marine-related disciplines. In 2012, SEA TECH WEEK attracted 1,200 conference goers. SEA TECH WEEK is a partner organization of the Oceans Europe Conference: each partner entity holds its event in alternate years.
Subsea Tech specialises in a range of marine and underwater technology. Subsea Tech is an engineering company and an expert in underwater intervention-and-instrumentation systems. Subsea Tech markets a range of mini-ROVs, as well as remotely operated catamarans and underwater camera systems. The company can provide inspection services and bespoke equipment in the fields of wireless underwater communication, 3D real-time sonar image reconstruction, and long-range underwater robotics.

Cellulose obtained from wood has amazing material properties. Empa researchers are now equipping the biodegradable material with additional functionalities to produce implants for cartilage diseases using 3D printing.
It all starts with an ear. Empa researcher Michael Hausmann removes the object shaped like a human ear from the 3D printer and explains:
The phenomenon of so-called superlubricity is known, but so far the explanation at the atomic level has been missing: for example, how does extremely low friction occur in bearings? Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes IWM and IWS jointly deciphered a universal mechanism of superlubricity for certain diamond-like carbon layers in combination with organic lubricants. Based on this knowledge, it is now possible to formulate design rules for supra lubricating layer-lubricant combinations. The results are presented in an article in Nature Communications, volume 10.
One of the most important prerequisites for sustainable and environmentally friendly mobility is minimizing friction. Research and industry have been dedicated...
