The British Institute of NDT is the professional institute for all those engaged in non-destructive testing and condition monitoring. It is concerned with the education and training of its members, and the advancement of the science and practice of the subject.... More

Over its 50 years, the Institute has established itself as one of the country's leading engineering institutions, and has achieved Nominated Body status with the Engineering Council.

The object of the Institute is to promote and advance the science and practice of non-destructive testing, condition monitoring, diagnostic engineering and all other materials and quality testing disciplines. In achieving this aim, the Institute, which employs a permanent Secretariat at its Northampton headquarters, relies on the support of personnel, companies and other organisations in the NDT industry.

The individual expertise of the members adds up to an immense body of knowledge and expertise, and the Institute organises its work to obtain maximum benefit from this powerful resource.

In the UK and Europe, the Institute is influential in legislative circles, having input to the content of engineering and environment legislation. As chairman of the EC/EFTA Working Group, it is leading the way towards standardisation throughout the whole of Europe - not just the European Community and EFTA countries, but including eastern European countries as well.
The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) is a leading trade association representing the vast majority of contractors and the associated supply chain in the offshore marine construction industry worldwide. We have a membership of over 900 companies including contractors, suppliers, oil & gas companies, marine renewable energy companies ... Moreand numerous non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

IMCA was formed in 1995 through the merger of the former Association of Offshore Diving Contractors (AODC, formed in 1972) and the Dynamically Positioned Vessel Owners Association (DPVOA, formed in 1989). Consequently, our operational roots and technical credentials are second to none in our industry.

Our mission is to improve performance in the marine contracting industry. We achieve this by leveraging the expertise of our members through conferences, seminars and meetings, and in publishing leading standards of technical and operating guidance in key areas of safety, quality, and offshore performance. In addition, we represent our members in dialogue with other industry bodies, regulators, oil companies and renewable energy companies. IMCA holds consultative status at the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and is very active in international regulatory and policy matters in the upstream industry.

Product Goals:
The company goal is to create an outstanding product that follows four (4) basic guidelines:

Capability – "The ability necessary to do something"
LBV must be capable of real work in real environments. To accomplish this it must have powerful thrusters, small diameter tether, adequate depth capability, large range of view and be a flexible platform for options.

Intuitive – "Known directly and instinctively, without being discovered or consciously perceived"
LBV must be simple to operate even to the most novice of operators. To accomplish this the controls must be simple, it must have auto functions, it must have an on screen information display and user programmable options.

Rugged – "Physically strong enough to endure harsh conditions, or used to enduring them"
LBV must be rugged enough to withstand the harsh environments in which it will be operated. To accomplish this it must be constructed of durable materials, possess several safety circuits and have easily field serviced components.

Value – "The worth, importance, or usefulness of something to somebody"
By combining capability, intuitiveness, ruggedness and affordability the LBV is an exceptional value to the user.

LBV has become a success through the efforts not only of SeaBotix but those of the users. A cooperative effort including valuable feedback has created such a useful and powerful tool. Read through the website and find out why LBV is such an exceptional product.
