On the screens of the control room from left to right: digital nautical charts that show our relative position; data acquisition screens from the EK60 and sub-bottom profiler sonars; multibeam data processing in CARIS. At the top of the image is the UTC time and the data acquisition screen from the EM302 multibeam sonar. You can also see the RTS intercom units that we use to communicate throughout the ship and with shore underneath the computer screens.
