    They sought a drowned and found another body

    They believe that this is a missing man in 2007.

    BARILOCHE- The remains of a man, reportedly drowned in 2007, were found yesterday by a underwater Rov (Remotely Operated Vehicle), hired by Maximiliano’s family to find the young from Neuquen disappeared in Lake Moreno on February 18th. Late yesterday, the Prefecture staff and company, found the hauled body which was submerged to 52 meters.

    The finding was conducted by two rescuers who used a rov prepared for such work. The body was in horizontal position and waist had "the skirt" of the kayak, as told to "Black River" Juan Manuel Casal, one of the technicians in charge of the rov. The body was about 100 meters from the municipal beach on the east bank of Lake Moreno. Prefecture staff was notified immediately of the discovery and began operating the lift.

    From the description of the body found and the site, there was speculation that it would be Nicholas Klaus Hardt, disappeared in October 2007. (See separate article).

    The search for Maximilian Colantonio started the same February 18th, just hours after his disappearance. A task was added in recent days, a tracking team from the company "Mariscope", which was hired by the 28-year-old man's father, Hugo Colantonio.

    Mariscope Meerestechnik Introduces New Underwater Camera

    Following the requirements of the European armed forces, Mariscope Meerestechnik, located in Kiel (Germany) introduced what is reportedly the first system worldwide that allows the variation of underwater camera illumination. For certain kinds of appliances, especially for the Explosive Ordnance Disposal, it is necessary to illuminate objects with an illumination that does not only emit white light. In the past, underwater illumination standards were used and filters had to be added to the cameras to achieve this objective. Mariscope Meerestechnik however developed a new system of underwater illumination that adds to the line of their professional underwater cameras.

    The system allows controlling the variation of colors of the underwater light from the surface. Starting with the colors red, green, blue and white, it is possible to mix any color in the visible range to obtain extraordinary results, especially for underwater film making.

    The system is based on advanced technology of high output LEDs, developed recently by the company itself in Germany.

    Robot submarino busca el cuerpo de un joven en el lago Traful

    VILLA TRAFUL.- Un robot submarino diseñado en Chile busca en la profundidad del lago Traful, en la provincia de Neuquén, el cuerpo de un joven que desapareció en diciembre pasado cuando se hundió la embarcación en la que viajaba. Ayer fue el primer día con un intenso rastrillaje en el lugar del siniestro donde hallaron elementos personales y del bote pero no hay rastros del joven.

    Daniel Pérez, un joven de 25 años oriundo de San Martín de los Andes que naufragó junto a dos amigos cuando su bote se hundió por un desperfecto técnico, es el único que a un mes de la tragedia sigue desaparecido, por eso con tecnología provista por la empresa chilena Mariscope dedicada a la robótica submarina se inició ayer la búsqueda.

    "Durante 12 horas rastrillamos el lugar del hundimiento, encontramos una zapatilla de uno de los chicos que fue hallado a pocos días de la tragedia y elementos personales y del bote pero no la embarcación ni el cuerpo cuestión que nos tiene desconcertados", dijo a lanacion.com Guillermo Pellini, secretario de Seguridad de la Provincia de Neuquén a cargo del operativo.

    La zona de búsqueda se centró ayer a unos 9 kilómetros del muelle de la localidad de Villa Traful, en el acceso al brazo Norte del lago donde se utilizaron tres patrones de rastrillaje en un área de 2 kilómetros y a una profundidad de 100 metros, sin resultados hasta el momento.

    El operativo liderado por el titular de Seguridad cuenta con una embarcación de Aduana traída del paso internacional Hua Hum en San Martín de los Andes que transporta el robot submarino y dos técnicos de la empresa chilena. El dispositivo posee una forma similar a un bastidor donde tiene incorporadas cámaras de filmación y luces de alta potencia para poder visualizar en la profundidad de las aguas, y es comandado desde la superficie donde los técnicos analizan el fondo del lago a través de las imágenes provistas por el robot.

    Además colabora Defensa Civil de San Martín de los Andes y Prefectura Naval Argentina que asiste en la seguridad costera con dos embarcaciones y provee de buzos especializados en caso de detectar el cuerpo del joven.

    Pellini afirmó que se encuentran "desconcertados" por no hallar ni siquiera la embarcación y señaló que una de las hipótesis es que "puede haberle quedado aire en el casco del bote ya que se hundió de popa y esto hizo que derive con el viento en dirección hacia el Este".

    Con esta hipótesis esta mañana al amanecer se retomó el operativo de búsqueda en la misma zona que fue identificada ayer por David Paichil (23) el único sobreviviente del accidente quien al momento del hundimiento pudo nadar hasta la costa Norte y caminar más de 10 horas hasta dar aviso a un poblador, mientras que el segundo tripulante Dalmiro Lagos (22) fue hallado muerto a 25 metros de profundidad a los dos días del accidente.

    El naufragio se produjo el 12 de diciembre pasado por un desperfecto en el bote en que navegaban los tres jóvenes y a partir de allí Prefectura encabezó la búsqueda por 10 días hallando sólo a uno de los dos jóvenes desaparecidos. Ahora ante el reclamo de la familia de Daniel, el Gobierno dispuso el operativo contratando por cuatro días a la empresa chilena que provee de la tecnología necesaria para buscar en profundidades donde los buzos no pueden llegar.

    El año pasado con un dispositivo similar se halló a un joven desaparecido en las aguas de un lago chileno y en esta región sólo existe un antecedente en 2006 cuando se trajo un robot submarino para buscar a un turista estadounidense que se hundió en la embarcación "Terapia" en el lago Nahuel Huapi, frente a puerto Pañuelo. La búsqueda fue solventada por la familia del turista desaparecido y permitió dar con la embarcación sumergida en el fondo del lago pero nunca se halló el cuerpo

    Risk map summer sea temperature anticipate risks in aquaculture centers

    According to data collected by satellites in earth observation the temperature in some coastal areas of the Lake District reaches more than 18 ° C at the sea surface (World Aquaculture).

    The company has produced the first Mariscope risk map of the summer season of 2011-2012 sea surface temperature in southern Chile. According to data collected by satellites observing the earth the temperature in some coastal areas of the Lake District reaches more than 18 ° C at the sea surface.

    More protected areas and less the mass exchange of water as the inlet temperature Comau recorded over 19 ° C. This is because the predominantly anticyclonic conditions recorded during the past weeks.

    This information, combined with those sensors that collect this parameter in situ, such as those taken by the instrument oxybox operating in the area, to compare the surface conditions and other levels of the water column to anticipate events that may damage the animal production.

    "Thus, we have developed specific products on the evolution of oceanographic parameters critical for the aquaculture industry of the Lake District and establishes a classification of areas according to environmental criteria, which may in the future, define new neighborhoods in the legislation aquaculture operations in the country, "said Cristina Rodriguez, a researcher at Mariscope.

    Mariscope introduced new underwater positioning system.

    Expanding its range of products and services, the company introduced a new system Mariscope positioning submarine. These models, known internationally as a systems USBL (Ultra Short Baseline, for its acronym in English), are based on an acoustic system to locate the position of objects, ROVs, divers, among others.

    "Given that electromagnetic waves are not transmitted underwater acoustic localization is the most effective method to position underwater objects," he said to AQUA Mariscope CEO, Christian Haag.

    With these systems coupled with their units ROVs, locate them Mariscope provides geo-referenced objects gleaning, for example, in the case of objects sunk in the vicinity of the cages of aquaculture production. "This will make possible a safe and efficient recovery of these elements," said Haag.

    Another important application is in finding missing persons. So far searches were carried out at random or in the best case with systematic searches that require significant time and high costs.

    "In Mariscope, the combination of USBL positioning systems combined with horizontal scan sonar, enable searches were carried out in minimum time and with amazing results," said the general manager of the company.
