General 3D Imaging and Monitoring

Dependable Tools for Real-Time Monitoring

In a number of subsea marine industries, the real-time monitoring of dynamic operations underwater is a necessity. Our real-time 3D volumetric sonar, the Echoscope®, is capable of providing a live, 3D volumetric image of the subsea environment even in zero visibility waters.

By generating over 16,000 beams per acoustic transmission and with a frame rate of up to 20 pings per second, the Echoscope range of sonars can “see”, position objects, and map the underwater scene in real-time, providing unique 3D acoustic movie imagery.

Unlike a standard multibeam, the real-time 3D volumetric Echoscope does not need a moving vessel to instantly visualize both moving and static objects underwater. By adding a MOTION GPS positioning sensor, the Echoscope and complementary CodaOctopus® Underwater Survey Explorer (USE) visualization software can create constantly displayed geo-referenced images as data is collected.

With the integration of our Integrated Pan and Tilt (IPT) and Integrated Single-Axis Rotator (ISAR) the capability and extend of real-time monitoring can be significantly increased, particularly for slow or static deployments such as barges. The use of external positioning on targets requiring discrete tracking can additionally be configured in the USE software to provide autonomous tracking over the entire IPT or ISAR field of movement.

The real-time 3D volumetric Echoscope also can be used to aid navigation of Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), as well as providing valuable visualization of the subsea environment for the removal of sediment, debris or critical assets. It can immediately identify complex targets, such as cable catenaries or existing breakwater blocks. These unique features make the Echoscope useful for a number of applications, from creating real-time 3D models of downed oil platforms and super structures, to understanding complex subsea asset alignment for decommissioning purposes.
