Rapid Deployment Hydrographic Surveys

In a maritime emergency, time is of the essence and accurate information is essential. It is crucial to understand the nature of the subsea structure, condition of the casualty and other artefacts that have an impact on early decision-making.

With the latest technology at our disposal, we can present 3D modelling of structures with IHO levels of accuracy, processed on-site, in the shortest time possible, and with extremely accurate and quantitative results.

Using Lidar and photogrammetry where applicable, we can give a complete picture in the event of a complex structure where elements are both under and above water.

Our equipment has been selected for its technical compliance and portability. We are able to fly a team in with a full IHO compliant multibeam spread as accompanied luggage. This equipment is con­figured for mobilisation onto almost any vessel of opportunity, from a dugout to a PSV.
