Subsea Placement and Landing

Accurate 3D Visualization for Placement and Landing Projects

By providing operators with the invaluable ability to monitor operations live, the Echoscope® real-time 3D volumetric sonar and the CodaOctopus® Underwater Survey Explorer (USE) software have been used on subsea asset installation operations around the world. They provide operators with the greatest real-time control of the operation, minimizing risk, minimizing downtime, and maximizing progress.

Coda Octopus products support placement and landing projects from initial site inspection all the way to post-lay surveys, enhancing the productivity and safety of each operation. By creating a patented volumetric swath, the Echoscope® is uniquely able to visualize underwater operations instantly, without any post processing.

Real-time monitoring provides a number of benefits to placement and landing projects, allowing offshore contractors to place subsea structures, such as manifolds or Christmas trees, more accurately on the seabed because the site can be “seen” during the placement operation. The Echoscope is able to visualize the placement live, in 3D, and in zero visibility water conditions. This innovative real-time 3D sonar can operate from both static and moving vessels, allowing the user to hover over the landing zone as placement is made.

In addition to monitoring underwater operations live, this integrated solution also produces real-time 3D mosaics to deliver survey grade bathymetric data during the operation or as part of a pre- or post-lay survey. The high-resolution imaging gives the operator more detail and more confidence that there are no impeding hazardous subsea objects, and the proof that the task was executed correctly the first time.

Real-Time Benefits


  • Real time 3D scene awareness of the entire operation regardless of zero visibility conditions

Decision Making

  • Monitoring precise asset placement allows offshore contractors to correct landings and ensure the asset is placed correctly the first time
  • Fully measurable 3D live dataset for instant assessment and verification
  • Ability to integrate additional positional sensors and reference markers in real-time for wider scene awareness beyond the viewpoint of the Echoscope.


  • Integration of all design drawing and measurement point data to allow complete staged workflow of operations to be seen and measured.
  • Complete documentation of the pre and post scene as well as full recording of the live operations
