Trenching and Rock Dumping

Monitor Trenching and Rock Dumping Operations in Real-Time

For cables and pipelines that require trenching and backfilling, traditional measuring and monitoring methods have been hampered by poor visibility and interference from the dredging and trenching machinery. Our real-time 3D volumetric sonar, the Echoscope®, uses proprietary technology to instantly visualize moving operations in zero visibility conditions, making it a powerful tool for both operators and management alike.

This unique technology produces a live, 3D real-time visualization of moving operations underwater even in challenging conditions, where strong currents or turbid waters threaten operational timelines. Rock Dumping is similar to dredging and uses our patented rendering technology with our real-time 3D volumetric sonar to provide comprehensive control and monitoring of the rock dumping operation – allowing directional and load control for the team on the surface.

The Echoscope® can also provide measurement data so that operators can monitor dredge depth, rock placement or cable bight and catenaries in real-time, all while increasing the productivity and controllability of the project even in challenging conditions, where strong currents or turbid waters threaten operational timelines.

CodaOctopus® Underwater Survey Explorer (USE) real-time 3D visualization software works with the data provided from the Echoscope to create easy-to-follow dredge depth models as well as a number of Digital Terrain Models (DTM) exporting options.
