Reliable Technology to Support Marine Robotic Operations: Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) to Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs)

Traditionally, ROVs rely on cameras for navigation and inspection because they are easy to interpret and offer first-person perspective. The limitations of this camera technology is that they require good visibility conditions. Therefore, when visibility is bad, ROVs do not fly. 

Our state-of-the-art technology, which forms part of our series of real-time 3D volumetric sonars, has changed this and now, irrespective of adverse conditions - including zero visibility conditions, ROVs can safely fly. We provide the world’s only first-person perspective volumetric imaging sonar for any water conditions. This technology, therefore, is a vital tool for safe navigation, obstacle avoidance, and critical asset inspection. It truly prevents downtime caused by zero visibility conditions for ROVs.

Our unique range of real-time 3D solutions of state-of-the-art technology with full 3D time series data is ideally suited to AUV applications and provides capability for adaptive route planning, full 3D time series data enabling look-ahead volumetric imaging and 3D obstacle avoidance. All these activities can be conducted simultaneously within this single real-time 3D sonar system.

Complex Structure Survey and Inspection

Complex Structure Survey and Inspection

In ports and harbors, docks and bridge structures are often comprised of multi-layer piling structures as many as 20 pilings deep. Standard multi-beam and mapping sonars which typically can only detect the first row of pilings. Our unique real-time 3D volumetric sonars however can image all of the pilings to the full depth typically in a single pass.

Critical Asset Inspection

Critical Asset Inspection

Critical Asset Inspections requires careful planning to image the target at the best geometry and distance for the highest data quality. Our CodaOctopus® Underwater Inspection System (UIS) is used on a daily basis as a versatile real-time sonar for underwater inspections of critical infrastructure assets, risk assessment, vessel hull surveys and routine clearance surveys.

Dive Inspection Support

Dive Inspection Support

When divers are deployed in critical subsea operations, it is paramount for top-side dive supervisors to maintain clear and constant visibility or the dive site at all times. The Echoscope®, Coda Octopus’s flagship real-time 3D volumetric sonar, instantly visualizes moving objects underwater live and in 3D, despite zero visibility water conditions.

Pipeline Inspection

Pipeline Inspection

The Coda Octopus 3D and MOTION product families support more dynamic operations including pipeline laying and rapid inspections. The Echoscope® real-time 3D sonar produces a volumetric swath with a large quantity of data points per pulse, in order to visualize moving operations live, in real-time.
