World-Class, State-of-the-Art Technology for Subsea Operations

At Coda Octopus, we have been delivering effective and innovative solutions to this market for over twenty-five years and we service three key product offerings in this sector. We started innovating by bringing to the market the first digitized solution for the geophysical market (GEO Survey). Our geophysical (GEO) family of products have also been instrumental in offshore projects from pipeline inspections to geophysical surveys, thanks to a versatile product set that integrates to all commonly used side scan sonars and shallow seismic sensors and with post-processing software that can be used with all data formats.

Our MOTION range of sensors provides precision attitude and positioning solutions for a range of tasks including hydrographic surveying, placement, and landing for use with, or compatible with, all leading measurement and survey sensors. 

We continued our innovation through the introduction to the market of the first (and still only) commercially available real-time 3D volumetric sonar, the Echoscope®, which generates a real-time 3D image of the underwater environment in zero visibility conditions, of both static and moving objects. Real-time 3D sonars produce thousands of sonar beams over a 2D area for every ping. By calculating the range (and optionally intensity) for each of these beams, a complete 3D image per ping can be created. For example, the Coda Octopus patented Echoscope produces more than 16,000 beams over a typical 50o by 50o area. With ping rates as high as 20Hz, even moving objects can be clearly visualized with real-time 3D sonars. Additionally, combining the 3D sonar data with the sonar’s position and orientation allows every 3D point to be geo-referenced in local or world coordinates. This allows the ping data of static objects to be merged to create mosaics, i.e. full 3D maps of the scene.

Our real-time 3D volumetric sonar range has advanced the oil and gas market by assisting operators to navigate their ROV in harsh conditions and helping to place, position or salvage assets from the seabed. 

Real-Time Benefits

Visualization

  • Visualize Oil and Gas Leaks
  • Visualize Touchdown and Touchdown Points for Pipe Laying Operations

Decision Making

  • Constant Monitoring of the entire operation from start to finish

Deliverables

  • Full documentation of the entire timeline
  • Comprehensive structural maps and final site clearance plan without having to expend costs on post-processing
  • Data is recorded and displayed in 3D volumes in real time
Channel Route Clearance

Channel Route Clearance

Channel and Route Clearance surveys are required for new construction projects such as pipe or cable routes, or for channel depth inspection to support deep draft vessels and assets. It is critical in both scenarios to provide unambiguous and high level of detail survey data to the operators in real-time to make essential decisions for remediation.

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.

Dredging

Dredging

Coda Octopus has been involved in dredging operations that have spanned some of the world’s largest trailing suction hopper dredger down to bucket dredgers deployed from a small barge. All operations, regardless of size, have been focused on ensuring site clearance has been performed to specification and in a productive and efficient manner.

Geophysical Site Investigation

Geophysical Site Investigation

When geophysical surveys are required for projects such as new marine construction, oil discovery, or offshore wind farms, surveyors rely on quick reporting and easy-to-interpret data. The CodaOctopus® GEO range of geophysical data acquisition and interpretation hardware and software remains a worldwide market leader.

Placement and Landing

Placement and Landing

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, thus minimizing risk, minimizing downtime, and maximizing progress.
