Underwater Intelligence for Modern Subsea Threats

Underwater Intelligence for Modern Subsea Threats

Changes to modern military strategy and warfare require advanced and responsive technological solutions, specifically when clear visibility is not a guarantee. At Coda Octopus, we hold the patent for the world’s only real-time 3D volumetric sonar, capable of visualizing and mapping static and moving objects underwater, even in zero visibility conditions.

With the Echoscope®, it is now possible to rapidly assimilate data of the littoral environment, enabling real-time 3D visualization of the area enabling identification of the threats and hazards including detection and tracking of moving threats such as AUVs and divers.

This exceptionally adaptable technology can also be deployed on an autonomous surface or subsurface vehicle to enable safe navigation around mines and other subsea threats.

Further applications include the safe monitoring and instruction of divers to potential hazardous objects from mission control, significantly reducing the time of the search and locate phase of the dive operation.

Coda Octopus has recently entered into a Navy Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with Naval Surface Warfare Center for the naval real-time 3D imaging Head Up Display diver solution. Real-time 3D sonar data from the 3D Head-Up Display (HUD) System will feed directly into the Divers Augmented Vision Display (DAVD), a high-resolution see-through head-up display embedded directly inside the diving helmet. The Divers Augmented Visual Display-Head Up Display System (DAVD-HUD) will integrate real-time 3D sonar and diver tracking data into the DAVD prototype, and display it simultaneously in real-time for both divers in the water and supervisors on the surface. It can then be used to navigate to targets, identify specific targets and conduct repair operations. This new scope of work extends to developing the second, third and fourth generations of the complete DAVD-HUD, including the helmet with all electronics, as well as the real-time 3D sonar and 3D visualization software and will significantly advance diving operations bringing increased productivity gains and health and safety benefits to these subsea naval operations.

AUV/ASV Navigation

AUV/ASV Navigation

With a drive to obtain “map to model” results quickly and efficiently from either an ROV or AUV, the Echoscope® sonar with CodaOctopus® Underwater Survey Explorer (USE) software delivers unsurpassed 3D high definition fidelity that ROV pilots greatly depend on for navigational aid.

Front End Threat Identification

Front End Threat Identification

Advanced naval and military applications require the ability to detect unknown threats and hazards before ships, autonomous vehicles, or landing crew vessels reach them. The Echoscope real-time 3D volumetric sonar technology can identify foreign objects rapidly and assist manned and unmanned vehicles navigate around the threat.

Hazard Identification and Avoidance

Hazard Identification and Avoidance

The Echoscope® combined with CodaOctopus® Underwater Survey Explorer (USE) software can either be used with almost any manned or unmanned surface vehicle. The proprietary beam forming technology allows the operator to see more around complex structures, increasing the likelihood of IED detection or contraband and evidence recovery.

Littoral Inspection and Mapping

Littoral Inspection and Mapping

Critical marine infrastructure, like Ports and Harbors, require to be constantly monitored against the threat from terrorist activity. Given the large area to be covered, any solution needs to be easily deployed, used by non-technical operators, whilst providing clear and unambiguous information on the above and below waterline scene.

Mine Countermeasures

Mine Countermeasures

Our calibrated Echoscope® real-time 3D sonar system enables a user to locate objects of known target strength, which makes the system ideally suited to a range of underwater applications including Mine Countermeasures (MCM), environmental projects and rapid object classification surveys.

Real-Time Monitoring

Real-Time Monitoring

For all military and security personnel, instant information regarding subsea threats is a necessity to ensure the safety of the public and the crew. Our real-time 3D volumetric sonar, the Echoscope®, is capable of providing a live, 3D volumetric image of the subsea environment even in zero visibility waters.

Search and Rescue/Recovery

Search and Rescue/Recovery

Looking for either suspended objects in the water column or sunken assets on the seabed is a difficult task. The Echoscope® uses proprietary beam forming technology to produce a volumetric swath capable of locating critical evidence that has been disposed.
