CodaOctopus® Underwater Inspection System (UIS)

CodaOctopus® Underwater Inspection System (UIS)


Our Underwater Inspection System (UIS) is specifically designed for Port and Harbor security activities, such as reconnaissance and inspection.

Producing Detailed GPS Referenced Underwater Scans


The CodaOctopus® Underwater Inspection System (UIS) is the world's first fully integrated 3D sonar system for specialized underwater applications such as maritime security, port and harbor maintenance, search and recovery, and intruder visualization and classification. The system can also be used to rapidly assess storm damage, locate sunken debris, and provide baseline maps of critical infrastructure.

Using Echoscope real-time 3D volumetric sonar technology to deliver precise, intuitive, and instantaneous three-dimensional images, the UIS is the only system that is suitable for multiple applications, producing detailed GPS referenced underwater scans in real-time. Even the least experienced operator can undertake rapid inspections of harbor walls, bulkheads, piers, bridges, pilings and ship hulls. The system can also be utilized to inspect and clear shipping channels and to image and classify divers and underwater vehicles.

Alongside the Echoscope sonar, the UIS delivers co-referenced above waterline imagery via a ruggedized waterproof digital video camera for both day and night operation. Immediate GPS data referencing is provided by a pre-calibrated F180® series system, which simultaneously outputs heading and motion data. Each subsystem sensor is connected through a 3D Connect, which acts as the hub for fast and rapid deployment, to a mission control laptop running dedicated and intuitive CodaOctopus® Underwater Survey Explorer Professional (USE PRO) topside software.

Complete with a rugged and easily deployed vessel pole mount, the UIS is currently used by law enforcement agencies, military organizations and port security operatives as a means to have fast access to high definition subsea data for decision-making purposes.
