Site Survey and Inspection

Conduct continuous and extensive site surveys to inspect underwater infrastructure, wrecks or sensitive environmental habitats without resurfacing -- from the comfort and safety of a 5-person submersible. The ability to have direct “eyes on site” ensures immediate verification and confirmation of site specific issues or problems.

Manned submersibles provide an excellent vehicle to conduct multiple surveys and analysis of critical infrastructure, perform multi-directional site surveys, map local area geography, or carry-out sensitive reconnaissance work.

Potential applications for submersible inspection

  • Hydrographic survey, sea floor area mapping and data collection
  • Site surveys and inspection of oil and gas fields

  • Hull and ship inspection, including hull-side survey and propulsion systems
  • Water, sewer, and drainage outfall inspection
  • Aquatic sea life monitoring, documentation and assessment
  • Potential polluting wreck inspection
  • Search and confirmation of lost or missing aircraft, ships, and high-value assets
