3D Interactive Subsea Surveys

ADUS DeepOcean specialises in high-resolution surveys of man-made structures that are totally or partially submerged. These include shipwrecks, wind turbines; oilrigs, debris fields (with or without UXO); assets related to energy production; and submerged archaeological sites. We undertake subsea surveys at any depth by using appropriate remote systems.

About ADUSDeepOcean

ADUS DeepOcean specialises in high-resolution surveys of man-made structures that are totally or partially submerged. These include shipwrecks, wind turbines; oilrigs, debris fields (with or without UXO); assets related to energy production; and submerged archaeological sites. We undertake subsea surveys at any depth by using appropriate remote systems. 
 
We exploit the full potential of the best available survey and support equipment through the use of ADUS DeepOcean’s own advanced data acquisition techniques, coupled with our unique visualisation methodology. Our aim is to collect the best possible data and then present it in a way that is understandable to everyone, including specialist engineers, asset managers and even accountants! 
 
Our primary underwater survey tool is high-frequency multibeam sonar, often supported by laser and photogrammetry.  In-air surveys use scanning laser and photogrammetry, from drones if necessary. The resulting metrical data can be visualised as a flat 2-D image; as a virtual 3-D interactive model (with a movie fly around if required); 4-D options are available when surveys are repeated over time. We can also provide scale models from a 3-D printer. 
 
Specialist staff within ADUS DeepOcean include; experienced Category-A surveyors; leading visualizers of 3D and stereo imagery; archaeologists whose forensic skills can be applied to shipwreck, collision and accident site data; engineers who can quantify structural damage to ships or energy-related assets.
