ADUS DeepOcean have demonstrated that basic overall archaeological site plans are more accurately produced by multibeam sonar and in a fraction of the time that a team of experienced divers would take. A large three-dimensional archaeological asset, such as an upstanding wreck, would take months if not years of intensive diving to survey but could take as little as 20 minutes with a multibeam system. New underwater laser and photogrammetric technologies now allow finer detail to be recorded, which are now almost comparable to drawings produced by diving archaeologists.

I have, and remain, a keen supporter of ADUS and the high resolution surveys that you have performed.
ADUS has brought something novel to the industry and wherever it is exhibited, it has drawn interest as I am sure you know.David Pockett - Marine Consultant LOC Marine & Engineering Constultants
