Echoscope sensor to equip new AUV fleet

25th June 2012 - 15:13 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Coda Octopus has announced that its patented Echoscope 3-D imaging sonar has been selected by Lockheed Martin for a new fleet of autonomous subsea inspection vehicles. The company made the announcement in a 25 June 2012 statement.

According to the company, Echoscope provides the Marlin Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) with the unique sensory inputs that enable the construction of real-time 3-D models of structures up to 1,000 ft deep regardless of water clarity. The Marlin AUV is undergoing final development testing and is planned for introduction to the market later this year.

The company said the benefits of utilizing the Echoscope for subsea inspection operations include ‘increased productivity, unsurpassed data density and enhanced operational safety in complex environments’. The sensor was selected based on its unique ability to provide real-time point cloud images of underwater environments.
