Coda Octopus Introduces 3D Sonar for ROVs and AUVs
Coda Octopus has designed Dimension, a revolutionary new sonar for ROV and AUV operations. Based on Echoscope 3D imaging technology and industry-leading software, Dimension provides real-time 3D imaging for subsea vehicle applications.
Designed for deployment on a wide range of subsea vehicles, Dimension is a true real-time 3D sonar that transforms ROV underwater operations.
Using the Vantage software suite and advanced beamforming techniques, the Dimension sonar provides the ROV pilot with a unique Vantage QV (Quad View) feature for safe navigation, obstacle avoidance and real-time subsea scene imaging.
Vantage QV features a conventional plan-view, commonly provided by scanning sonars, along with three additional simultaneous real-time perspectives of the subsea environment: forward, side and 3D.
The Vantage software also includes a user toolkit allowing events, targets and measurements to be applied to the data during both acquisition and playback.
