Investigation using R.O.V. with Scanning Sonar

Three of Fire/Reconstruction Consultants Experts, on route to an Underwater Sunken Vessel Investigation.  (Sometimes you get to take the scenic route to get there )

Below the slideshow, is an explanation about the R.O.V. and Sonar, followed by some Sonar Imaging video footage.

VideoRay ROV Sonar Systems (explanation below provided by Video Ray website)

“Water visibility is arguably one of the most important factors when trying to complete a successful inspection mission with a VideoRay ROV. Though the ROV camera has a few options to assist with image quality in low light / low clarity situations, such as shutter speed, wide dynamic range, and LYYN real time video enhancement, it can only see so much when conditions are poor.

When trying to image structures, vessel hulls, or trying to locate unknown targets in low visibility or even complete blacked out environments, an acoustic imaging device is an essential tool.

There are several 2-dimensional (2D) imaging sonar and 360° scanning sonar solutions available that integrate seamlessly with the VideoRay Pro 3 and Pro 4 ROV systems. (Blue View Technologies provides that imaging sonar solution.)

These sonar systems attach in minutes to the ROV and utilize existing communication channels so there is never any reason to send back your system to the factory for integration. For intimate imaging missions to long range target location and navigation in low visibility environments there are several different frequency and field of view (FOV) options available in the 2D imaging sonar offerings.”
