Hi-res, flexible underwater imaging system
The SeaBat 7128 is a forward-looking multibeam imaging system. It’s ideal for shallow-water imaging applications, generating hi-res images even when your vessel is sailing at speed. But if you want to go deeper, you can install it on an ROV and still get hi-res images at 6,000 metres below sea level. And because the system is unaffected by siltation in the water column, ROVs can carry out complex manoeuvres in zero visibility.
The SeaBat 7128 is an indispensible tool for the support of subsea construction projects where real time visualization is the difference between success and failure, and has been used successfully for the detection and localization of subsea leaks from ROV platforms in the offshore environment.
The SeaBat 7128 is in addition used for Mine Countermeasure (MCM) operations, and is a capable sensor as part of a diver detection solution either for choke points such as harbor entrances or for classification of diver like objects from mobile platforms.
The combination of high accuracy acoustic positioning technology with real-time imaging sonars, offers the operator a very efficient visualization when installing any structure on the seafloor. The SeaBat 7128 imaging sonar has been used in guidance of:
- Pipeline crossing mattresses
- Templates, manifolds, jumpers and spool piece installation
- Guidance of pipelines being installed in pre-existing trenches
A versatile tool for serious applications.
The SeaBat 7128 uses commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components and software, so you can add to, expand or upgrade your system to meet new challenges – without spending a fortune.
