Underwater Ship Hull inspection

A remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) is the preferred platform for hull inspections using underwater cameras and sonar. Vessel inspections can be completed in far less time than diver searches with little or no risk using M3 Multimode Multibeam Sonar mounted on an ROV platform. Sonar is positioned most easily by using an ROV with sufficient power to hold against currents and to press the structure of the ROV against the hull. This provides a steady platform for the sonar and enables high quality scans that readily define smaller foreign objects attached to hull structures. Rekun Drone provides ship huall inspection services and equipment together with a specialized software package to provide a complete picture of the ship’s hull, verifying that the areas scanned are clear, and documenting that areas have not been missed.
