Partners Go Deep-Sea Surveying
By Mat Dirjish
Signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to provide enhanced seabed survey technologies, ThayerMahan and PanGeo Subsea are partnering to provide a complete suite of state-of-the-art seabed and sub-seabed survey technologies to reduce risk and provide 3D acoustic imagery to clients in the offshore energy, national security, academia, and scientific communities.
PanGeo Subsea’s imaging technology can identify sub-seabed hazards using real time 3D volumetric synthetic aperture sonar data. ThayerMahan SeaScout uses an actively stabilized towfish and synthetic aperture sonar to produce high resolution, real-time seabed imagery at high speed from vessels large and small. ThayerMahan personnel can control and monitor seabed survey operations from their Connecticut operations center.
PanGeo Subsea offers two acoustic survey technologies: the Sub-Bottom Imager and the Acoustic Corer. The technologies penetrate the seabed floor to depths of 20 to30 ft. and 120 ft., respectively, to provide real-time 3D visualization of buried geohazards. ThayerMahan provides high-speed, large-swath seabed surveys from vessels both large and small.
PanGeo’s sub-seabed imaging technologies will augment ThayerMahan’s current seabed survey capabilities to provide the full range of surveying services necessary to safely conduct marine installations. For more details, visit ThayerMahan and PanGeo Subsea.
