Offshore

Offshore is a primary focus area for Teledyne Marine. Teledyne RESON and BlueView offer a comprehensive product program for dedicated multibeam echosounders and sonars, supported by a global service organization to follow and support customers in this international industry. The forward looking imaging sonars from Teledyne BlueView provide an invaluable aid to ROV operators when navigating and maneuvering around Offshore subsea structures, and for pipeline surveying the SeaBat 7125 system is the favored choice for many survey companies, providing unrivalled performance. On the forefront of technology are innovative market leading features such as target detection systems for station keeping of ROV’s and automatic tracking systems to detect and follow pipelines. This is technology that provides customer value by improving operational effectiveness, reducing cost and shortening the time from data collection to end-product. Main applications within offshore are pipeline surveying, metrology, inspection & monitoring, obstacle avoidance and leakage detection. 
While the wide range of multibeam echosounders gather high resolution terrain information from the seafloor, Teledyne’s sub-bottom profilers look deeper. With PARASOUND, sediment structures as slim as 15 cm can be visualized, buried objects can be localized prior offshore cable trenching, or geologically stable pipeline routes identified. (see figure 4)

Civil Engineering & Dredge

Teledyne Marine offers a comprehensive suite of solutions to support Civil Engineering & Dredge operations. Our product range includes hydrographic grade singlebeam echosounders, sub-bottom profiles and sound velocity profilers by Odom Hydrographic, 2D imaging sonars and 3D multibeam scanning sonars by BlueView and the SeaBat world leading range of multibeam echosounders all coupled with the power of Teledyne PDS software for hydrographic surveying and dredge guidance operations.

Teledyne Marine is the only supplier with a full spread of acoustic and software solutions to meet the demands of the civil engineering and dredge market.
Main application areas are during, pre and post dredge surveys, dredge guidance, construction support, bridge dam & harbor inspection and scour and undercut monitoring.
 Accuracy is crucial for pre and post dredge surveys. Every centimeter counts as removal of even a fraction of a meter in depth can be a costly undertaking when done over a large area. (see figure 5) Teledyne Odom provides accurate soundings with a unique patented bottom detection process for the most reliable results. Sounders are frequency agile and provide either paper or electronic readout. For a highly portable and robust multibeam echosounder,consider the Odom MB1 or MB2. For higher accuracy in a portable water resistance package take a look at the SeaBat T20-P. For those demanding nothing but the best look to the SeaBat 7125 for uncompromising accuracy and a powerful set of features.
High resolution multibeams provide a unique ability to monitor and support subsea construction by allowing engineers to visualize progress in real time. BlueView 2D imaging sonar provide high resolution real time imaging and 3D multibeam scanning sonar provide high resolution 3D point clouds of areas and structures scanned for inspections throughout the construction project. (see figure 6) RESON SeaBat multibeams support operations requiring longer range and where the most stringent hydrographic results are required, and also provide a powerful set of features.

Defence and Security

Today more than ever, nations rely on their naval capabilities to maintain their national interests at home and abroad. The demand for ever enhancing capabilities combined with tighter budgets is an ongoing challenge for most navies. Teledyne Marine is ready to support those needs by leveraging the widest range of sonar systems and hydrophones on the market, and offers the ability to customize capabilities when required.
Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) products provide excellent performance for a fraction of the price of traditional military systems, the cost of ownership through the product lifecycle is typically lower for commercial systems. Teledyne Marine is represented in the naval market by products from RESON and BlueView including multibeam echosounders for tactical bathymetric mapping, 2D forward looking sonars for a variety of applications, and high quality hydrophones widely used by navies and institutes around the world.
Main application areas include terrain mapping, obstacle avoidance, mine counter measures, diver detection and first responder support.
Obstacles in the water column range from debris to moored mines and are a risk to survey assets and the personnel that operate them. Traditional surface vessels rely on charts for safe of navigation, but for naval operations charts are often unavail¬able. Underwater vehicles must avoid objects in their path and are often fitted with single beam scanning sonars for this purpose, however, these provide a slow update rate only covering part of the forward sector at any given instant. Teledyne Marine has the answer, from larger long range SeaBat  systems which can operate on surface vessels to 6,000m depth, to the most compact low power BlueView 2D sonars (depth rated to 3,000m) Teledyne Marine has a solution that will work for you. (see figure 7)
 The ability to locate and stabilize a drowning victim quickly can be the difference between life and death. Teledyne Marine has a variety of solutions to support first responders allowing them to improve the speed of victim recovery. Solutions include 2D multibeam imaging sonars such as the RESON SeaBat 7128 most suitable for surface vessel mount; to the more compact, lower weight BlueView multibeam sonars, suitable for surface vessel use, but also for use on portable low logistics ROVs or diver handle hand units – a powerful tool to get the job done quickly. (see figure 8)

How to produce bathymetric products within one day after surveying.

The Port of Rotterdam is an open deep-water port in theriver estuary Maas. The location of the port in an estuarineenvironment necessitates maintenance dredging due tosiltation ’attacks’ from both tidal current and riverdischarge. Siltation from the sea, coming in during theflood tide and eroded materials from the hinterlandtransported in the river flow results in a total of 6.000.000m3 of maintenance dredging works in the port basinsevery year.

Implementation of a Multibeam Echosounder and Terrestrial LiDAR in Support of a Dam Spillway Construction Project

Nestled Northeast of the city of Folsom, California, sits the 11,450-acre Folsom Lake—formed by an existing dam on the North Fork and South Fork of the American River. It is responsible for providing irrigation, drinking water, and electricity to parts of California, as well as flood prevention for the areas situated south of the lake. Despite the low risk of a damaging occurrence, it was decided (under the Reclamation Safety of Dams Act) that preventive measures needed to be taken to protect those living downstream. Construction of a new auxiliary spillway is in progress, which will provide a means for a steady water outflow during an increased water flow event. Carried out in phases, this project requires surveys from land and water to ensure successful completion. The $900-million cooperative project between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Department of the Interior, and Bureau of Reclamation will assist the Sacramento region to achieve the 200-year level of flood protection.Completion of the auxiliary spillway is scheduled for late 2017.

High Quality Surveys Using hybrid AUVs and state of the art hydrographic data acquisition software

The acquisition of QPS by Saab opened up for the possibility for closer integration between the Saab AUV platforms and the data acquisition software from QPS. This resulted in a joint project in 2014 to demonstrate a high end survey system that was capable of very accurate combined sonar, multibeam bathymetry, video and subbottom profiling. The system is based on Saabs hovering AUV capable of very stable autonomous close up scanning of both structures and bottom features. The QPS data acquisition software ensures that all data is collected together with navigation data in an optimal way for precision and further processing. The result is merged data of high quality that is easily evaluated and exported.
