BlueView products are well known for providing a game-changing technology for subsea imaging. 2D Imaging Sonar enables capture and record of video-like “movies”, even in low and zero visibility conditions. Integrating the 2D Imaging Sonar to an ROV is an effective way to create a highly mobile search and inspection tool. 3D Imaging Sonar improves underwater mission planning with detailed “as-is/ as-found” data and imagery of target structures. Other applications for BlueView sonars have included tunnel inspection of ageing pipelines, baseline ecological assessments in the deepwater and dam and harbour inspections. The small size of BlueView sonars makes them ideal for integration into inspection class ROVs and small AUVs.
The attached article provides a case study of the use of Teledyne BlueView T2250 Multibeam Profiling Sonar technology that enabled inspection of a tunnel without de-watering.
