/Coda Octopus Reports Successful Echoscope® Operation with Shell Prelude LNG Offshore Installation Campaign

Coda Octopus is delighted to report that in February 2016, it supplied multiple real-time 3D Echoscope® sonar solutions and engineer support for the Shell Prelude LNG Offshore Installation Campaign in the Browse Basin off the North Western coast of Australia.

The Echoscope® systems were installed on two construction class ROVs, from which they and CodaOctopus® Underwater Survey Explorer software generated real-time images. These real-time 3D images were a useful and productive aid in assisting the ROV pilots and survey teams with navigation around the subsea work site and performing the asset placement tasks such as mud-mats, manifolds, Christmas trees and suction piles.

Real-time 3D Echoscope®


The Echoscope® is the world’s first and highest resolution real-time 3D sonar. Built around unique patented technology, it generates a complete 3D model, composed of over 16,000 soundings, from each and every acoustic transmission. This 3D model is entirely refreshed up to 12 times per second with each new transmission.

The Echoscope® is driven by CodaOctopus® Vantage and CodaOctopus® Underwater Survey Explorer (CodaOctopus® USE) which is a range of state-of-the-art software for recording, displaying, processing and reporting on Echoscope® real-time 3D sonar data. Using the very latest in software development techniques and patented rendering algorithms, CodaOctopus® USE will enable the operator to view the subsea scene in the highest definition possible.
