:Product Overview


Dimension® is a revolutionary new sonar for ROV and AUV operations

Dimension® is a revolutionary new sonar for ROV and AUV operations. Based on patented Echoscope® technology and industry-leading software, Dimension® provides unparalleled real-time visualisation for subsea vehicle applications. Designed for a wide range of ROVs, Dimension® is a unique, true real-time 3D sonar that transforms ROV underwater operations. 

For ease of integration the Dimension® sonar is also supplied with the CodaOctopus® Vehicle Integration Module (VIM). The VIM is vehicle mounted and connects directly to the Dimension® sonar providing interfaces to the ROV power, data and control sub-systems.

Using the CodaOctopus® Vantage software suite and advanced beamforming techniques, the Dimension® sonar provides the ROV pilot with a unique quad-view for safe navigation and obstacle avoidance purposes. The Vantage quad-view features a conventional plan-view, commonly provided by scanning sonars, along with three additional and separate real-time perspectives of the subsea environment.

Dimension® real-time 3D sonar with CodaOctopus® Vantage software is a leading-edge combination that will keep ROVs operating even in the most demanding of subsea conditions. 

The Dimension® can be supplied in OEM form for integration with subsea vehicles to perform unique 3D inspections and obstacle avoidance. Coda Octopus can supply technical integration packs and consultancy to allow clients to seamlessly integrate the Dimension® with their vehicles.
