Fugro Chance, Coda Octopus to collaborate on subsea imagery

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Fugro Chance Inc. and Coda Octopus Group Inc. (CODA) have entered into a two-year cooperation agreement to take advantage of Coda Octopus Echoscope, a patented 3D sonar technology. The relationship will give CODA early access to real-world requirements associated with Fugro Chance projects.

Coda Echoscope Dual Frequency 3D Sonar is a sonar device using phased array technology. It generates more than 16,000 beams simultaneously, to produce instantaneous 3D sonar images of both moving and stationary objects, and to enable rapid reconnaissance and inspection.

Tony Gray, Fugro Chance data manager, said: “There is a world of possibilities with this 3D technology; be it installing platform legs subsea, seabed clearance surveys, or even close-proximity subsea structure point cloud acquisition. Echoscope is a resourceful tool that can be used in subsea projects where time, risk, and depth are all critical factors to visualization and measurement.”

The two companies will work together on joint developments of new applications for meeting Fugro Chance requirements in data visualization and processing. In addition, Fugro Chance will gain market advantage from training opportunities provided by CODA as well as project support.
