LAFAYETTE, Louisiana -- C & C Technologies has completed a second project using the PROSAS Surveyor SAS sonar to assess pipeline integrity in the Gulf of Mexico.

C & C used the PROSAS to evaluate potential unsupported sections of pipelines on the seafloor resulting from marine traffic, tidal scour, and storm impact, and to determine whether structural repairs were required. Recently mobilized aboard the utility support vessel Andrew Charles, the PROSAS Surveyor performed a two-day 24/7 mission acquiring sonar data with 1 sq in resolution at 150 m (492 ft) range per side.

The system produced high definition, photographic-quality, real-time acoustic imagery across the transmission range.
