Searching and Monitoring Buried Pipelines and Cables

Determining the burial depth of pipelines and cables is one of the main applications of Innomar's shallow water SBP models ("Innomar compact", "Innomar light", "Innomar standard") and the models used on uncrewed remote-controlled or autonomous vehicles ("Innomar smart", "Innomar standard-usv", "Innomar medium-usv", "Innomar standard-rov").
