Innomar Workshop Seabed Acoustics


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 SES-2000 compact", "Innomar SES-2000 light", "Innomar SES-2000 standard") and the models used on ROVs and AUVs ("Innomar SES-2000 ROV", "Innomar SES-2000 AUV").
