The Kongsberg Group is a high tech multinational corporation with 4,000 employees in more than 20 countries. It is a leader in the field of equipment for hydroraphic survey, underwater positioning, swimmer and mine detection and imaging (T.V. and sonar imaging).
Sonar for underwater inspection & survey of structures
Kongsberg Mesotech pioneered the use of scanning sonar for underwater marine engineering applications. The company is a world leader in the development of products used for visualisation of underwater structures (bridges, docks, piers, dams etc.) and using sonar to support a multitude of underwater construction applications. Underwater inspection of man-made structures is vital as they age. Water currents, corrosion and damage from storms and vessels may impact structural integrity.
Diving inspections are often challenged by high current, deep water, lack of visibility and debris accumulation around the structure. In addition to limiting the diver from completing a thorough inspection, debris build-up around bridge piers is potentially one of the most dangerous conditions the inspection diver faces. It introduces the possibility of entanglement, and even worse, diver entrapment if the debris moves.
High resolution sonar provides superior quality data, and the compact size and portability of the sonar enables quick, frequent monitoring and lower costs. The Kongsberg Mesotech scanning sonar and MS 1000 processing software system is ideal for underwater engineering, search and surveying applications.
MS1000 Scanning Sonar
Single-beam sonars use a single transducer to transmit and receive acoustic energy signals, or "pings". There are two types of single-beam sonar, profiling and imaging. Imaging sonar is primarily used for visual interpretation and uses a fan-shaped acoustic beam to scan a specified area or target. Profiling sonar is primarily used for quantitative measurements where a narrow, conically shaped beam generates a single point for each ping. With single-beam scanning sonar, the smaller and narrower the horizontal beam, the better the resolution.
There are two versions of single-beam sonar heads: high-resolution and domed.
- Range of products available with depth ratings from 650 to 11,000 metres
- Variety of frequencies and configurations available
- Reliable and low maintenance systems
- Standard telemetry is RS232/RS485, ethernet optional
- Requires MS 1000 software to operate sonar and process data
M3 Multibeam Sonar
The M3 Sonar is a 2D multibeam system with imaging and profiling capabilities. The M3 Sonar provides high resolution and easy to interpret images by combining the rapid refresh rate of conventional multibeam sonar with image quality comparable to a single beam sonar. Detection of small objects out to 150 metres combined with a 120° to 140° field of view allows the operator to see the complete underwater picture in real-time.

Introduced in 2002 the Falcon ROV has been a runaway success. Small, powerful and versatile, it has gained popularity throughout the world - a total of 395 sold (update August 2016).
Electric ROV's are making inroads into the hydraulic ROV market as they prove themselves to be powerful, reliable, lighter and smaller. This can be crucial where deck space is at a premium. In making comparisons it is useful to think of one mechanical or hydraulic horsepower as being equal to 745.699872 watts. Thus 74.5kW = 100HP. The largest Saab Seaeye ROV is the Jaguar and is equivalent to 125HP.
CaviDyne have developed a revolutionary new approach to removing marine growth underwater - the CaviBlaster. The technique employs cavitation: collapsing bubbles create a vacuum that cleans surfaces quickly and safely - replaces high pressure water jetting.
