For the accurate measurement of position and orientation of surface vessels, we operate numerous systems from the world’s leading manufacturers. iXblue Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) are used in combination with high grade GNSS receivers to deliver reliable, high quality and precise data in the field.

For the provision of highly accurate subsea positioning, we rely upon the world class hardware and software solutions from iXblue. Sub Sea Inertial Navigation Systems, tightly coupled with Doppler Velocity Log (DVL), accurate pressure sensor and USBL aiding are one combination of sensors we use to undertake subsea navigation.

We provide specialist surface and subsea positioning survey capabilities or support for Out of Straightness survey of pipelines and highly accurate subsea positioning of Remotely Operated Vehicles.

What is subsea positioning?

Subsea positioning is the process of accurately placing survey and other equipment (such as an inertial guidance system, inertial navigation system, or inertial reference system) underwater to support construction, navigation, research, and similar marine-based activities.

What is surface positioning?

Surface positioning involves similar practices to subsea positioning, but the equipment is placed on the surface of – rather than underneath – the water.

What does iXblue offer?

iXblue provides a wide range of surface and subsea positioning solutions for the survey industry.

Applications of surface and subsea positioning

We provide specialist surface and subsea positioning survey capabilities or support for Out of Straightness survey of pipelines and highly accurate subsea positioning of Remotely Operated Vehicles. Applications include:

  • Metrology. Subsea metrology involves the acquiring of accurate, traceable, dimensional measurements that aid in the design of subsea structures and pipelines.
  • Precise underwater positioning. This application enables underwater objects to be tracked with a high level of accuracy.
  • SSS/ROV/AUV positioning. Both surface and subsea positioning services are suitable for the secure and precise placement of SSS, ROV, and AUV.
