Gather high-quality UXO data and cut costs

The ScanFish Katria is an intelligent wide-sweep underwater remotely operated towed vehicle (ROTV) solution for time-efficient magnetometer/UXO survey operations. As it comes with high-sensitivity underwater magnetometers for maximum target detection efficiency, it is an effective tool for detection of sub-bottom magnetic anomalies, including UXO.

Wide and dense coverage at a fixed height

The terrain-following operation mode of the intelligent ROTV ensures that it maintains a fixed height as close to the seabed as possible, depending on the topography. This equals high-quality data.

The horizontal array of underwater magnetometers enables you to cover a larger survey area in less time and ensures dense coverage, translating into better indication of signal strength and origin in one sweep.

When only the best is good enough

Magnetometer quality and performance are key to successful subsea surveys.

Therefore, the magnetometer type included in the ScanFish Katria is the Geometrics G-882 Marine Magnetometer. This is a high-end yet low-cost solution and the most used in the industry, and a perfect fit for subsea UXO detection.

Affordable survey setup

As the ScanFish Katria is towed at a distance, any type of vessel can be used without risking the survey data being affected by its magnetic signature.
