Investigator joins Vessel Fleet

Home / Uncategorized / Investigator joins Vessel Fleet

Aquatica Marine has invested significantly in its hydrographic and marine survey capability with the recent acquisition of established survey vessel S.V.”Investigator”

Investigator is configured to support the following services; 

  • Multi-Beam & Single-Beam Bathymetry: hull mounted, dual frequency, single beam transducer and rapid deployment multi-beam system offers the full range of shallow and mid depth echo sounding capabilities. Investment in permanently installed Applanix motion referencing and HyPack/HySweep integrated navigation systems ensures the Investigator is ready for rapid mobilisation. 
  • Underwater Structure Inspection & Modelling: BlueView BV5000 3D multi-beam scanning sonar system is readily deployed from an on board hoist system to provide highest resolution underwater modelling including scour assessment, structure inspection and multi-beam survey infill. 
  • Marine & Geophysical Survey: Investigator benefits from a large open back deck space allowing for deployment of geophysical sensors including side-scan sonar, sub-bottom profiler, magnetometer, inspection class ROV and bed sampler. 
  • Mobile Mapping – LiDAR & Panoramic Photography: a IP-S3 HD1 mobile mapping system has been modified to allow rapid mobilisation to the survey vessel. Beneficial to water side asset management/inspection and as a complimentary data set to multi-beam surveys, the IP-S3 provides exceptional 3D positional accuracy, data resolution and acquisition speed. 

The Investigator is road trailer deployable to provide the most cost effective and versatile hydrographic survey solution.
