PanGeo Subsea mitigates installation risk for proposed SSIV structures by conducting SBI mosaic surveys which confirmed structure footprints were clear of buried debris. Detailed information on this project can be found on the SBI Projects Page.
We have uploaded a video showing SBI 3D Data Analysis in action. In this video the operator identifies a recently jetted “stealth” umbilical inside of a trench. The edges of the trench can be seen on either side of the cable and the void (low intensity area) inside the trench constitutes the recently disturbed sediment inside.

Sub-Bottom Imager™ (SBI) 3D Trenched Umbilical Tracking
PanGeo Subsea is very excited to anncounce that our very own Professor Jacques Yves Guigne is currently drafting a book entitled “Acoustic Investigation of Complex Seabeds“.
The book presents the state-of-the-art in acoustic exploration of the seabed and sub-seabed, from initial designs in the 1980s to commercial contracting and operation of the Acoustic Corer™ in the last decade and will focus on PanGeo’s own Acoustic Corer™.
It will be released in Spring 2014 by Springer Publishing and is expected to have a very wide distribution.
PanGeo Subsea successfully completed the fabrication and testing of its latest Acoustic Corer (AC), the AC3. The Acoustic Corer™ 3D technology images geohazards buried beneath the seafloor such as boulders, cemented layers, shallow gas, abandoned seabed infrastructure and unexploded ordnance.
This latest accomplishment by PanGeo was capped off by an Industry Showcase where the AC was demonstrated in front of local business leaders.
More images of the AC3 Showcase are available in the Acoustic Corer Photos Section of the website.
