The services below form the bulk of our repertoire. Should you require any other form of service we will gladly try to assist.

As can be seen from the CV's we have vast experience in this sector. From rivers and dams to harbours and oceans, underwater pipelines to sub sea mining.
We can undertake any underwater investigation and service as listed below:

  • Bathymetry using single or multi-beam echo sounders
  • Sub-bottom profiling
  • Side-Scan sonar surveys
  • Magnetometer surveys
  • ROV surveys
  • Metocean/Oceanographic research
  • Weather Stations
  • Survey Vessel Static Position Measurement

Please contact us should you require a specific request not mentioned here as we have access to other equipment via strategic alliances.

Terrestrial Photogrammetry

High Density Laser Scanning

Should more detail be needed over and above the Terrestrial option above we then advise using our latest Leica HDS 3000 Laser Scanner and HDS 6000. This will enable 3D point clouds to be measured to an accuracy of 6mm( at 50m).

NEW: Survey Vessel Static Postion Measurement by either Terrestial or HD Survey Methods

Survey vessels can now be modeled using Terrestrial or HD methods to accurately measure the static positions of all survey equipment onboard in relation to each other and the ships origin. Vessel outlines, for navigation and profile views, are a byproduct of this.
The same method can be applied when measuring other vessels e.g. dredgers and aircraft for LIDAR operations.

NEW: Mobile High Density Scanning

Our experience using multibeam equipment and data has led us to MOBILE HIGH DENSITY SCANNING. This natural progression will now enable us to offer a "one stop shop" HIGH DENSITY survey service that incorporates MOBILE HDS Laser Scanners and Multi Beam echosounders  or just MOBILE HDS on its own mounted on either our survey vessel or vehicle of choice.

Land and Engineering Surveys

Again, a look at our CV will show the vast experience in this division. From roads to bridges, tunnels to runways, cadastral surveys, everything is catered for.
With the use of the latest Total Stations and GPS units we can accomplish a lot more a lot faster.


We also offer a mapping service should you require it. Any format can be supplied through our survey and mapping/CAD packages
For presentation purposes our modeling delivery is an excellent tool. At present we can supply it in two formats – AVI movie format or a Scaled Real Life Topographical Model.

AVI Format

An AVI movie file can be created with a user definable route which will take you through the site presenting a 3-dimensional view. Alternatively, and also in AVI format, the model can be rotated through any of the 3 axis for further viewing. On top of this sound tracks can be added such as music or a voiceover.

Scaled Real Life Topographical Models

Real life scale models as used by Architects presenting projects can be provided using latest CNC methods.


Should the need arise, personnel can be provided to either manage survey projects or be hired for their particular skills on a long or short term basis. This includes experienced and sought after personnel from a network throughout the world.

PLEASE contact us for more indepth information regarding our services.
