Tritech has provided reference standard products for subsea operations for more than 20 years and its products are tried, tested and relied upon in ROV/ AUV markets. Established in 1991, Tritech International Limited [Tritech] began with the aim of producing an innovative range of subsea products for the offshore oil & gas industry, military and other world-wide subsea markets. As specialists in the production of high performance acoustic sensors, sonars, video cameras and mechanical tooling equipment it serves professional underwater markets, including; defense, energy, engineering, survey and underwater vehicles.
The Tech: Obstacle Avoidance & Target Recognition Sonar. Tritech’s SeaKing sonar is the sonar of choice for many of the world’s ROV fleets. For fast, reliable and complete operational flexibility, all products in the SeaKing family can be run simultaneously on a single ArcNet communications link, using the same processor and display. The Super SeaKing family of products provide all around obstacle avoidance and target search and recognition capability to any underwater vehicle, offering Digital Sonar Technology (DST) and low power consumption (suitable for AUV platforms). Real-Time Multibeam Imaging Sonar – Gemini. Tritech is a leader in the mechanical scanning sonar market; however as underwater vehicles become more powerful and time constraints become more critical offshore. Gemini’s real-time imaging eliminates the restrictions in low-visibility conditions. Current R&D initiatives include the development of the Gemini range and further multibeam applications as recently showcased at Ocean Business. RAMS is a real-time, field-proven system which detects the presence, integrity and position of mooring lines and risers deployed beneath a FPSO.
