MTR100: C&C Technologies
730 E Kaliste Saloom Rd, Lafayette, LA 70508
Thomas and Jim Chance formed C & C Technologies in 1992 to advance survey technology, just like their father. The company was the first to offer commercial AUV survey services to the offshore industry. Since then, it has continued to advance this technology. Along with its sister company Autonomous Surface Vehicles, Ltd., C & C offers unmanned surface vehicles for both the military and commercial markets.
C & C has developed a cutting edge surveying instrument, the C-Surveyor VI. The device combines a proprietary camera system, laser, upgraded multi-beam, geo-chemical suite of sensors, and “Auto Pipeline Tracking.” With this new surveyor, a full inspection can be completed with just one pass over the top or either side of the pipe. It can also give detailed span measurements and detect potential leaks.
