New Company 4D Ocean Established

A new company, 4D Ocean, was launched on Monday to provide autonomous survey services to the seabed mapping community.

The company is a dedicated ASV, AUV and UAV operator.

The initial ASV that 4D Ocean uses is the SeaRobotics USV 2.5, which is equipped with an R2Sonic 2020 multibeam sonar, Applanix Wavemaster inertial system and an autonomous SVP winch.

To help with mapping the coastal zone, the company has chosen the senseFly eBee Plus RTK UAV.

Duncan Mallace, 4D Ocean’s founder and managing director said: “It is similar to the early days of multibeam sonars, everyone sees that autonomous survey is a great idea and the way ahead but are reluctant to invest or don’t have the technological in-house capability. 4D Ocean has been formed to provide the systems and personnel and to drive the use of autonomous systems for seabed mapping.”
