C & C's AUV collected high-resolution multi-beam bathymetry, side scan sonar and sub-bottom profiler data in water depths ranging from 1000 to 1300 meters.

C & C Technologies recently completed an AUV hazard survey in Green Canyon 596, 640 and 641 for CheveronTexaco's Tahiti project. C & C's AUV, aboard the R/V Supporter, collected high-resolution multi-beam bathymetry, side scan sonar and sub-bottom profiler data in water depths ranging from 1000 to 1300 meters. During the project, the AUV collected over 1000 kilometers of survey line data that was analyzed by onboard route engineers for QA/QC measures.

Since becoming operational in January 2001, C & C's AUV has performed more than 26,000 kilometers of surveys on 54 different projects for government agencies and the oil and gas industry. The water depths for these projects range from 100 to 2850 meters and encompass different levels of complexity. Some of the more high profile projects have been locating historical World War II shipwrecks, performing pipeline investigation surveys and surveying through a full-scale production FPSO location.
