Teledyne Marine offers a unique product range specifically designed to fulfill growing demand for precise and repeatable mapping of subsea infrastructure, including pipelines and cables.

There are hundreds of thousands of kilometres of subsea assets such as communication cables, power cables and pipework installed and buried beneath the seabed across the world’s oceans. 

This subterranean infrastructure is keeping continents, countries and smaller islands connected, delivering communications, power and natural resources, considered vital for generations to come. 

Given that all buried assets necessitate regular survey and maintenance, the escalating requirements for accurate location and burial depth, both for operational safety and commercial considerations, underscore the need for reliable, high-performance systems to survey the seabed and assess the characteristics of these assets.

The HydroPACT Family

The HydroPACT family of detection systems is built on leading technology that has undergone continuous improvements since its introduction over three decades ago. Initially, the 340 set the standard for high accuracy and reliable pipe tracking solutions. 

This was further refined with the release of the 440, featuring improved algorithms and a user-friendly interface. The latest addition to the HydroPACT group, the 660E, is a compact version of the 440, introducing the next generation of pipe tracking specifically designed for smaller classes of ROVs, prioritizing size and payload weight.

In conjunction with the 350, which established the benchmark for cable tracking with an active tone, Teledyne TSS offers the most comprehensive product range for submarine pipe and cable detection, providing an unprecedented selection for trenchers, large work-class ROVs, and smaller observation-class ROVs. 

All HydroPACT products utilize the same intuitive and user-friendly topside GUI, DeepView. Having a single user interface simplifies the process for customers to familiarize themselves with setting up and using a system, whether they are conducting a pipe or cable tracking survey or engaging in UXO detection applications.
