Perform asset inspections with greater accuracy, speed and cost effectiveness.
SubSLAM Capabilities

Model Live
Live and immediately available 3D reconstructions

Live 3D point cloud data can be streamed to any device, anywhere in the world during inspections. Use the experience of onshore teams to ensure no return trips.

Digital Twins
Generate digital twins

Compare “as built” vs “as found” using measurable 3D reconstructions. Perform year-on-year difference modelling to track degradation and marine growth on complex structures.

Geo Referenced Co Ordinates
Geo-referenced coordinates

Achieve seamless alignment of high resolution, photorealistic 3D reconstructions with traditional bathymetric datasets like MBES and Sidescan Sonar by interfacing SubSLAM with an INS.

Planned and remedial inspections of jacket structures

Straight forward data collection with no need to contact the structure. A high-definition 3D model is produced live while the ROV conducts a visual inspection which provides verification that all necessary areas have been completed. This reconstruction can be streamed on low bandwidth VSAT links for live viewing onshore by multiple stakeholders. If defects are detected plans for remedial engineering can be made from high precision, measurable post-processed datasets. 

Repeatable data collection and processing procedures mean that models can be assessed year-on-year to quantitatively track changes over time. This insight can be vital in determining how quickly an issue may be propagating, informing teams of their remediation strategy.

Subslam X2 Jacket Inspection Vaarst

Inspection of ship hull for damage or marine growth

SubSLAM X2 enables a live and immediately measurable model. Alongside verified coverage, this allows operators to know that they have covered the whole hull and allows navigation back to features of interest. The ability to run ML models at the edge gives you semantic information in real time, telling you what you’re looking at and where it is located for instant decision-making.

Vaarst Suslam Hull Inspection

Salvage operations to determine condition and location of artefact of interest 

Using SubSLAM X2 removes the need to undertake MBES and Side Scan Sonar surveys. High-resolution models are produced live in accurate geolocation, assisting clear decision making. These models are immediately measurable to sub-mm accuracy if requiredVerified coverage of data collection ensures that all data is captured, avoiding costly return trips

ML Platform for pipeline inspection

Vaarst’s Machine Learning (ML) Platform is a solution to quickly event and QC hours of survey datasets in a fraction of the time and with a higher quality output.

SubSLAM® for visual inspection of mooring chains

A major Oil & Gas operator required a visual inspection of multiple mooring chains to be undertaken, to evaluate the wear of contact points. To do so, a contracted ROV service provider powered by Vaarst technology, SubSLAM® X2, was chosen to undertake the survey and collect the highest quality data possible.
