Didson Sonar Imaging                                               

Clear, accurate imaging is essential to your drilling operation, but oftentimes environmental factors prevent traditional subsea cameras and video equipment from performing the job effectively. When visibility is an issue, the service experts at Royal Service & Rentals, Inc. will use our DIDSON® dual-frequency sonar to provide high-quality imaging in real time under otherwise zero visibility conditions to help you document, survey, and inspect key aspects of your subsea operation.

The DIDSON® sonar system can be deployed by guideline system, drill pipe, ROV, and more. In addition to the traditional DIDSON® system, Royal also offers a hand held unit complete with mask mounted heads up display specifically designed for diver deployment.

Features and uses of the DIDSON® sonar system:
