ROV LATIS tasked to survey stricken hull

ROV LATIS was taked to survey the hull of the stricken vessel as it lies. The ROV has used the forward looking sonar to complete this task and the real time video streams from onboard sonar and video has again been relayed back to command.

  

 

 This high resolution sonar data can be assessed to not only give an accurate picture of the intact hull but also give a high resolution image of how the ship lies on the seafloor. Such surveys can be of particular interest when it comes to recovering the vessel or if the vessel is in danger of moving - such as in the case of the Costa Concordia.
