Satellite Derived Bathymetry

Our Satellite Derived Bathymetry (SDB) uses state of the art technology to provide bathymetry at a resolution of up to 0.3 m. It is most useful in extremely shallow waters where navigation safety is an issue such as shoals, reefs, and proves to be very efficient in harbours and coastal areas.


This method is worldwide validated and its key benefits are remote access to difficult and impractical areas, cost efficiency and fast project delivery. SDB is a nonintrusive method, useful both in small and large areas, suitable for marine protected areas. There are no health and safety risks, as in conventional bathymetry survey. There are no special permits and mobilization requirements. The results may be calibrated using our singlebeam or multibeam sonars or data provided by the customer.

Our team can provide related services including water-quality monitoring and seafloor classification.
