Established in 1991, Tritech International Limited [Tritech] began with the aim of producing an innovative range of subsea products for the offshore oil and gas industry, military and other world-wide subsea markets.  As specialists in the production of high performance acoustic sensors, sonars, video cameras and mechanical tooling equipment we serve professional underwater markets, including; defense, energy, engineering, survey and underwater vehicles.
In recent years, new markets have emerged from within these professional underwater markets, within the energy industry; decommissioning, debris clearance, hydro-electric and renewables and in within the defense industry; law enforcement and Search and Rescue (SAR). Operations in these working environments usually result in low-visibility and in very shallow or very deep water. From our imaging ranges (mechanical and multibeam) to our bathymetric sensors, to hydraulic and mechanical equipment, Tritech are able to support these developing industries. Today, Tritech, now a Moog Inc. company, remains a respected industry leader in the provision of sensors and tools for ROV/ AUV markets, a reputation achieved from over 21 years of delivering expertise through key industry-standard products such as the Super SeaKing mechanically scanning sonar and now the renowned Gemini suite of imaging and now profiling sonars.  

The Tech
Obstacle Avoidance & Target Recognition Sonar: Tritech’s SeaKing sonar is the sonar of choice for many of the world’s ROV fleets. For fast, reliable and complete operational flexibility, all products in the SeaKing family can be run simultaneously on a single ArcNet communications link, using the same processor and display.
