ORION Boosts STR’s Portfolio

Posted by Irina Tabakina

Subsea Technology and Rentals (STR) added Optimal Ranging’s ORION pipe and cable tracker systems to its selection of underwater detection systems. ORION is Optimal Ranging’s new flagship product for Underwater Utility surveying.   Extending LIBRA’s Fieldsens  technology ORION now includes MultiSens and is available at STR in two, four and six sensor configurations.  ORION is rated to a depth of 2,000m, suitable for near-shore and deep-sea ROV survey and mountable on other platforms such as a sled or wing. ORION is compatible with leading hydrographic survey software including EIVA, QINSy and HYPACK. The ORION underwater utility survey system brings the power of model-based processing to cable and pipeline Depth of Burial (DoB) surveys.  The method is based on the optimization of data from multiple sensors against a model of the magnetic field expected from an underwater power cable carrying an AC tone (actively applied or passively present). System accuracy is estimated and presented in real-time.
