Kraken’s SeaVision® lowers operational and maintenance costs and increases life of field management. It allows for the creation of baseline “as-built” model, change detection and the quantification of defects, wear, and corrosion throughout the asset’s life.

SeaVision® uses an innovative, breakthrough, self-positioning technology that relies on the sensor visual base pose estimation solution for dynamic laser scanning, multiple scan registration and profiling, without the need for an additional navigational payload.

SeaVision® combines laser scanning, profiling, with photogrammetry and AI in a single sensor. The final output is an ultra-high-resolution, full color, 3D models and HDR photography.

Gone are the days of time consuming and potentially inaccurate measurements of your underwater assets with ROV calipers or video inspections. SeaVision® uses innovative processing techniques that combine steerable structure laser lines with photogrammetry to produce ultra-high-resolution, full color, and 3D scan of a million points in only 4 seconds, all on moving platforms.

The level of detail captured in a single sweep of your asset enables you to benchmark structural dimensions, deterioration, or weaknesses allowing you to better assess, plan, prepare, and predict when you will require upcoming maintenance, repair, life extension, or decommissioning; reducing your overall operational costs.

From the very beginning, SeaVision® was designed without requiring an expensive external navigation solution and complex/inflexible sensor navigation payload calibration.

SeaVision® Self-Reference Software estimates motion data from the sensors’ own imaging solution. It corrects motion during scans, aligns multiple consecutive scans and estimates vehicle motion during continuous profiling acquisition.

SeaVision® operates in an extendable configuration of computer vision cameras with embedded GPU and SSD storage, steerable or fixed laser lines, and a high-power LED.

SeaVision® applications are broad and include underwater 3D inspections of mooring chains, risers, pipelines, and other oil and gas, and offshore wind structures. 3D inspections also include ship hulls, marine ecology, marine archaeology, and much more.
