The Surveyor Interceptor Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) had its first commercial outing in the North Sea. The Cathx imaging system was used to capture high resolution UHD still images over 8,000 kilometres of pipelines at a range of 5m and at an average speed of 3.33 knots. The data acquired was of very high quality and available for processing and analysis continuously on the Edda Fonn support vessel.

In early 2015 Reach Subsea and MMT Sweden completed successful offshore tests on the new Surveyor Interceptor ROV and has recently completed its first commercial deployment.
Cathx Ocean were commissioned by MMT to provide a full imaging system including a dual mode laser profiler and still imaging system with synchronized lighting, lasers and pilot video camera. This system is capable of capturing UHD still images and high density 3D point cloud while travelling at speeds of 4knots at a range of 5m.
