The Leading Edge of Value-Based Subsea Inspection

01 November, 2017


We have experienced a tremendous rate of development in technological capability which has enhanced the efficiency of our operations. These include a significant decline in the cost of data processing and storage,
miniaturisation of subsea sensors, increased computing capacity, quick, reliable, wireless communications, increased utilization of subsea robotics and sophisticated data analytics and artificial intelligence. However,
within a cost constrained environment stakeholders must drive development towards a value based solution

The Society for Underwater Technology, The Hydrographic Society in Scotland and The International Marine Contractors Association invite you to our popular annual joint seminar.
