Cathx systems allow data to be collected in a fraction of the time taken for traditional imaging systems and also provide the foundation on which Cathx automation technologies for unmanned and autonomous subsea operations are being built.

Our customers operate in a diverse number of markets including Offshore Energy, Environmental monitoring, Subsea Cables, Renewable energy, Deep water search and Salvage, Oceanographic and Subsea Archaeology. We are changing how they see underwater and how image and measurement data can be converted to reliable and actionable information at scale. .
