CEE-USV – Next Generation Unmanned Survey Boat. The CEE-USV demonstration video introduces the remotely-operated hydrographic survey boat that is a genuine field survey tool and not a science project. Minimize mobilization time, eliminate field troubleshooting multiple on-board components. Simply turn on and start surveying.
CEE HydroSystems – Hydrographic Survey Experts. The compact and waterproof hydrographic survey equipment from CEE HydroSystems is used on shallow water survey boats, inshore Jon boats, jet skis, and remotely-operated survey boats (USVs) around the world. Watch single beam echo sounder and GPS / GNSS solutions for a streamlined and efficient survey process.
Setting up the RTK CEESCOPE™. There is no faster and easier way to mobilize for high quality, small boat hydrographic surveys – shown here in 4X motion. With the complete survey system packaged in one compact and waterproof enclosure, simply connect the transducer and GNSS antenna and then the laptop and start surveying. With a built-in UHF radio to connect to your RTK base station, even the GNSS correction data is taken care of. Reduce mob time and maximize survey productivity with the CEESCOPE™ echo sounder system.
Dredging Survey in the Maldives. The dual frequency CEESCOPE 33/200 kHz is used on a small boat shallow water survey for a hydrographic sand survey as part of a dredging project. With minimal setup requirements, the CEESCOPE™ is ideal for use on boats where traveling light is important.
Extreme Shallow Survey – 200 kHz. The GoPro underwater footage coupled with real time HYPACK® bathymetry shows the flexibility of the CEESCOPE™ and CEE ECHO™ echo sounder in very shallow water. No need to worry about losing the bottom track or following a double echo trace, even in under 15cm (6″) water depth. Watch for the small pipe that is picked out on the echogram.
US Marine Corps Survey Program. United States Marines from the 2’nd Intelligence Batallion based at Camp Lejeune discuss their shallow water, rapid mobilization survey capability.
See what Really Lies Below. Watch HYPACK® data acquisition and simultaneous GoPro footage in a lake with heavy sub aquatic vegetation. Unlike “black box” or “digital depth” echo sounders, the CEESCOPE™ and CEE ECHO™ provide a detailed view of what really lies beneath the surface.
CEEPULSE™ Survey. Sometimes there might be a difference between what is possible in the real world and what is claimed on sonar equipment specifications. Not with the 0.3m – 100m CEEPULSE™. Here is the evidence. Especially in shallow water, where other options may become unreliable, the CEEPULSE™ will offer reliable bottom tracking that will maximize data quality and minimize post processing edits.
Extreme Shallow Survey – 33/200 kHz. Even when using the 33/200 kHz dual frequency transducer option for the CEESCOPE™ or CEE ECHO™ echo sounder in very shallow water, both channel traces are able to keep tracking accurately, meaning less editing of your data after the survey is finished.
The Dual Frequency CEE ECHO™ Surveying Silver Springs, Ocala Florida with an Extreme Vegetation Challenge. With almost total sub aquatic vegetation coverage over most of the Silver River near the spring head in Ocala, obtaining accurate bathymetry is practically impossible. Standard 200 kHz echo sounders simply register echo returns from the top of the thick vegetation, as much as 2m (6.5 ft) above the real bottom. Using the CEE ECHO™, operating in dual frequency mode WaterCube were able to gather bathymetry and use HYPACK® digital echogram post processing to identify the plant canopy.
The CEE JET™ PWC Survey System A turnkey personal watercraft “Jet Ski” survey system for near shore and surf zone hydrographic surveying. The CEE JET™ has a fully integrated CEESCOPE™ 200 kHz single beam echo sounder and RTK GNSS, on-board computer running HYPACK® acquisition software, UHF radio modem for differential corrections, and waterproof handlebar display.
The CEE JET™ PWC Survey System for Marine Science. In the surf zone and shallow water, the flexibility of a PWC JetSki single beam survey platform makes it sometimes the only method to conduct bathymetry surveys important for marine science investigations, remediation or beach nourishment projects.
The CEESCOPE-USV™ Dockside Demo. The unique built-in long range data telemetry adds another dimension to CEESCOPE™ survey applications. Use the CEESCOPE-USV™ echo sounder and GPS surveying system on a remotely-operated survey boat (USV) or a regular manned boat for a complete shallow water survey solution.
The CEE ECHO™ in Action on a Remotely Operated USV Drone Survey Boat Environmental consultants NewFields use a dual frequency CEE ECHO™ for surveys using a remotely-operated boat. The USV is often used on tailings ponds where clear delineation of the mudline is possible using the high definition echogram output from the single beam echo sounder on-board. The real time HYPACK® echogram display and an edited mine tailings pond survey are shown.
HYPACK® Data Acquisition – Monitoring Sub Aquatic Vegetation Height. The CEESCOPE™ and CEE ECHO™ digital echogram can be used to track the height and coverage of vegetation. With the true bottom clearly visible on the echogram, the echo sounder digitizer is set to track the top of the plants in real time and a simple digitization process may be used to record the true bottom in post processing. After editing, plant canopy height and extent may be easily and accurately derived from HYPACK® bathymetry data.
HYPACK® Data Acquisition with Single and Dual Frequency Operation. The CEESCOPE™ and CEE ECHO™ echogram may be viewed in HYPACK® for real time quality control. With automatic bottom tracking modifying the sonar characteristics to maintain a good bottom track, the differences between 33 kHz (low) and 200 kHz (high) frequency data is highlighted with a survey section over a loose unconsolidated silt bottom showing the divergence between high and low channel results.
