Fugro GeoSurveys (Fugro) is a division of Fugro Canada Corp., headquartered in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador (NL), with a branch office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Fugro’s staff has had involvement with marine geosciences, geotechnical and survey support for marine technology and seabed mapping related industries in Eastern Canada for over 35 years. Fugro provides services to clients to assist with coastal and offshore developments, environmental studies, shipping and utility route developments, oil and gas exploration, renewable energy projects and a wide range of challenging projects.

Through this project Fugro will investigate the development of a novel subsea laser-based imaging system, able to operate in turbid water while on a moving platform, and capable of operating at a range greater than established systems. Development of an enhanced imaging system for use on a moving platform could provide a significant advancement in subsea inspection tools.
