The ScanFish Katria is an intelligent wide-sweep underwater remotely operated towed vehicle (ROTV) solution for time-efficient magnetometer/UXO survey operations. As it comes with high-sensitivity underwater magnetometers for maximum target detection efficiency it is an effective tool for detection of sub-bottom magnetic anomalies including UXO.

The terrain-following operation mode of the intelligent ROTV ensures that it maintains wide and dense coverage at a fixed height as close to the seabed as possible depending on the topography. This equals high-quality data. Magnetometer quality and performance are key to successful subsea surveys. Therefore, the magnetometer type included in the ScanFish Katria is the Geometrics G-882 Marine Magnetometer. This is a high-end yet low-cost solution and the most used in the industry, and a perfect fit for subsea UXO detection. As the ScanFish Katria is towed at a distance, any type of vessel can be used without risking the survey data being affected by its magnetic signature.
