Portable Sediment Imaging Camera


Since 1974 Ocean Instruments has built numerous sediment profiling cameras for seafloor research. The portable sediment profile camera is designed to be used in either a frame or placed in the sediment using a push pole. The camera images the top 10 cm of the seabed. The portable system is operable to depths of 200 meters remotely in a frame or to 5 meters with real-time live view by push pole. The unit takes both still shots and video and can be programmed prior to deployment.

Unit includes:
– 5 meter carbon fiber collapsible pole
– 8 meter real-time cable (can be extended to 300 meters)
– topside control box
– spares
– charger system
