Target Search

2015 • Western Approaches, English Channel • 100-300 meters

Odyssey team conducted a RESON 7125 multibeam survey and site inspections to identify an anomaly for a client, using ROV ZEUS on board the Odyssey Explorer.


Deep Sea Coral Survey

2015 • Gulf of Alaska • 600 meters

On behalf of a US government agency, a deep-sea coral survey on board the Dorado Discovery utilizing an ROV for inspections was conducted under a contract with Pelagic Research Services.


Repair Canyon Node

2015 • North Pacific Ocean • 1,500 meters

On behalf of a university and research program, Odyssey crew aboard the Dorado Discovery deployed an ROV for a barklay canyon node repair project under contract with Pelagic Research Services.


"Olympus" Project

2015 • North Atlantic Ocean • 350 meters

Identification and inspection of five target sites using the Odyssey Explorer and its technology including RESON 7160 multibeam, RESON 7125 multibeam, DSS2000 sub-bottom profiler and an ROV. 


SS Central America Shipwreck

2014 • Eastern Atlantic Ocean • 2,200 meters

Under contract for the Receiver of the shipwreck, Odyssey team employed an ROV to recover hundreds of coins and artifacts. A 161,000-square-meter, high-resolution video survey of the shipwreck and surrounding seabed using the RESON 7125 multibeam system was also completed. The project resulted in the recovery of more than 15,500 gold and silver coins, 45 gold bars and hundreds of other gold nuggets, gold dust, jewelry and artifacts.
