2G Robotics provides industry-leading laser scanning and imaging solutions that enables the OceanGate team to confidently complete subsea inspections, surveys, and mapping to ensure the preservation and security of the world’s critical infrastructure and marine environments. 2G’s systems capture millimetric resolution 3D models that provide a detailed baseline for monitoring and predicting changes in subsea assets and environments.

Founded in 2007 with a foundation of strong engineering and R&D expertise, the 2G’s technologies have been used for countless industrial and academic applications with deployments on all 7 continents from the Canadian Arctic to the Antarctic Lakes. By focussing on performance and reliability, 2G designs complete inspection solutions that ensure successful customer operations. This starts with product development and is carried through the integration process, deployment and operation, to data analysis and decision making.

2G’s target applications include offshore survey and inspection, mine countermeasures, port security, civil infrastructure, underwater archaeology, hydro electricity, marine research, and underwater exploration. The company’s systems have been used on many high-profile missions including Parks Canada’s Franklin Expedition, NOAA’s WWII U-Boat U-576, and the Costa Concordia Salvage Operation.

Cyclops 2 will carry the following 2G Robotics equipment:
  • ULS-500 PRO: Dynamic underwater laser scanner providing high-density point cloud data at up to a 20m range and 4500m depth.
  • 2G Observer Stills Camera: Ultra-sensitive stills camera producing crisp images at up to 12fps on fast moving vehicles.
  • 2G Ray LED: Light-weight and high efficiency LED light, delivering 18,250 lumen, can be easily grouped while retaining the ability to individually control, strobe duration and intensity.
