Glasgow Caledonian University and Shearwater Marine Services have developed a video and technical data transfer system that permits remote real-time video and data to be viewed and captured during subsea inspections. The system can instantly upload underwater images and technical information to a central database. It allows office-based decisions by viewing dives and communicating with dive sites in real time, which also improves reporting quality and provides enhanced data storage and retrieval. The service provides specific time-coded reference points and comments to be logged with stored video. Reports can be quickly produced to ensure real‑time decisions and damage assessment to prevent more problems.
