Underwater Archaeological Explorations

We combine archaeological history, science and technology for the recovery, study, classification and dating of submerged heritage.

We use Robots and Side Scan Sonar, one of the most effective tools for underwater exploration of large areas, capturing detailed images of any object on the seabed even if the water is somewhat murky.
We have special underwater equipments:
  • sonnars
