Cutting edge camera system delivering photo-real 3D models with sub-mm accuracy, enabling you to make digital twins of your assets and precise measurements.

A revolutionary and forefront design in robotics, the Abyss proprietary Lantern Eye S camera system provides sub-mm accurate, contactless measurements of subsea assets and produces accurately detailed 3D models that empowers you to make any measurement required during and post inspection. Work from a predictive maintenance position by experiencing high prevision temporal tracking of the deterioration of an asset and its comparison with its as-built state.

Photogrammetry Camera System

An intelligently compact, state of the art form-factor stereo photogrammetry camera system and processing pipeline which is mountable on both inspection and workclass ROVs. The systems can be integrated on a range of ROVs within a shift.

High Fidelity Sub-mm Imaging

High-fidelity inspection imagery and sub-mm accurate, contactless measurements of subsea assets including mooring chains, flex joints, risers, clamps, anodes and platform nodes.

3D Mapping

Abyss Lantern Eye technology replaces rudimentary, unreliable and inaccurate mechanical calipers, saves vessel/ROV time, delivers sub-mm photo-realistic 3D models and empowers a client to make any measurement they require during and post inspection.

Sub-mm measurements

Measure subsea assets to sub-mm accuracy to create lifelike digital assets for remote inspection

3D Mapping

Recreate large scale assets as interactive 3d models with incredible accuracy


Abyss Lantern Eye is revolutionising outdated industry processes by replacing them with advanced robotics and cutting-edge technology that supports you and your business in cutting costs, overheads, time, and improved workflow. Features of this forefront technology include:

Innovative Imagining – Provides sub-mm accurate, contactless measurements of subsea assets including mooring chains, flex joints, risers, clamps, anodes and platform nodes.

Digital-Twin Replication – The technology delivers a complete digital-twin of the assets inspected, allowing direct interaction with the asset and obtain their own sub-mm measurements as required, including area and volumetric measurements

Express Data Capture – critical elements such as a mooring chain link can take as little as 10-30 minutes, depending on size. The data processing pipeline then allows rapid onsite measurement of these elements as they are inspected in under 30 minutes

Engineered Analysis – The system receives collected data and feeds a much richer engineering analysis and condition assessment.

Revolutionary Deliverables – The system delivers sub-mm, photo-realistic 3D models, combining high precision 3D spatial data with colour information which laser based systems cannot deliver for improved condition assessment.

Predictive Maintenance – High Prevision temporal tracking of the deterioration of an asset and its comparison with its as-built state. This enables better maintenance forward planning and remaining life estimation.
