Key Equipment and Vessels

Jet Ski with Singlebeam and Multibeam

Our Jet Ski is equipped with the state-of-the-art singlebeam and multibeam echosounders.

Its notable convenience and accessibility, especially in comparison to larger vessels, enables us to efficiently cover expansive bodies of water, making it particularly well-suited to surveying shallow waters, and surf zones.


Boat with Multibeam

Our boats are equipped with a cutting-edge multibeam echosounder ensuring unparalleled precision for all high resolution bathymetric surveys.

We utilise Norbit MBE which not only exceeds the International Hydrographic Organisation (IHO) standards for multibeam data capture, but also stands out for its versatility and accuracy.

Multibeam and LiDAR Combination Scanners

At Usher and Company we harness the capabilities of LiDAR technology through both terrestrial and arial scanners. Our Riegal VZ4001 laser scanner and drone featuring the Riegl miniVUX, allows us to survey and generate high-definition point cloud seamlessly.

These scans can be paired with the multibeam capture to supply the client with an above and below water level pointcloud.

With 25 years of experience in land surveying, we take great pride in the enduring relationships we have developed over the years.
