Within the NORBIT Group, the business unit Oceans is formed to inclusively focus the capabilities of NORBIT Subsea and NORBIT Aptomar extended with products and solutions for the market fields Aquaculture and Defence.

OCEANS – Technology, products, solutions and services in the full “Ocean Space” domain.



NORBIT Subsea specializes in ultra-compact wideband multibeam sonars for subsea and surface platforms.

Bathymetric Sonars

Systems to measure the underwater environment for hydrography, inspection and engineering surveys. Processed multibeam data produces charts of the seabed, and 3D imaging of the water column.

Forward-looking Sonars

High resolution sonars with live, real-time imagery are designed to detect obstacles in front of vessels and underwater vehicles such as ROVs and AUVs.

Integrated Bathymetric Sonars

Multibeam survey solutions offer tightly coupled system integration, enabling high resolution survey data benefiting from an inertial system technology in a small form factor.

NORBIT Subsea designs and develops wideband multibeam sonars for hydrographic applications, forward-looking applications, as well as advanced subsea solutions such as leakage detection.  Our technologies are based on the latest in analog and digital signal processing, and our products provide wide coverage monitoring combined with high sensitivity and accuracy.
