Maritime Heritage Surveys

Maritime Heritage Surveys

The use of an ROV lowers site monitoring inspection costs, whilst reducing inspection risk by alleviating the need for dive teams.  All site surveys and inspections are performed following the Commonwealth Underwater Cultural Heritage Act 2018, and/or relevant Australian state and territory cultural heritage legislation.  The ROV Services Australia team can provide detailed underwater cultural heritage assessments and survey reports on underwater cultural heritage sites, site features, and site environment along with the capacity to collect 4K imagery and the ability to produce 3D site models.

Qualified and Experienced

All ROV Services Australia underwater cultural heritage assessments and surveys are conducted by our qualified maritime archaeologist, James Parkinson. With 25 years working in the maritime heritage sector throughout Australia, James brings an enormous amount of experience to every underwater cultural heritage assessment and survey.

Deep wreck inspections

With advancements in diving technology allowing recreational divers to dive deeper depths a significant number of shipwrecks around Australia are being located beyond the capacity of Government authorities to inspect. As these sites require cultural heritage management the ROV Services Australia team can provide safe and efficient inspection services of these sensitive underwater cultural heritage assets.
