C- Surveyor III AUV Completes Noble Energy Project C & C Technologies completed a survey for Noble Energy utilizing its new C-Surveyor III AUV. The CSurveyor III completed the 81 nautical mile survey in the Gulf of Mexico with water depths ranging from 4100 to 4700 ft. C & C's new 4500-m C-Surveyor III AUV includes a multibeam echosounder, chirp side scan sonar, chirp sub-bottom profiler and CTD system. The customized sub-bottom profiler on board is outfitted with narrow transmit and receive beams to permit significantly deeper seabed penetration.
