Subsea Expertise at Baker Marine Solutions

Baker Subsea Solutions (BSS) stands at the forefront of underwater inspection services in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and internationally. We specialize in a range of sectors including oil and gas, renewables, marine, and infrastructure inspection projects. Our capabilities are enhanced by a robust fleet of inspection-class ROVs, along with skilled pilots and technicians, enabling us to perform underwater inspections down to depths of 600 meters.

In collaboration with Vaarst, BSS also brings cutting-edge real-time subsea 3D imagery and metrology to our clients. This innovative approach not only saves time and money, but also equips asset integrity groups with advanced predictive maintenance capabilities.

SubSlam Technology

Through our partnership with Vaarst, BSS is able to offer real-time subsea 3D imagery and metrology, saving clients time and money while providing their asset integrity groups with predictive maintenance capabilities.

SubSLAM tracks relative position accurately without relying on any external sensors. This means construction and metrology projects can be initiated without the need for COMPATTs or time-intensive LBL array setups. Our SubSLAM System can replace INS or other metrology techniques, completing measurements in a fraction of the time.

What’s more, our live 3D data can be streamed to any device anywhere in the world over VSAT satellite bandwidths using Vaarst’s Data Platform.

Live 3D Streaming Benefits and Features
  • Shorter project durations, reducing vessel days 
  • Enables Machine Learning and AI at the edge 
  • Perfect relative positioning without USBL, LBL or INS 
  • Live 3D reconstructions with proven mm accuracy 
  • Instant 3D data streamed to any device anywhere 
  • No additional sensors or scale bars required
  • 4K machine vision sensors to future proof data collection

Inspection Scopes

Our background is rooted in UWILD inspections, but it doesn’t stop there. We also offer a wide range of services including dock surveys, hull and asset integrity inspections, bridge surveys, tank inspections, free-span analysis, touchdown monitoring, installation verification, and more.
