Measurable insight
for your subsea projects

ROV3D is the fastest, easiest tool to get 3D answers subsea

Right Tool, Right Job

Stay on schedule and on budget

Relying on a “best-guess” isn’t the ideal option for most projects. ROV3D gives your team measurable, real-time confirmation that tasks are completed to spec.

  • Take centimetrically accurate measurements in real-time
  • Monitor visual coverage spatially
  • Share 3D results without post-processing


Get quick answers to tough problems

Some projects don’t come with a best practices guide. ROV3D helps you plan with confidence by delivering timely, relevant information for your unique requirements.

  • Get two SD cameras to the worksite for measurable results
  • Generate 3D data dynamically when station keeping is a challenge or the structure of interest is moving
  • Align and compare ROV3D models to monitor change over time

How ROV3D Works

ROV3D can calibrate most SD or HD cameras to generate 3D data in real-time. After calibration, ROV3D uses stereo computer vision to match
over 10 million points per second to reconstruct a 3D model that updates in real-time as new features are identified.

Watch ROV3D in Action

See how you can visualize, measure, and share information that is important to your project. 

ROV3D Models

ROV3D models provide < 1cm3 resolution and can be exported from the topside unit, without post processing, in .xyz, .obj, and .u3d formats.

ROV3D Clients

ROV3D has been delivering real-time 3D answers to global oil and gas companies since 2016.

Easy integration for your subsea project

ROV3D helps you avoid the operational overhead of traditional 3D technologies.


Mount two SD or HD cameras side-by-side on any class of ROV. The ROV3D topside unit manages the rest.​


Complete online training in two hours. Real-time feedback helps ensure quality data capture offshore.


Follow normal general visual inspection procedures.
3D models generate dynamically as subsea video is collected.


Analyze and interact with 3D models live. Export and share results without post-processing.

About Whitecap Scientific

Our story began with a butter knife, duct tape, and a busted subsea robot. While conducting subsea surveys in the Baltic, the robotic sonar system our founders were operating detached from its crane hook. 

After hours of watching ROV pilots try to recover a multimillion-dollar piece of kit by aligning a butter knife with a lift shackle, they vowed to make it easier to solve complex three dimensional problems underwater.

Now, thousands of development hours later, the Whitecap Scientific team is dedicated to giving subsea professionals the real-time spatial awareness they need.

ROV3D doesn’t just give offshore teams a real-time 3D perspective, it unlocks the efficiencies and confidence that comes from giving every subsea stakeholder fast, easy to access 3D data.
