Our story

GeoAcoustics Ltd has been a partner for the offshore energy, subsea, and marine survey sectors since 1978. Through this time we have had two different corporate owners but today we are an independent company dedicated to ensuring we provide the best technologies and services to our customers all over the world. Further, today we run a highly sustainable operation, and are on the road to net zero at our HQ in Great Yarmouth, UK.

Our technology

Well-established as a provider of field-proven bathymetric sonars, side scan sonar and sub-bottom profilers, our technology is as depndable as it is precise. GeoAcoustics Ltd has forged its own technology path, using interferometry for accurate seabed mapping, developing Artificial Intelligence for faster data processing and unlocking new applications with form factors designed to optimise performance.

GeoAcoustics Ltd products are available through our extensive global partner network. We have selected the best, most experienced marine survey and subsea specialist partners to provide sales and service across the world, ensuring that you are never far from an expert to guide you towards the right system and configuration, install your products and help you out should you need trained and professional support.
