Modern Subsea Cable Systems
With modern subsea cable systems becoming increasingly sophisticated and their deployment, recovery and repair a more exacting science, there is a need for accurate subsea cable location. The TSS 350 Cable Survey System has been developed to meet this requirement in a compact, modular system that provides advanced features whilst remaining easy to use.
The TSS 350 System is designed specifically for the detection and survey of tone-carrying cables. Featuring a comprehensive software display and menu structure, real time information is presented in a clearer graphical format and provided as a digital output for storage and subsequent processing.This fully integrated system provides accurate survey data, verifying location and burial status of a cable as well as providing operators with fault location, vehicle skew angle and look-ahead information.
The TSS 350 provides today’s specialist operating companies with a System that will significantly improvetheir subsea operations allowing cable detection at greater burial depths for a variety of applications.
- Cable location data and depth of burial data
- Cable fault location
- Vehicle skew angle data
- Look-ahead information
- Tone discrimination
- Accurate and reliable survey data with quality control envelope
- Combination of advanced DSP technology and proven tone-detection techniques
- Tone frequency discrimination

Pipe & Cable Survey System
There are thousands of miles of pipes and cables beneath our oceans. Commercial, legal and operational considerations demand that these remain in good order. This requirement creates a constant need to verify location, condition and burial status - operations that are complicated by the ever-changing seabed topography.
There is a need for a system that can detect the presence of both pipes and cables, and can provide accurate and reliable survey data, which describes the position of these cables on or beneath the seabed. The system needs to be flexible in its range of uses and in the variety of vehicles on which it can be installed to complete survey work.
TSS is the world leader in developing and supplying technologies to meet these demands. Having developed the world's first commercial pulse induction pipe and cable survey system (TSS 340) in 1991, followed by the release of the TSS 350 AC tone cable survey system, TSS has gone from strength to strength and become the industry standard.
TSS technologies are proven in operation in some of the most exacting environments world-wide, and its equipment is established as the most accurate means of obtaining pipe and cable burial data.
- Suitable for pipe and cable tracking, burial and survey requirements
- Excellent detection and tracking performance
- High accuracy repeatable range data
- Pulse induction technology allows autonomous operation
- System design facilitates quick and easy mobilisation
- AC tone detection mode for measurement at increase burial depths
- Forward search mode for target location
