Titan Debris Discovery - Statement

In response to multiple media requests, we wish to give the following information:

We are aware that Pelagic Research Services do use Tritech Super Seaking Sonars on their Odysseus ROV which we understand was the vehicle used to locate debris from the Titan. We believe that the sonar was used for this specific ROV mission but do not have any further details at this time.

The team at Pelagic Research Services, and all others involved in this difficult recovery mission, worked tirelessly in some of the harshest conditions on the planet and have brought some closure to the families of the 5 lost passengers. We hope to gain a fuller understanding of the role the sonar played in this recovery mission so that we can learn from the user’s experience and continue to provide technology which makes working in water, particularly at great depths, safer.

Our thoughts go out to all those involved in this tragic event.
