INSPIRE’s innovative Forward Scouting approach allows us to rapidly assess benthic habitats along cable routes and within offshore wind farms. We can mobilize our equipment anywhere in the world and deliver results the same day using cutting-edge technology developed and deployed by INSPIRE staff for over 30 years. Forward Scouting, the use of Sediment Profile Imaging (SPI) in conjunction with multibeam echosounder mapping optimizes cable-route selection and site planning prior to mobilizing expensive survey teams for multi-disciplined geophysical spreads.
INSPIRE's unique visualization capabilities quickly deliver industry-leading results that can be interpreted in moments. Let key decision-makers click and quickly see with INSPIRE's interactive, intuitive maps. High-quality data delivered in weeks; discerned in moments.
INSPIRE Environmental is a leader in marine assessment and monitoring, specializing in the collection, analysis, integration and interpretation of benthic habitat data. INSPIRE’s founders developed SPI methodology to conduct seafloor assessments in support of offshore development and benthic habitat mapping. INSPIRE scientists design and conduct studies to evaluate potential impacts of marine activities, including offshore wind development, on the benthic community, fish, and marine mammals. Our staff of 20 field scientists, marine biologists, geologists, engineers, data analysts, and statisticians provide high quality assessments and expert facilitation for government agencies and commercial firms around the world.
