CSurvey is a semi-automatioc inspection unit for underwater structures  and ship hulls. For the inspection task multimodal sensor data are classified by machine learning methods. The sensor data are generated by a camera system, a laser projection unit and a multi-beam echo sounder. CSurvey is a flexible system which can be mounted on different host systems and can be adapted to several operation scenarios. It is intended to be the basis for many applications and products in the area of underwater inspection. Furthermore, it can be used in diverse areas such as production, logistics or security.
