NETmc Marine Digital Dive Log (DDL)

Old DDL_main

The Digital Dive Log (DDL) is an interactive electronic dive log for use with the NETmc Marine DVR. The software runs on the DVR itself and automates the input of data normally recorded during ROV and diving operations.

Different data entries can be set up for each project, with common project information only required to be entered once in the configuration file. Data specific to the dive is entered in a separate configuration file. This could include a list of tasks to be performed, video files and stills taken during the operation. There are 22 confugrable buttons each of which populates the data but which can also control the media. For example, you can configure one button to be called "anode Wastage" and when yoy click that button you can select for  Clip or a still to be assocciated to the data entry. The system can generate various reports from simple Excel spreadsheets to HTML reports with hyperlinks to the media.


NETmc Marine E-Inspect

Created specifically for the Hess annual inspection program in 2004, and completely re-written in 2019, E-Inspect is a database driven inspection tool designed to work with NETmc Marine DVRs The software is taken

offshore with a pre-programmed list of components and structures which have to be inspected, along with notes and supporting information (drawings / photos) to aid the inspection.


A 'task complete' note in the list allows the inspection coordinator to see that all components have been inspected and that the job is complete thus reducing the risk of missing items from the inspection.

Any number of projects can be setup with perhaps a different site being allocated a different project.


When a component has been selected, the reporting form is displayed. It gives the engineer a summary of the component, the inspection method and access to any relevant documents. The form has the recording controls for the DVRi and space for the engineer to write comments. Any anomalies can then be recorded separately using the video clip function.

Video file names and paths are automatically updated based on the component being inspected for example, the video file will contain the component indent + time + date, e.g. PL515_56_176_17-10-2005_19-13-02.mpg.

An integrated overlay management tool will not only provide running headers (time / date / client name / job title etc) but will be dynamically updated with the component ID tag of the current item. There is also a free text tool which allows the users to flash up additional information on the video screen.
