L3 Klein CHIRP Sub-bottom Profiler - 20/08/2007


L-3 Klein has launched a CHIRP Sub Bottom Profiler (SBP) attachment for the 3000 Model Side-scan Sonar. The older SBP was a single transducer 3.5kHz "pinger" and delivered satisfactory performance for a lightweight SBP, but lacked penetration and resolution. The new SBP has a two transmit transducers and linear hydrophone Mills Cross configuration for optimum "sea bottom footprint", as well as a CHIRP transmit pulse.

 

Deliveries of the new K-CHIRP Model 3310 Sub Bottom Profiler are based on feedback from the demos; this SBP will raise the performance bar for Sub Bottom Profilers at a competitive price.
