Broadband Multi-beam EchoSounder

R2Sonic have introduced their next generation SONIC 2024 Broadband Multi-beam echosounder system. The Sonic 2024 provides users maximum survey flexibility with selectable wideband frequencies from 200kHz to 400kHz from a vessel, ROV or AUV.   The system architecture with embedded processor and controller eliminates bulky processors and interface bottles on the vessel. Its low weight, volume and power requirements also make it an ideal system for incorporation to a wide variety of AUV platforms.   The focused 0.5° x 1° beam widths, coupled with ultra high 60kHz signal bandwidth provide unprecedented resolution over bottom features and imagery. The Sonic 2024... (read more)

Self- contained Submersible Echosounder

Biosonics has launched the DT-X Sub self-contained, programmable echosounder for scientific data collection. The unit integrates an echosounder, data storage and power systems in a compact and waterproof housing. It does not require cabling and is intended for monitoring and assessing aal types of organic organisms. The development of the device is driven by the demand for information about aquatic animal's temporal behaviour and distribution over time. This continuous, long-term observation requires the use of autonomous monitoring devices. The user can collect hydroacoustic data during day and night, and each tidal cycle for extended periods. It can be programmed for... (read more)

First Bluetooth Echosounder

The SonarMite Echo Sounder is the result of nearly two years research and development resulting in a series of equipment designed around the WinSTRUMENT concept and using the latest portable computers, integrated with new measurement technologies. The SonarMite extends the idea of a rugged design and minimalist interface to produce a 'Blue Box' system in which the user interface is provided by integrated software running on a portable computer connected via a Bluetooth link. The use of wireless technology enables the instrument to be waterproof and capable of use in a hostile environment, while the more sensitive computer features may... (read more)

First Parametric ROV Echosounder

Adaptation has begun of the Innomar Technologie SES-2000 parametric echosounder for use on ROVs. The advanced sounder functions with a pencil-thin acoustic beam that is a highly effective tool in penetrating mud and sediment to provide high resolution sub-bottom profiles. Aquadyne is project-managing the work of Innomar and DeepOcean in developing the first parametric echosounder capable of deployment on an ROV down to 2,000 metres. The development is being initiated as part of a contract that DeepOcean holds with Statoil and, as project manager, Aquadyne responsibilities also include raising finance for the work. Completion of the project is scheduled for... (read more)

Vegetation-classifying Echosounder

Having first been presented during a preview of an entirely new technology at the Oceanology International (OI) exhibition held in London, UK, in March of this year, the BioSonics MX Aquatic Habitat Echosounder has now been released. It is a complete hardware-software solution for mapping and quantitative assessment of submerged plants, substrate classification and bathymetry. The MX utilises scientific single beam sonar housed in a rugged Pelican Case with an integrated DGPS and storage for the transducer, cable, and fittings. The MX comes complete with Visual Habitat MX software, a powerful new data-processing and visualisation tool developed specifically for the... (read more)

Echosounder for Asian Carp Research

The invasive Asian Carp is threatening the Great Lakes' estimated USD7 billion fishery. The Illinois Natural History Survey (INHS, USA) is to contribute solving this biological problem using a DT-X digital echo sounder from BioSonics. Measurements facilitate to better understand how far the carp have advanced and the extent of the problem. Matt Diana, Fisheries Aquatic Research Biologist and project leader from INHS, chose a BioSonics echosounder based on its capabilities in accurately assessing fish populations. The organisation already has experience working with BioSonics equipment and both state and provincial agencies across the Great Lakes have adopted the products as... (read more)

Knudsen Echosounder for US Navy

Knudsen Engineering Ltd is to fulfil a volume order from the US Naval Oceanographic Office at the Stennis Space Center (Mississippi), including eight 320BR deepwater echosounder plus spares kits. These instruments are two-channel (3.5/12kHz), rack-mounted, high-power systems used for full ocean depth survey. Using a Windows interface data display, the systems incorporate chirp-and-correlation processing to achieve low noise and high-resolution sub-bottom profiles. (read more)

Kongsberg Launches New Multibeam Echosounder

Kongsberg Maritime has launched an advanced MK-II version of its de facto industry-standard EM 710 multibeam echosounder. With the EM 710 MK-II, the company aims to set new standards for seabed survey by increasing range and swath coverage over the original EM 710 by up to 40%. Like its predecessor, The EM 710 MK-II is a high to very-high-resolution seabed mapping system capable of meeting all relevant survey standards. The EM 710 MK-II has a maximum range of approximately 2,800m, a significant improvement over the original version’s 2,000m, while swath coverage has increased to 3,000m from 2,000m. This will result... (read more)

Compact CEE LINE Echosounder Kit

Packaged into a complete mounting kit for basic hydrographic surveys, the CEE Hydrosystems CEE LINE is aimed at land surveyors wishing to undertake small projects. With the CEE LINE, a rudimentary echosounder for a basic survey is not needed. The CEE LINE has a simple communication interface and does not ever need charging courtesy of its USB connection. The ‘sonar on a stick’ concept has been around for a few years, and some of the equipment used has been around even longer. The CEE LINE offers a new approach to this survey setup. With no battery or Bluetooth required, the... (read more)
