Long-range Ultra-high-resolution Sidescan Sonar for Mine-like Objects

EdgeTech, USA, has introduced the 2205 AUV-based sonar system. The Teledyne Gavia AUVs delivered recently to the Polish Ministry of Defence for mine countermeasures (MCMs) were equipped with EdgeTech 600/1600kHz simultaneous dual-frequency sidescan sonar payloads. The very-high-frequency EdgeTech systems were selected for their long-range detection and ultra-high-resolution classification capability for MLOs (mine-like objects). The EdgeTech 2205 classification frequency of 1600kHz is capable of producing near-photographic-quality images of targets making MLO target classification very easy as shown on the MLO sonar image with this article. Other 2205 attributes that contributed to the selection of the EdgeTech systems were low power, small... (read more)

Side-scan for Two USACE Districts

International Industries and EdgeTech Marine (USA) have taken orders for model 4125 side-scan sonar this month from two US Army Corps of Engineers Districts:Seattle, Washington District and Norfolk, Virginia District   These systems bring a new wave of expertise into the USACE Hydrographic efforts for high frequency, shallow water. The EdgeTech side-scan sonar provide a unique advantage over the conventional, heavy weight, deep side-scan sonar by combining EdgeTechs' very high frequency with simultaneous dual frequency recording technologies into a very light weight unit.   EdgeTech engineering has produced many new side-scan sonar of late including the 4125 (400/1250 kHz) low...

HIPS and SIPS Supports EdgeTech’s Metrics

A quality control and filtering metric has been made available for EdgeTech and CARIS users. With their software release CARIS HIPS and SIPS supports the EdgeTech 6205’s real time range and angle uncertainties which help significantly cut down on processing time. The EdgeTech 6205 is a Multi Phase Echo Sounder (MPES) that uses EdgeTech’s bathymetric technology to provide an enhanced and fully integrated bathymetry and dual frequency side scan sonar system. The range and angle uncertainties are commonly used to quantify how accurate soundings are and to determine the true depth at any point in a survey area from the... (read more)

Combined Tri-frequency Sidescan Sonar, Sub-bottom Profiling and Bathymetry System

EdgeTech has announced the release of a new towed sonar system providing tri-frequency sidescan sonar, enhanced sub-bottom profiling and MPES bathymetry: the 2300 system. The unit combines EdgeTech’s line of sidescan sonar, sub-bottom profilers and MPES bathymetry into one fully integrated system. The 2300 system has been developed for deep-water combined sonar operations and provides many enhancements to traditional systems. Utilising EdgeTech’s proven Full Spectrum CHIRP technology to provide crisp, high-resolution imagery, surveyors can choose to operate any two frequencies simultaneously from the versatile tri-frequency system. Sub-bottom profiler capabilities have been expanded on the 2300 and includes the ability to... (read more)

Boone County Water Rescue’s Sidescan Sonar Immediately Effective

EdgeTech, USA, recently delivered a 4125 sidescan sonar system to Boone County Water Rescue and the system was immediately deployed in the region. Upon completion of the training session, the Boone County Water Rescue team immediately started utilising the system for weekly bridge and pier surveys. Furthermore, very shortly after receiving the new equipment, Boone County Water Rescue was called on to find a missing person in a nearby waterway. Using the new equipment, the team brought emotional but important closure for family members. Boone County Water Rescue, established in 1967 and located in Burlington, KY, USA, has a long and successful history... (read more)

Tri-frequency Sidescan Sonar System

EdgeTech, USA, has released an AUV-based sonar system that provides three sidescan sonar frequencies as well as subbottom profiling capabilities in one compact and integrated system. One of the recently delivered EdgeTech 2205 tri-frequency systems was configured to operate at 230kHz, 540kHz and 1,600kHz. This configuration provides more flexibility for AUV operators and allows them to collect different sets of data for different missions without reconfiguration. The lower frequency provides a 450 metre swath while the higher frequency is suited for high resolution operations. The 1,600kHz frequency can provide across-track resolution of less than one centimetre. In the middle, the... (read more)

High-speed, High-resolution Sonar for MMT Surveyor Interceptor

EdgeTech, USA, recently delivered a new sonar system for the high-speed MMT Surveyor Interceptor ROV (SROV). The EdgeTech system is a dual-frequency sidescan sonar operating at 600/1600kHz combined with a sub-bottom profiler operating at 1-10kHz. The uniqueness comes in the custom multi-pulse (MP) and dynamically focused (DF) capabilities of the sidescan sonar. To ensure customers can take full advantage of the high-speed capabilities of the MMT Surveyor Interceptor ROV, the sonar needed to be able to produce high-quality images while also operating at higher speeds than typically seen with work-class or inspection-class ROVs. Conventional sidescan sonar systems are limited in... (read more)
