EM2040 Multibeam Goes Compact

Kongsberg Maritime is introducing the EM 2040 Compact, a multibeam echo sounder for high-resolution mapping and inspection applications, during Ocean Business 2013, from 9 to 11 April 2013 in Southampton, UK. Based on the EM 2040 multibeam, the EM 2040C makes detailed surveys of shallow water possible using small boats and launches. Kongsberg Maritime will also offer another variant, the EM2040CX for use on AUVs, ROVs and other vessels of opportunity.    Available in single or dual head configurations, the EM 2040C is the natural successor to Kongsberg Maritime’s EM 3002. The EM 2040C is to offer significantly improved performance... (read more)

LinkQuest Enters Multibeam Echosounder Market

LinkQuest, USA, recently added a multibeam echosounder product into its family of acoustic instruments. The EchoSweep 300 multibeam echosounder is a high-resolution, highly robust and cost-effective swath bathymetric system for mapping the sea floor, inland waterways and reservoirs. The EchoSweep 300 system is capable of reaching up to 280 metres in range with 140 beams. It operates at 260kHz and has a swath coverage of 140 degrees. The EchoSweep 300 multibeam echosounder maps the sea floor by a sweep of very narrow acoustic beams. It can map the sea floor faster and in more detail than a single-beam echosounder, thereby significantly... (read more)

Multibeam Echosounder for Medium to Deep Water

The RESON SeaBat 7160 multibeam echosounder has been developed for marine exploration, seafloor habitat mapping and hydrographic charting in medium to deep water (3 to 3,000m). Equipped with X-Range, it provides improved system immunity to external noise. The system can operate in water depths of between 3 to 3,000 metres, offering up to 512 high-density equidistant beams with a selection of coverage modes including features such as variable and steerable swath, together with real-time pitch and roll stabilisation maximising useable swath and performance. The SeaBat 7160 also provides the collection of high-density water-column data all wrapped up in a processing... (read more)

Z-Boat with MB1 Multibeam Demonstrated

Teledyne Oceanscience, in partnership with Teledyne Odom Hydrographic, unveiled a demonstration of a multibeam echosounder-equipped Z-Boat 1800 autonomous remote survey boat at the U.S. Hydro 2015 Conference in National Harbor, MD, USA. With the Teledyne Odom MB1 on board, up to 512 beams may be configured in a 120deg swath, representing a potentially enormous improvement in data availability versus the previous single-beam sonar options. Conference attendees were able to drive the Z-Boat using the manual shore control system and simultaneously observe their survey tracks and bathymetry data on the shore PC. With on-board computing powering the multibeam echosounder and HYPACK®... (read more)

WASSP Launches New Rapid Deployment Multibeam Sounder

WASSP Multibeam has launched its new rapid deployment multibeam sounder – the W3 Rapid Deployment System (RDS). Revealed at the recently held Pacific Expo 2019 in Sydney, Australia, W3 RDS has been designed for navies, maritime police and search & rescue organizations for use where depths are unknown and to find safe navigation routes for larger vessels. When a fixed transducer installation in a small vessel such as a tender isn’t always practical, the W3 RDS has been designed around a portable Carbonfibre Mast that includes a transducer, motion sensor and satellite compass. This allows operators to deploy the unit... (read more)
