Side-scan Sonar Demonstrations

During Ocean Business 2009, L-3 Klein will be running live demonstrations of the L-3 Klein System 5000 V-2. The demonstrations will be conducted on-board the Bill Conway on Tuesday, 31st March at 1530, Wednesday, 1st April at 1400 and Thursday, 2nd April at 1030.     The L-3 Klein System 5000 V2, with the added swath bathymetric capability, employs advanced Interferometric signal processing to produce simultaneous estimates of the seabed topography out to the full swath extent of the sonar, typically 10 to 12 times the overall altitude of the tow fish. This added seabed topographic measurement is post processed... (read more)

Versatile Side-scan Sonar

JW Fishers developed a side-scan towfish with adjustable transducers. The angle of the transducers can be changed by rotating the tail section of the towfish. This allows the sonar to scan the hull of a ship for attached contraband compartments and inspect the face of a dam, bridge, or oil platform for explosive devices. Already several departments have purchased these side scans with the new adjustable transducers including the Escambia Sheriff’s Office in Pensacola (FL, USA) and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office in Stillwater (MI, USA).  Jim Anderson of Washington County’s Water Recovery Unit says to be impressed with the...
