Forward-looking Sonar Simulator

BlueView Technologies recently teamed with Marine Simulation to develop a sonar simulator based on BlueView's line of forward looking multibeam imaging sonars. The new computer-based simulator is designed to be used with ROVsim Pro, Marine Simulation's flagship undersea ROV simulator and will be offered as an optional module later this quarter.   With the addition of BlueView's imaging sonar, ROV pilots can now quickly learn how to navigate in low visibility conditions using the sonar's real-time feedback.  This technique of ‘flying-by-sonar' can dramatically decrease an ROV's downtime resulting from poor water conditions. ROVsim simulators are currently being used by ROV... (read more)

Large Imaging Sonar Order

BlueView Technologies has received an order for one hundred (100) high-resolution P Series Imaging Sonar systems. In the coming months BlueView will deliver the compact, low-power 900kHz imaging sonar systems to VideoRay for integration onto their microROV systems providing their customers with real-time underwater search and navigation capabilities.     BlueView’s P Series Imaging Sonar are available with 3 field-of-view options – 45º, 90º, and 130º (the widest available), and operate in low or zero visibility conditions minimizing downtime due to water clarity conditions. Engineered to operate while in motion or from a stationary position, BlueView 2D Imaging Sonar enhance... (read more)

Compact Side-scan Sonar

Tritech has launched the StarFish 450H, a hull-mounted side scan sonar which produces spectacular images of the seabed. The compact, slim-line sonar design combined with flexible mounting bracket can be fixed on to any vessel and allows you to monitor the seabed for interesting targets during every journey.     With hull-mounted systems there’s no need to worry about snagging a towing cable when surveying in shallow or high traffic waters, making it very simple to operate. Its ease of use makes it an ideal system for anyone needing to capture digital images of the seabed on their own. Utilising... (read more)

CHIRP Sidescan Sonar System

Falmouth Scientific, Inc. (FSI) has reached into its well of experience and knowledge to develop the HMS-624 digital CHIRP sidescan sonar system offering dual simultaneous 100/400KHz frequency operation. The HMS-624 provides imaging capabilities for deep and shallow water applications. The twofish electronics incorporate FSI’s CHIRPceiver 24-bit CHIRP signal processing, which results in very-high-resolution sidescan data at towing depths of up to 2,000 metres. The Topside Power/Data Multiplexer Interface is packaged in a standard 2U 19” rack mount enclosure and provides a 4Mb/s DSL connection for the towfish and a standard Ethernet connection for the data processing computer. The system uses... (read more)

Sentinel Sonar Order

The US Naval Underwater Warfare Center (NUWC) in Rhode Island (USA) has placed a contract with Sonardyne Inc., Houston (TX, USA) for the supply of an additional Sentinel Intruder Detection Sonar system.     The announcement follows the completion of rigorous acceptance and readiness trials by NUWC in 2008 when Sentinel was shown to meet the US Navy's performance requirements for diver detection. The latest contract adds an additional Sentinel to the new Integrated Swimmer Defence System. This is being led by the Program Executive Office, Littoral Mine Warfare (PEO-LMW - PMS480) and the first Sentinel was delivered to NUWC... (read more)

Side-Scan Sonar Deliveries

The MacArtney Group has during the winter and early spring delivered 6 EdgeTech 4200-FS side scan sonar systems in different countries. Three complete 300/600 kHz systems plus spares and one spare towfish has been delivered to The Royal Danish Administration of Navigation & Hydrography. This order also included 3 x 300 meter tow cable. One 4200 side scan system was sold to Geoconsult A/S in Norway for ROV installation and another AUV type 4200 system was delivered to Noordhoek, Holland, in connection with their purchase of 2 FOCUS-2 ROTV systems. The last system was delivered to GSI (Geological Survey of... (read more)
