GeoAcoustics Side Scan Sonar

GeoAcoustics Side Scan Sonar

The GeoAcoustics Dual Frequency Side Scan Sonar system is the ideal tool for seabed feature mapping, offering flexibility and high quality results in a simple and reliable package.

The system offers high resolution, switch selectable, dual frequency operation (100/410 kHz), which when combined with multiplexed data transmission enables a low drag co-axial tow cable to be used. This also facilitates simple installation onto remotely operated vehicles (ROV’s) and combined systems towfish.

The standard system employs a lightweight towfish which is easily deployed by one person and can operate to a depth of 1000 metres. There are separate controls for each channel, which makes the system very easy to operate. Optional extras include a deeper rated towfish, a towfish instrumentation package and a stainless steel towbody.

The basic system includes the following:

Transceiver (model SS941)
Towfish (model 159D), which houses the multiplexer and two dual frequency transducers.
The multiplexed data transmission technique employed allows the system to be used with a wide selection of towcables, including twisted pair and co-axial cables. Data from the dual frequency side scan sonar can be input to many sonar processing systems, including a GeoPro Sonar Processor or it can be displayed on a wide variety of industry standard graphic recorders.
