Multibeam Sonar System

Our primary survey tool is an R2sonic 2024 high resolution Multibeam Echo Sounder (MBES). It has the ability to achieve seafloor coverage down to 400m and has an adjustable frequency (200 kHz to 400 kHz) and swath width (10° to 160°). It is paired with an Applanix POS MV GNSS system. This multibeam system is capable of collecting bathymetric, backscatter and True Pix data, and utilizes a Valeport sound velocity sensor/profiler for accurate sound speed readings.
