SIDE SCAN SONARS
EdgeTech’s 4125 Side Scan Sonar System was designed with both the Search & Recovery (SAR) and shallow water survey operations in mind (maximum depth of 650 feet). The systems lightweight (less than 50 lbs.) make it ideal for small boats and vessels of opportunity which typically don't have a winch. The 4125 utilizes EdgeTech’s Full Spectrum® CHIRP technology, which provides higher resolution imagery at ranges up to 50% greater than non-CHIRP systems operating at the same frequency. This translates into more accurate results and faster surveys, thus cutting down on costs. Two dual simultaneous frequency sets are available for the 4125 depending on the application. The 400/900 kHz set is the perfect tool for shallow water survey applications, providing an ideal combination of range and resolution. The 600/1600 kHz set is ideally suited for customers that require ultra high resolution imagery in order to detect very small targets (SAR). The 4125 system can be powered by both AC and DC for added versatility and is delivered in portable rugged cases for ease of transport from site-to-site.
Options: Keel weight, v-fin depressor wing, pole mount, quick change hull scan bracket
The 4200 Series is a versatile side scan sonar system that can be configured for almost any survey application from shallow to deep water operations (maximum depth of 6,500 feet). The 4200 utilizes EdgeTech’s Full Spectrum® CHIRP technology to provide crisp, high resolution imagery at ranges up to 50% greater than non-CHIRP systems; thus allowing customers to cover larger areas and save money spent on costly surveys. One of the unique features of the 4200 is the optional Multi-Pulse (MP) technology, which places two sound pulses in the water rather than one pulse like conventional side scan sonar systems. This allows the 4200 to be towed at speeds of up to 10 knots while still maintaining 100% bottom coverage. In addition, the MP technology will provide twice the resolution when operating at normal tow speeds, thus allowing for better target detection and classification ability. The addition of the optional MP technology provides the operator with two modes of operation; either High Definition Mode (HDM) or High Speed Mode (HSM). This software-selectable mode of operation provides the operator the ability to select the best configuration for the specific job type.
Options: Pressure Sensor, Magnetometer, Integrated USBL Acoustic Tracking System, Built-in Responder Nose, Depressor, Power Loss Pinger and Custom Sensors
Edgetech 2000 Series
The 2000 Series combines EdgeTech’s highly successful line of side scan sonars and sub-bottom profilers into one fully integrated system.The combined side scan sonar and sub-bottom profiling system comes in a choice of three different towfish: 2000-CSS, 2000-DSS and 2000-TVD. The CSS comes with a low frequency 500 Hz – 12 kHz sub-bottom profiler and is designed for applications that require sub-bottom penetration in water depths of up to 300m. The DSS comes with a higher frequency 2 – 16 kHz sub-bottom profiler and is designed for applications that require high resolution sub-bottom imagery in depths of up to 2,000m. The 2000-TVD comes with a low frequency 1 – 10 kHz sub-bottom profiler and is depth rated to 3000 meters. All towfish come with the choice of either a 100/400 kHz or 300/600 kHz dual simultaneous frequency CHIRP side scan sonar which will provide an excellent combination of range and resolution.
