MultiBeam Sonar Option

The Imagenex Delta-T profiling sonar option is fully integrated into the VectorMAP (mission planner) for setting up sonar tracks. This option can be combined with a  DVL for improved positional accuracy. The multibeam sonar is provided as a 12" wet section to the EP30 vehicle and the ideal solution for a variety of survey requirements.

Example Multibeam Mission in a Shallow Bay

Mission Plan Highlights:
Two Iver2 Commercial AUVs configured with Imagenex 837B Delta T Multibeam and
10 beam DVLs for added positional accuracy
VectorMap mission plan includes 5 separate sweeps done at 2 knots
3-4 hours runtime for each sweep utilizing less than half the battery capacity
