Reson 9001S 350m, 550m Seabat System

Reson 9001S Seabat System (350m, 550m) - Available for rental, hire and ex-rental purchase from Ashtead Technology.

The SeaBat 9001 Multibeam echosounder measures 60 soundings in a single swath from a lightweight and portable transducer head. Sixty sonar beams within each swath (combined to form a 90 degrees wide by 1.5 degree long geometrically correct cross section) provide simultaneous sonar coverage. While traveling at speeds of over 10 knots, the SeaBat is able to output up to 15 complete profiles per second and still maintain 100% coverage of the seafloor.

Because of its small size, the SeaBat 9001 can be installed and operated from an ROV, a small survey launch or a towed platform. With the ability to orient the transducer, 100% coverage of the seafloor can be achieved from two times to four times the measured water depth. Not only is the SeaBat currently utilized for general hydrographic programs, but also for surveying pipeline routes, breakwaters, harbor facilities and dredging operations, as well.

Optional upgrades to the SeaBat 9001 include simultaneous output of side scan imagery, dual transducer heads for wider coverage and forward-looking imaging capability.
