The new 2300 combines EdgeTech’s highly successful line of side scan sonars and sub-bottom profilers into the latest Edgetech system architecture.
The new system builds on EdgeTech’s proven sonar technology in a number of ways. The system is ideal for deep water combined sonar operations and provides enhancements to traditional systems. Utilising EdgeTech’s proven Full Spectrum® CHIRP technology to provide crisp, high-resolution imagery, surveyors can choose to operate any two frequencies simultaneously from the tri-frequency system.
Sub-bottom profiler capabilities have been expanded on the new 2300 to include the ability to incorporate up to four low-frequency transducers as part of EdgeTech’s DW-106 (1-10kHz) deep penetration system. Coupled with that is the ability to utilise a large PVDF hydrophone array providing better sub-bottom receive sensitivity and directivity.
EdgeTech’s MPES bathymetry is not installed on the GoSubsea systems at this time however we would consider an upgrade in the future. The Multi-Phase Echo Sounder (MPES) produces real-time, high resolution, three-dimensional (3D) maps of the seafloor while providing a co-registered simultaneous dual-frequency side scan imagery system. Additional features include a remote head USBL beacon, optional Nexus Multiplexer, a rear magnetometer shackle mount, and adjustable trim panels.
