Knudsen CHIRP 3260 Rack Mount Echosounder Systems are the next benchmark in scientific sub-bottom profilling echosounders. The CHIRP 3260, is a high power deep water system capable of reaching serious depths up to 10,000m plus. The next generation system replaces the earlier well respected Knusden 320BR echosounder. The CHIRP 3260, a blackbox system housed in a 5U rackmount case for rackmount case for shipboard installation on the rack interface to computer via a USB connection, and is supplied with SounderSuite Windows application software. The CHIRP 3260 incorporates the latest in digital processing technology and specialized chirp and correlation processing algorithms to enhance sub-bottom depth capability.
Available in 2 and 4 channel configuration. The versatile system in particularly well suited to multiple survey roles and includes a wide range of bathymetric frequencies. Most commonly configured for the low frequency combination of 3.5/12kHz, the CHIRP 3260 is designed for full ocean depth requirements where high power output is required.
Dual frequency 3.5kHz 10kW and 12kHz 2kW.
Use with existing 3.5 kHz hull mount 4×4 arrays.
Capable of multiping transmission, correlation processing.
Heave compensated grey scale sub bottom records.
Standard interface to all modern survey tools including GPS, data loggers and heave compensators, USB interface.
