Kongsberg M3 Multibeam Sonar Head
The Kongsberg Mesotech M3 Sonar is a multibeam system with both imaging and profiling capabilities.
The Kongsberg Mesotech M3 Sonar is a multibeam system with both imaging and profiling capabilities. The M3 Sonar provides high resolution and easy to interpret images by combining the rapid refresh rate of a conventional multibeam sonar with image quality comparable to a single beam sonar.
The innovative design of the M3 Sonar uses two sets of complementary transducers which allow it to generate both imaging and bathymetric data with the same head. The M3 Multibeam Sonar has the ability to configure applications using complex pulses. The system allows the operator to interleave active pings and passive listening modes, Doppler, up to 4 multiple true zoom windows with linear FM and CW imaging modes of operation. Data outputs are compatible with various third party software such as Caris, EIVA, Hypack and QINSy. The Kongsberg M3 Multibeam Sonar has the ability to produce real time 3D point clouds enabling fast target or object detection. Ideal for shallow water surveys on USV/ASV/ROV and dual head deployment.
