Innomar standard parametric sub-bottom profiler (top side unit and transducer) Innomar's main product line, a series of narrow-beam parametric sub-bottom profilers provides unequalled high-resolution sub-bottom data both laterally and vertically, achieving excellent penetration. This product line (Innomar SBP, SES, SES-2000, SES-96) covers all depth ranges and can be used in water depths between less than one meter and full ocean depth. Applications include the geophysical imaging of sediments and sub-seabed structures for dredging purposes, for route and offshore site surveys and to map buried pipelines/cables.

Compared to conventional towed sub-bottom profilers the Innomar parametric SBPs provide better position accuracy and availability at higher survey speed.

All Innomar sub-bottom profilers come with a software package comprising a user-friendly data acquisition software (SESWIN) and the SESConvert data export tool (export SES data to SEG-Y and XTF data formats). Innomar SBP data can be processed using Innomar's ISE post-processing software or (after data export) with a wide range of third-party software.
