New Innomar SBP generations

After new generations of the "Innomar standard" SBP (12/2020) and the "Innomar medium-100" SBP (09/2020), also a new generation of the "Innomar compact" SBP model has been just delivered (03/2021).

There are also new SBP versions intended for installations on uncrewed vehicles (USV/ASV): "Innomar standard-usv" and "Innomar medium-usv".

From now on the "Innomar smart" SBP model comes in a rugged housing (IP65) as standard delivery.

All new topside units have reduced dimensions and weight, resultung in easier transportation and mob/demob. With the new generations the term "SES-2000" has been removed from the model name.

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.
