- When portability matters.
- Usable from less than one meter down to 500 meters.
A unique feature of Innomar's parametric SBPs is the possibility to work in extremely shallow waters, even less than one metre.
Sub-bottom profiling in shallow waters is challenging for traditional systems and techniques due to wide-beam transducers, sidelobe patterns, ringing effects and high reverberation levels. The parametric technology used in our shallow-water models offers very narrow beams of less than 5 degrees with highly portable transducers and a high system bandwidth with sub-decimetre resolution.
Devices can be mobilized on vessels of opportunity or autonomous platforms at various scales.

For the Innomar compact SBP there is also a Sidescan Extension available (1 – 30m).
The Innomar family of parametric sub-bottom profilers have been formerly also known as "SES-96", "SES-2000" or "Innomar SES" SBPs. Starting with new or improved models introduced in 2020 the term "SES-xx" is not been used in the model name any more.
