Innomar SES-2000 quattro Sub-Bottom Profiler

Innomar SES-2000 quattro parametric sub-bottom profiler The Innomar SES-2000 quattro multi-transducer sub-bottom profiler is designed for applications which need very high data density in extremely shallow waters. These applications include pipeline and cable surveys, risk mitigation at offshore building sites or archeological surveys.

The Innomar SES-2000 quattro model acquires full-waveform data that can be processed with any seismic software (SEG-Y format). Innomar also provides the ISE post-processing software specialized on the Innomar SES-2000 SBP data. For three-dimensional visualization of the sub-bottom data, Innomar provides a gridding tool and third-party visualization software.

Transducer Configurations

Four highly portable transducers can be assembled in different ways to provide optimal solutions for different survey tasks:

Quad beam mode (QBM)
  • line array using single transducers
    → four survey lines per sailed profile
  • highest data density for 3D visualisation
  • transducers pinging subsequently
  • transmitting and receiving using single transducers
  • variable transducer separation (equidistant)
Innomar SES-2000 quattro QBM
Quad beam mode with wide receiver (QBMW)
  • line array using single transducers
    → four survey lines per sailed profile
  • highest data density for 3D visualisation
  • transducers pinging subsequently
  • single transducer transmits, two transducers used for receiving
  • transducers needs to be close together (equidistant)
  • better resolution and penetration than QBM
Innomar SES-2000 quattro QBMW
Triple beam mode (TBM)
  • line array using two transducers combined
    → three survey lines per sailed profile
  • high data density for 3D visualisation at increased power
  • transducer groups pinging subsequently (overlapping)
  • transducers needs to be close together (equidistant)
Innomar SES-2000 quattro TBM
Dual beam mode (DBM)
  • line array using two transducers grouped
    → two survey lines; increased power
  • transducers placed side by side or one in front of the other
  • high data density for 3D visualisation
  • transducer groups pinging subsequently
  • variable separation of transducer groups (equidistant)
Innomar SES-2000 quattro DBM
Single beam mode (SBM)
  • all four transducers grouped
    → one survey line; maximum power
  • transducers pinging together
  • highest possible range / penetration
  • transducers needs to be close together (equidistant)
