Innomar SES-2000 Sidescan Extension
With this extension Innomar's shallow-water sub-bottom profiler Innomar SES-2000 compact can be turned into a digital sidescan. For this the SBP transducer is replaced by a sidescan sonar-head operating at 100kHz.
This sidescan extension can be used in applications that require not only sub-bottom data but also to determine seabed morphology and/or objects on the seabed. Applications include surveys in the dredging industry (looking for outcrops), archaeological surveys, pipeline tracking and presurveys of construction sites.
Please note that the sidescan head replaces the SBP transducer and therefore sidescan and sub-bottom data cannot be acquired simultaneously. If you are looking for a system that runs SBP and sidescan in parallel you should consider Innomar's Innomar SES-2000 light plus and Innomar SES-2000 standard plus models.
