Coda Octopus has announced a new addition to its range of real-time 3D sonar systems. The latest development sees a wide-angle 90° x 40° 240kHz option added to the Echoscope®.
This new variant of sonar has multiple projectors and affords increased opening angle thus significantly increasing the field-of-view and survey area of coverage. In addition to the real-time 3D imaging, which enables the Echoscope® to deliver efficiencies in projects where there is low or zero visibility conditions prevailing the new XD Dual Frequency model will enable large area imaging and mapping to be efficiently and effectively completed in support of a wide range of subsea bathymetry and imaging projects.
The Echoscope® is well established as the world’s first and highest resolution real-time 3D sonar. Built around unique patented technology it generates a complete 3D model, composed of over 16,000 sounding from each and every acoustic transmission.
This new XD variant provides a multiple projector configuration giving users the benefit and option for multiple frequency options.
Users will now be able to select from multiple opening angles and frequencies including:
The new XD variant can be operated in Landscape or Portrait orientation for increased horizontal or vertical coverage in critical applications and all frequencies can be selected from a dropdown menu in Coda Octopus’ Underwater Survey Explorer software.
The XD variant is immediately available for new purchases and also can be accessed by existing Echoscope® owners via Coda Octopus’ upgrade program.
