EdgeTech, a leader in high resolution sonar imaging systems and underwater technology, is once again proud to learn that its industry leading side scan sonar technology was used in another very noteworthy underwater find. Just weeks after locating the USS Lexington, the Research Vessel Petrel and Paul Allen’s talented team has located the sunken remains of the USS Juneau.

The USS Juneau, a US Navy light cruiser, was sunk in November 1942 during World War II. Located in over 4,000 meters of water the historic vessel can be seen in this very clear, low-noise EdgeTech 2205 sonar image. The amazing image shows the large 2 kilometer swath used during the search efforts. Upon sinking the vessel separated and the forward section can be seen resting hundreds of meters from the bow and stern of the vessel.
