The Klein System 4900 is a versatile Side Scan Sonar used for many different survey and recovery applications. The high fidelity, high-definition imaging abilities and the portability of the System 4900 make it an ideal tool for Search and Recovery (SAR) missions while its long range performance, rugged construction, and 300 m operational depth rating provide superb capabilities for coastal surveying.
The System 4900 was specifically designed to produce detailed underwater images using advanced sonar technologies. It is commonly used by police, fire, sheriff, Coast Guard, and Naval units throughout the world. The system employs both a user selectable CW pulse transmission mode and advanced broadband CHIRP signal processing technology which, when coupled with Klein’s proprietary despeckling algorithms, provide extraordinary long range, high resolution seafloor images. Image quality is further improved by the System 4900 advanced transducer design which is optimized to provide very narrow horizontal beam widths and thereby exceptional along-track resolution. The combined result of these discriminating features is high quality image resolution at low frequency long ranges that is comparable to or better than high frequency, short range resolution images of competitive systems.
