Teledyne BlueView, the world leader in compact acoustic imaging and measurement technology made its initial shipments of the smallest, full-featured 2D Multibeam Imaging Sonar systems, the M Series. Shipments of the all new M Series sonar included Global Diving & Salvage, Seattle, WA, and Oceanographic & Geophysical Instruments, Sandwich, MA.
The new M Series is 30% smaller than Teledyne BlueView’s P900 Series and includes the same features and functionality that made the P900 Series so popular. Engineered to fit where other sonar systems can’t to deliver crisp, real-time high resolution sonar imagery for underwater navigation, monitoring, target tracking, and more. Available with 45°, 90°, or 130° field-of-view options, a lightweight model with near neutral buoyancy, and a built-in 10° down angle for ROV applications.
“Teledyne BlueView constantly pushes the size envelope. Our customers needed minimally intrusive sensors to fit onto smaller and smaller platforms and the new M Series is engineered to fit this need,” said Scott Bachelor, BlueView Vice President of Engineering.
