Teledyne RESON has introduced four new multibeam sonar systems built on the SeaBat T-series platform.
The new sonars are the Integrated Dual Head SeaBat T20-R & T50-R and the modular SeaBat T20-R & T50-R Multibeam Sonars, delivered with a selection of sonar processors including the new Rack Mount processor.
The new Rack-Mounted Sonar Processor (RSP) forms the basis of the SeaBat T20-R, SeaBat T50-R single head and the Integrated Dual Head products. The RSP comes with an optional Inertial Navigation System (INS).
The new Integrated Dual Head SeaBat T20-R (IDH) and T50-R (IDH) are complete multibeam sonar survey systems, with one rack-mounted sonar processor running one fully integrated dual head sonar system.
The SeaBat T-Series is a modularized sonar concept with a distinct design which, according to Teledyne, allows the user to build a survey solution based on compact high-resolution sonars which can be scaled to match the needs from smaller survey platforms to larger vessels.
The family includes the SeaBat T20 and T50 sonar receivers, the Portable Sonar Processor (PSP) and the new Rack-Mounted Sonar Processor RSP. The modular design allows to start out with a smaller SeaBat T20 and later upgrade your sonar simply by replacing the receiver array.
“The SeaBat T-series is uniquely designed as a highly modularized sonar system with backward and forward compatibilities,“ says Tim Lysholt Jensen, VP of technology and product management for acoustic imaging products in Teledyne Marine. “The sonar delivers extremely clean and easy-to-process data and advanced features like Normalized Backscatter, Multi-Detect, X-Range and task specific beamforming modes allow you to get the most out of your surveys. Our technology provides our customers and users superior performance and results enabling them to reduce both survey and post processing time and thereby lower their survey costs and offer more competitive services to their clients.”
