Kongsberg Introduces GeoSwath 4 Multibeam Echo Sounder

Kongsberg Maritime has launched GeoSwath 4, the fourth generation of its GeoSwath shallow water multibeam echo sounder.

GeoSwath 4 features a new look deck unit, which is smaller and lighter, with sufficient Ethernet, USB and serial interfaces to suit any combination of peripheral sensors. Inside, the new hardware enables the GS4 to transmit on both port and starboard transducers simultaneously, doubling the previous along track data density and increasing the performance and resolution as a result, the company explained.

GeoSwath 4 is available in three distinct versions. The Standard version (GeoSwath 4) features the compact improved deck unit and compact transducer head as standard while the Rugged version (GeoSwath 4R) for deployment in extreme environments additionally features an IP68 rating and 24 VDC power supply. The third version is configured specifically for AUV, USV and ROV deployment (GeoSwath+ AUV/USV/ROV), Kongsberg noted.

The new GS4 software has been specifically designed for the system and features real time processing and new automated filters.

“These technological improvements keep the GeoSwath name at the forefront of the increasingly important shallow water market and ensure that users can quickly and accurately map these environments with confidence,” said James Baxter, product sales manager, Kongsberg GeoAcoustics.
