French company RTsys, a specialist in underwater sound systems, has introduced SonaDive, a new non-magnetic sonar to be used by divers to locate submerged objects.
The new sonar was developed in order to help divers detect and locate targets on the seabed in coastal or port areas, including submerged explosives, shipwrecks, bodies, etc.
SonaDive enables operations to be programmed and saved. Its navigation system is equipped with a GPS, as well as a Doppler Velocity Log, RTsys noted.
The system is equipped with a 12-inch screen and the communication system, which can be used either between two devices or with a touchscreen tablet for a user on the surface.
The first SonaDive systems have been delivered to the French Navy.
