Tritech has recently sold the first Gemini 1200ik dual frequency multibeam sonar to Outland Technology for use on their Outland 2500 ROV.
The sonar was sold to an existing Outland Technology customer who already had an Outland 2500 with the single frequency Gemini 720ik fitted.
As the Gemini 1200ik has the same physical envelope as the Gemini 720ik, Outland were able to upgrade the sonar on this order without making any changes or adjustments to the vehicle or the way in which the sonar is mounted.
Sean Mayfield from Outland Technology, said: “We saw the new product and immediately saw the benefit for our customers’ search and recovery operations. The higher frequency and wide beam angle will help in identification of small targets and allow for a more efficient search.”
The new multibeam imaging sonar was released at DSEI 2019 in London earlier in September.
