BioSonics has manufactured scientific echosounders for more than 34 years. BioSonics first introduced fixed-location hydroacoustic fish monitoring in 1980. Clients include hundreds of federal, state, and provincial agencies, research institutions, and private sector entities worldwide. 

The Tech:

BioSonics technology centers around focused, split beam and single beam hydroacoustics. Core products are the DT-X and MX series mobile echosounders for fisheries and aquatic habitat assessment. Digital transducers with superior signal to noise ratio, extremely low side-lobes, and sophisticated multi-frequency, multi-channel systems are some of the unique technology advantages offered. Recent innovations include:
• In partnership with Liquid Robotics, development of the Wave Glider DT-X SUB – A persistent, long-range hydroacoustic data collection system that is self-powered and capable of trans-oceanic surveying, with automated data collection and reporting capabilities.
• Development of entirely new echosounder system and specialized data processing/visualization software – The MX Aquatic Habitat Echosounder and Visual Habitat Software for aquatic vegetation, substrate classification, and bathymetric assessment and mapping.
• Custom-built automated salmon counting system for the Quinault Nation utilizing split-beam DT-X technology and programmable pan/tilt aiming software
• DT-X SUB autonomous submersible echosounder deployed in SCINI ROV for Moss Landing Marine Labs.
