Wednesday, June 04, 2014

MSI is producing two new Synthetic Aperture Sonar (SAS) components for two systems of Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems’ PROSAS suite of sonar solutions. Raytheon’s PROSAS Surveyor family of synthetic aperture sonar systems provides high-definition sonar capabilities for a wide range of applications. The PROSAS Surveyor 60 (PS60) and PROSAS Surveyor 175 (PS175) systems collect simultaneous side scan, SAS data and operate at 6,000m depth. Both multifunction, wide swath systems enable coverage rates up to three times greater than conventional side scan sonar systems. Raytheon’s PS60 is a long-range, high-definition sonar for deep-ocean imaging operations, such as wreck searches, cable/pipeline route surveys, and exclusive economic zone (EEZ) seabed investigation. PS175 is a modular, high-definition sonar for seabed search and salvage, cable/pipeline route surveys, mine countermeasures and port and harbor security operations.
