EdgeTech said that with the introduction of the 2205 AUV-based sonar system, manufacturers and operators of smaller sized AUV systems have embraced the high quality sonars which were traditionally only available in larger sized AUV systems. The recently delivered Teledyne Gavia AUVs to the Polish Ministry of Defense for mine countermeasure’s (MCM) were equipped with the latest EdgeTech 600/1,600 kHz simultaneous dual frequency side scan sonar payloads. The very high frequency EdgeTech systems were selected for the long range detection and the ultrahigh resolution classification capability for MLO’s (mine like objects). The EdgeTech 2205 classification frequency of 1,600 kHz is capable of producing near photographic quality images of targets making MLO target classification very easy as shown in the attached MLO sonar image. Other 2205 attributes that contributed to the selection of the EdgeTech systems were low power, small electronics’ volume and compact transducers making integration on the small AUVs possible and easy.
