Swathe Services purchased the newly launched Sonic 2020 multi-beam and ultra high resolution upgrade for the Sonic 2024to add to its already expanding rental pool.

The Sonic 2020 is the most compact high performance wideband shallow water multi-beam echo sounder providing over 20x selectable operating frequencies to choose from within the 200-400 kHz band. In addition to selectable operating frequencies, the Sonic 2020 provides variable swath coverage selections from 10-130° as well as ability to rotate the swath port or starboard in real-time. The Sonic 2020 frequency agility, productive swath coverage and narrow focused 2° beam widths provide hydrographic professionals with quality data output for shallow water survey operations.

The Sonic 2024 can be upgraded to provide extremely narrow beam widths (0.3° x 0.6°) at 700kHz operation making this option invaluable for detailed offshore site surveys such as pipeline inspections, cable laying operations or other micro bathymetry applications. The raw data acquired from this option over the Margaret River Wreck in Southampton can be seen in the above picture.

With these recent purchases Swathe Services rental pool now includes a large number of R2SONIC multi-beam echo sounders including ultra high resolution and 3,000m depth rated options, as well as an iXBlue HYDRINS and iXBlue ROVINS.
