Seafloor Systems, Inc. was formed in Portland, OR, in 1999 by veteran naval hydrographer John Tamplin to provide hydrographic survey equipment and consulting to survey companies in the Pacific Northwest. Specializing in geophysical survey equipment, Seafloor has built up the largest multibeam echosounder rental pool in the U.S., providing full spectrum of equipment, software, personnel, training, and support. Combined, it has completed more than one million line-miles of multibeam survey.
Seafloor Systems, Inc. provides turnkey multibeam systems for shallow to medium-water depths (1-3000m). In addition to sonars, it provides a range of ancillary sensors such as motion and attitude sensors, sound velocity profilers, and tide gauges. It has sensors from many manufacturers such as Applanix, Coda Optopus, Teledyne Marine, Trimble, Valeport, and Ohmex. It also offers a Reson 8160 50-kHz multibeam echosounder, capable of mapping the seafloor down to 3,000 meters. For data acquisition and processing, it offers software systems from Triton Imaging, Hypack, Chesapeake Technology, and Caris. Its data processors can process data from multibeam echosounders, side scan sonars, magnetometers, and subbottom profilers acquired in most common formats such as XTF, Q-MIPS, .ALL, .HSX, SEG-Y and many more.
