The Company:
Imagenex was founded in 1988 by pioneers in the development of high-resolution imaging and profiling sonar. Within two years, the company had produced its first sonar – an imaging head for the commercial underwater industry that was the unheard-of size of a coffee mug and rated for 300 m depth. Company milestones include introducing the industry’s first digital color imaging sonar that could be operated from a computer without a dedicated processor in 1995; introducing a sidescan sonar in 2000 with a revolutionary price/performance ratio; and developing a high quality, compact and cost-effective multibeam sonar with obstacle avoidance or profiling configurations and optional depth ratings to 6,000 m.
It is the company’s development of the lightweight, cost-effective Delta T multibeam sonar that is successfully bringing the benefits of real-time, high-resolution, 3D visualization within reach of operators that previously had to use mechanical scanning single-beam devices. The combination of reduced cost, high quality imaging and functionality of the Delta T and other Imagenex products has been increasing its popularity in the scientific market, and for commercial, recreational and search and rescue (SAR) applications around the globe.


The Tech:

Imagenex has developed a reputation for products that break new ground for depth capability, size, cost, imaging quality and functionality. Innovation is both a goal and methodology for the company, which closely manages its product development, in order to control quality.  As Imagenex continues to bring new products to market, it adds variations and improvements to existing equipment. New additions to the Imagenex line of cost-effective products have recently hit the market. The new DT100 Sensor Interface Relay (SIR) provides a central connection point for all your bathymetric sensors including sonar (1 or 2 units), GPS, MRU, Gyro/Heading, and Sound Velocity.
