Multi-beam sonar manufacturer WASSP Ltd . debuts its latest system – now for super yacht applications. WASSP-Wireless has been designed to address one of super yacht captains biggest concerns; underwater obstacle avoidance. Ideally suited to use when navigating in unknown waters or where marine charts lack sufficient detail, WASSP-Wireless helps takes the risk out of the equation for the captains. Installed in the tender or support vessel of a super yacht, the WASSP-Wireless system uses a wifi radio link to send a real-time sea floor map back to the super yachts bridge system and display on a MaxSea navigation plotting platform in real-time.
Using a wide angle, multi beam transducer, WASSP-Wireless quickly and accurately covers the seafloor. With one pass at a depth of 20m, WASSP-Wireless will map a swath over 60m wide using 112 sonar beams and renders an information-rich 2D or 3D real-time image on the bridge.
Seafloor topography, rock or coral outcrops, obstacles are clearly identified giving large vessels the opportunity to navigate safely into or through areas that would have previously been seen as off limits.
