EdgeTech adds new higher frequency side scan option to 2200-S Integrated System for Small AUVs.
EdgeTech has added a new dual frequency 300/600 kHz high-resolution side scan option to its existing 2200-S Integrated System for Small AUVs.
The EdgeTech 2200-S is now offered with a Full Spectrum® (“CHIRP”) dual frequency 120/410 kHz or 300/600 kHz side scan sonar. The 2200-S processor transmits long, wide bandwidth pulses that result in higher resolution images and greater Signal to Noise Ratio resulting in extended range.
In addition, the system also has a 4-24 kHz Full Spectrum® sub-bottom profiler with a number of selectable pulses available within that range. By changing the center frequency of the pulse it is possible to adjust the penetration and resolution of the sub-bottom profiler.
The 2200-S is controlled by the AUV via an Ethernet link and uses less than 30 watts of power.
The 2200-S is typically used for, but not limited to MCM (Mine Counter Measures), geo-hazard, geological/geophysical, pipeline/cable route and search surveys.
EdgeTech manufactures a variety of marine products including sub-bottom systems, combined side scan/sub-bottom systems, and modular imaging systems for deep towed, AUV, ROV and other applications utilizing Full Spectrum, multi-ping or synthetic aperture acquisition and processing techniques.
