EdgeTech introduces new Portable Sub-Bottom Profiling System.
EdgeTech has added another system to its already successful sub-bottom line. The new 3100-P Sub-Bottom Profiling System is EdgeTech’s portable solution for sub-bottom imaging. The 3100-P System uses Full Spectrum (“CHIRP”) pulses to create high-definition image slices of the sub-bottom structure. It can be used in rivers, lakes, ponds and in the ocean.
The 3100-P System comes with a choice of two (2) tow vehicles to meet the penetration and resolution requirements of a survey. The SB-216S tow vehicle has a frequency range from 2-16 kHz and the SB-424 tow vehicle from 4-24 kHz. Both vehicles use specially designed transmitters with low Q-wide band characteristics best suited for “CHIRP” transmissions. Two (2) multi-element line array hydrophones are installed in the tow vehicle to reduce acoustic scattering from the sides.
The 3100-P System comes with the standard EdgeTech 3100-P Portable Topside Processor which consists of a splash resistant topside case containing the amplifier and Full Spectrum electronics. A laptop computer running EdgeTech’s DISCOVER sub-bottom software is where the sonar data is displayed and stored.
EdgeTech manufactures a variety of marine products including side scan systems, sub-bottom systems, combined side scan/sub-bottom systems and modular imaging systems for deep towed, AUV, ROV and other applications utilizing Full Spectrum (“CHIRP”), multi-ping and synthetic aperture acquisition and processing techniques.
