Shallow Water Multi Beam Echosounders
 
   
 
   
 

ATLAS Hydrographic was one of the innovators in shallow water multi beam surveying with the development of the ATLAS FANSWEEP 10 multi beam echosounder in the early 1990s.

This tradition is continued with the recently introduced ATLAS FANSWEEP 30 COASTAL multi beam system.

ATLAS FANSWEEP 30 COASTAL multi beam system

Based on state-of-the-art technology, the ATLAS FANSWEEP 30 COASTAL is the most advanced shallow water surveying sonar available in the market today. Its' features include:

1) 100-200 kHz broadband coverage that includes simultaneous multi ping technology allowing the system to transmit up to eight pings into the water column at any one time. This enables the system to operate in smaller vessels at higher speeds and in higher sea states than conventional multi beam systems

2) High Order Beamforming which is a patented beamforming technique that goes well beyond conventional beamforming methods to provide an unrivalled resolution across the entire swath of 8x water depth.

3) Comprehensive set of survey data including bathymetry, automatic feature detection, bottom type classification and in-water column analysis

These features endow the system with high quality data and an unmatched rate of effort for surveying, resulting in significant operational cost savings.

ATLAS Hydrographic continues to sell and support the range of ATLAS FANSWEEP 20 multi beam echosounders. These are proven conventional multi beam surveying systems that are in service with customers throughout the world. The current product range includes:

ATLAS FANSWEEP 20/200

A wide swath 20 kHz multi beam echosounder designed for survey of ports, waterways and coastal areas to depths of 300 m. The ATLAS FANSWEEP 20/200 has a dual head transducer that provides swath coverage of 6x water depth for bathymetry and up to 12x water depth for side scan imagery

ATLAS FANSWEEP 20/100

A wide swath 100 kHz multi beam echosounder designed for survey of coastal areas to depths of 600 m. The ATLAS FANSWEEP 20/100 has a dual head transducer that provides swath coverage of 6x water depth for bathymetry and up to 12x water depth for side scan imagery.
