Teledyne Odom Hydrographic Launches New MB1 (USA)
Teledyne Odom Hydrographic has announced the launch of the new Multibeam Echo Sounder, the MB1.
Designed and manufactured within the Teledyne Marine Group of companies, the new 120° sonar operates on user selectable frequency from 170 kHz to 220 kHz. MB1 features Phase & Amplitude bottom detection, 24 Bit Water Column Backscatter data, Sidescan, Snippets, light weight Titanium & Acetal construction, optional integrated Motion Sensor and GPS heading system.
By collaborating with Teledyne RDI’s engineering team, Odom will now be able to offer a state of the art platform that can support all of the features required by today’s multibeam users that are typically only found in expensive high end systems. The MB1 is the first of several new products being released in 2012.
Odom will be demonstrating the new compact MB1 multibeam system at the upcoming Hypack conference in San Diego on January 30th & 31st.
