RESON Introduces New Multibeam Echosounder (Denmark)
RESON’s newest product, the SeaBat 7160, raises the bar in its class among the world-renowned brand of SeaBat multibeam echosounders.
Marine Exploration, Seafloor Habitat Mapping and Hydrographic Charting are moving into deeper waters. To meet the need for Multibeam Surveys in medium to deep water (up to 3000m), RESON introduces the new SeaBat 7160 multibeam echosounder.
To ensure even greater performance, the newest member of the SeaBat family is being released with X-Range which provides greater performance and improved system immunity to external noise.
“We are very pleased to put the SeaBat 7160 on the market. The new system is a significant upgrade of the SeaBat 8160 – especially with the inclusion of X-Range,” says Executive Vice President of Product Management at RESON, Tim Lysholt Jensen. The unique feature about the SeaBat 7160 is the X-Range which is a software and hardware feature that provides extended performance. The basis of X-Range is a frequency modulated transmission combined with advanced signal processing techniques to extract the maximum performance from the system. Furthermore, the SeaBat 7160 is unique in the market for its position, being the only portable medium to deep water solution available.
The system can operate in water depths of between 3 to 3000 meters, it offers up to 512 High Density Equi-Distant Beams with a selection of coverage modes including features such as variable and steerable swath, together with real-time pitch and roll stabilization maximizing useable swath and performance. The SeaBat 7160 also provides the collection of high density water column data all wrapped up in a state-of-the-art processing unit.
