Teledyne BlueView, the world leader in compact acoustic imaging and measurement technology added two new options to its mini M Series 2D Multibeam Imaging Sonar, lightweight and built-in 10° down-angle.
The new lightweight model reduces the M Series weight by 30% to 3.4 lbs. in air with near neutral buoyancy in water. The new M Series lightweight and 10° down-angle options are specifically engineered to meet the unique demands of micro-ROV and diver handheld platforms. The built-in 10° degree down-angle enhances usability by improving imaging of bottom or surface targets without having to tip the sonar or platform downward, and the lightweight improves handling.
“Our Sales and Engineering teams work together delivering solutions that meet our customer’s unique challenges, and the wide selection of options available with the new M Series can be combined to meet a specific need,” said Scott Bachelor, Teledyne BlueView Vice President of Engineering.
Teledyne BlueView is a leader in advanced 2D and 3D multibeam imaging sonar technology with the fastest, smallest, lightest systems available and more than 500 installed systems worldwide. Currently deployed on AUVs, ROVs, manned submersibles, surface vessels, diver handheld systems, and portable marine tripods Teledyne BlueView’s advanced sonar systems support mission critical underwater operations for leading operators, manufacturers, and service providers.
