Seatronics Pte Ltd, an Acteon company, has purchased Kongsberg Mesotech Ltd’s M3 Sonar System to add to its Asia Pacific rental fleet.
The purchase is part of an ongoing investment by Seatronics into cutting-edge technology to support its global marine equipment rental fleet growth and marks a significant improvement in Seatronics’ advanced sonar imaging and profiling capabilities.
Offering multiple sonar functional capabilities in a single compact housing, the M3 Sonar is a multibeam system that provides high-resolution and easy-to-interpret images by combining the rapid refresh rate of conventional multibeam sonar with image quality comparable to high-resolution scanning sonar.
For bathymetric applications, the M3 Sonar can also be integrated with popular third-party survey data acquisition and post-processing software such as HYPACK®, HYSWEEP and CARIS® HIPs & SIPs. The system will expand customers’ operational boundaries, particularly in harsh water environments.
