EdgeTech: New Side Scan Sonars for USACE
EdgeTech, a leader in high resolution sonar imaging systems, recently announced the shipment of additional 4125 Side Scan Sonars to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
The most recent shipment to the Wilmington District brings the total units shipped to USACE districts this year in the double digits.
The EdgeTech 4125 Side Scan Sonar is a small, portable and versatile system. The 4125 utilizes EdgeTech’s Full Spectrum® CHIRP technology, which provides high resolution imagery for fast and accurate surveys. Two dual simultaneous frequency sets are available for the 4125 depending on the application.
The 400/900 kHz set is the perfect tool for shallow water survey applications, providing an ideal combination of range and resolution. The 600/1600 kHz set is ideally suited for customers that require ultra-high resolution imagery in order to detect very small targets.
The 4125 systems are often used for classifying targets, searching for lost buoys and mooring and reviewing any other potentially dangerous underwater obstructions in the waterways.
