Teledyne Introduces MB2 Multibeam Echosounder

Teledyne Odom Hydrographic, a provider of hydrographic sonar solutions, has launched the MB2 Multibeam Echosounder.

MB2 is developed for fast mobilization on smaller vessels and is optimized for shallow water survey companies, port and harbor authorities, dredging companies and other users.

As an option, MB2 can be supplied with an Integrated GNSS aided INS powered by Applanix’ POS MV WaveMaster engine, as well as an integrated real-time SVP sensor to simplify installation and calibration, making the MB2 perfect for use on vessels of opportunity, small survey launches and ASVs.

MB2 features a dedicated cylindrical transmit array and broad range of sounding frequencies from 200–460 KHz improving on the performance of the MB1 by offering a wider coverage and narrower acoustic beam. Using both amplitude and phase bottom detection, the MB2 is capable of sounding a swath of up to 140° in up to 110m of water depth.

The new MB2 is the outcome of a dedicated product development effort over the last three years, building on customer feedback and experiences gathered in the market for ultra-compact Echosounders for fast mobilization. Our product range of MB1 and MB2 will now fit a much broader span of both budget and performance expectations,” said Stephen F. Apsey, General Manager for Teledyne Odom Hydrographic.

With 24 bit raw data, both water column and seabed information can be collected within the controller software. The Real Time Appliance (RTA) synchronizes all of the sensors with accuracy better than 0.1 ms.
