Side scan sonars are used for acoustical imaging of seafloor surficial features such as sedimentation patterns and man-made objects (e.g., cables, pipelines and shipwrecks).
Meridata offers a selection of side scan sonar systems
operating at frequencies between 100 kHz and 1300 kHz, and providing
swath coverages of up to 1 km.
In combination with our sub-bottom
profilers, side scan sonars produce invaluable information for
operations such as marine cable and pipeline route surveys, and
planning of underwater structures, as well as marine habitat mapping.
