EdgeTech unveils new underwater surveying tool

St. John's Bay

A new bathymetry system from underwater technology developer EdgeTech allowed the company to map Canada's St. John's Harbor in less than three hours.

The mapping, conducted in a record three hours, according to the Massachusetts-based company, was performed during a demonstration that coincided with the Canadian Hydrographic Association's annual conference.

EdgeTech said its new 6205 system was able to map the harbor and the narrows leading into it by using co-registered bathymetry and side-scan sonar data.

EdgeTech's 6205 has advantages over traditional multi-beam systems as its transducer array configuration and signal processing techniques limit nadir gap and latency issues associated with many other technologies, the company said.

The 6205 is also available in an automated underwater vehicle version, called the EdgeTech 2205.
