SINGAPORE – Seatronics Pte. Ltd. has purchased Kongsberg Mesotech Ltd.’s M3 Sonar system. The purchase is part of an ongoing investment by Seatronics into technology to support its global marine equipment rental fleet growth and to further add to Seatronics’ sonar imaging and profiling capabilities. The unit will be in the Asia/Pacific region.
Offering multiple sonar functions in one housing, the M3 Sonar system is a multi-beam system that provides high-resolution and easy-to-interpret images by combining the rapid refresh rate of conventional multi-beam sonar with image quality comparable to high-resolution scanning sonar, said Seatronics. Exclusive to the M3 Sonar is a multi-mode function with four pre-defined operating modes (imaging, enhanced image quality, ROV navigation, and profiling).
For bathymetric applications, the M3 system can be integrated with third-party survey data acquisition and post-processing software such as HYPACK, HYSWEEP, and CARIS HIPs and SIPs.
