Teledyne RESON, a provider of hydrographic sonar solutions, has announced the launch of its new ultra‐high resolution, portable multibeam echosounder, the SeaBat T50‐P. The SeaBat T50‐P is a new addition to the SeaBat T series, introduced in the beginning of 2013 as a completely new product generation, built from the ground up.
Combined with the Portable Sonar Processor, the SeaBat T50‐P delivers unprecedented clean survey data, providing faster operational surveys and reduced processing time. The SeaBat T50‐P is fully frequency agile from 190 to 420 kHz, allowing for improved swath performance and reduced survey time under difficult conditions.
The SeaBat T50‐P is designed for fast mobilization on smaller vessels, including unmanned surface vehicles, and is optimized for shallow water survey companies, port and harbor authorities, dredging companies and other users looking for an ultra‐high resolution system. The Portable Sonar Processor and sonar head form a compact system, securing minimal interfacing and low space requirements.
“The new SeaBat T50‐P is the outcome of a dedicated product development effort over the last several years. The SeaBat T50‐P is built on customer feedback and experiences gathered in the market for compact multibeam echosounders, and utilises our foremost technology and performance whilst still delivering a competitively priced product,” said Tim Lysholt Jensen, VP of Technology and Product Management for Acoustic Imaging Products in Teledyne Marine. “With the incredibly clean data produced together with features like Normalized Backscatter, Multi‐Detect and very advanced beamforming modes, the product provides fantastic customer value.”
