Building on the success of its 6205 and 6205s Combined Swath Bathymetry & Side Scan Sonar systems, EdgeTech has introduced the 6205s2, a more compact and lighter package with additional features such as options for an integrated INS, the higher resolution frequency pair of 850/1600 kHz, and EdgeTech’s gap-fill side scan output

Designed for compact Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) projects, EdgeTech’s 6205s2 produces real time, high resolution, 3D maps of the seafloor while providing an enhanced and fully integrated swath bathymetry and dual frequency side scan sonar system. 

Unrivalled in its swath coverage in shallow water when compared to other single head bathymetry-only systems, the 6205s2 system offers co-registered dual frequency side scan and bathymetry with swath coverages up to 200° with a selection of equidistant and equiangle output options. 6205s2 is the only bathymetry system to now offer EdgeTech’s motion tolerant side scan sonar feature for operation in more adverse weather conditions. 

The system incorporates EdgeTech’s Full Spectrum technology to exceed IHO SP-44, NOAA and USACE specifications for feature detection and bathymetric point data uncertainty. The data outputs of the 6205s2 are accepted by most third-party acquisition and post processing software packages.
