New multibeam echo sounder launched

21st February 2013

Tritech International Ltd has launched Horizon, a multibeam echo sounder system in a compact and robust single housing. It uses the latest advances in acoustic time delay beamforming techniques to deliver high quality survey data at an affordable cost.

In shallow water Horizon can be mobilised on a vessel to gather survey data sets at depths down to 120m. For deep water survey operations the system can be deployed on an AUV or ROV platform. 

Horizon has a wide swath coverage of 120 degrees – where required, two Horizon sonar heads can be linked together to form a dual head setup for maximum swath coverage. Extremely fast ping rates of up to 100Hz allow Horizon to be used for higher speed survey operations, without compromising along-track resolution.
