3.5 / 10 kHz Pinger Systems

These are high resolution sub-bottom profiling systems which map up to the first ten metres of sediments below the sea-floor.  Pinger systems are typically used for mapping soft sediments, pipeline and cable burial depth studies or other shallow water surveys.  The pinger transducer can be towed at depth behind the vessel on a towfish, or deployed on an "over the side" mount attached to the vessel rail.  We have had excellent results from these units  with a special configuration for very shallow water.
