Sidescan Sonars

Sidescan Sonar is a category of sonar system that is used to efficiently create an image of large areas of the seafloor. A Sidescan Sonar is dragged just above the seafloor and emits sonar pulses downwards. When capturing the seafloor there is a tradeoff between using high frequencies for high resolution but small coverages and using low frequencies for low resolution but high coverage.

Side-scan sonar is an effective sonar instrument used to create images of the seafloor and other underwater objects. It is often chosen over MBES or SBES when greater detail is needed in the data, and is well-suited for shallow water environments, complex topography, and areas difficult to access. Side-scan sonar is also used in conjunction with other instruments, such as MBES, to provide a more comprehensive view of the seafloor. The price range for a side-scan sonar system varies, but can range from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars.
