Description

The EdgeTech 6205s is a fully integrated Swath Bathymetry and Dual Frequency Side Scan Sonar System that produces real time, high resolution, sidescan imagery and three-dimensional maps of the seafloor. The 6205s overcomes the limitations of Multi Beam Echo Sounders (MBES) and Interferometric systems in shallow water by using EdgeTech’s unique Multi-Phase Echo Sounder (MPES) technology. This Hybrid approach combines both Beamforming and Phase Discrimination techniques to determine each sounding along the seafloor. With the integration of EdgeTech’s Full Spectrum® CHIRP technology, the 6205s exceeds IHO SP-44, NOAA, and USACE specifications for Feature Detection and Bathymetric Point Data Uncertainty.
