Description

Affordable, professional-level multibeam sounder

For more than a decade, WASSP has delivered professional-level multibeam sounders with a product and price-point that bridges the gap between single-beam sonar and higher-priced MBES systems. The S3 is one of the world’s most cost-effective, professional survey and mapping multibeam sonar solutions. Designed as a mid-level sounder, the S3 will meet your budget, operational needs and future technology roll-out. And it lets you cover your survey area up to 10 times faster than a single-beam sounder.

 

Now you can understand what you’re looking at

The S3 features the lower power DRX-32 processor with high frequency transducer, giving you a maximum depths of over 350m. Scanning a 120-degrees swathe, port-to-starboard, and using advanced signal processing, the S3 gives you a complete and accurate picture of seafloor bathymetry so you can really understand what you’re looking at.

You can choose to use the new, enhanced WASSP CDX for all your WASSP system set-up and live operational graphical user interface, enabling live or end-of-survey export of raw data to your survey suite, including HYPACK, BeamworX, EIVA and QINSy and others.
