Full ocean depth sub-bottom profiler

For AUV/ROV and towed fishes

Down to 6000 m

15 cm resolution

Frequency range: 2-6 kHz

ECHOES 5000 is an energy efficient and compact sub-bottom profiler (SBP) system allowing high resolution surveys in various operating conditions (lake, shallow & deep waters). Its design allows an easy integration with an AUV for operation down to 6 000 m. Provided with DELPH SEISMIC acquisition software, it becomes a full-feature survey tool, easy to use, with a perfect balance between penetration and resolution.
