Vue d'ensemble

By integrating positioning and navigation capabilities and performing real-time coherent and non-coherent SAS integration, iXblue makes SAS technology available to all hydrographic surveyors. The combination of all these technologies gives SAMS systems optimal imaging performance with respect to environmental conditions in terms of swath, resolution, image quality, coverage rate and absolute pixel positioning accuracy.
