Vue d'ensemble

SeapiX-R provides accurate water column coverage, biomass assessment, seabed mapping and characterization.

SeapiX-R is the first compact civilian system comprising a dual Mills Cross multibeam sonar transducer offering total liberty of control. Its multiple advanced modulation modes, including CHIRP, combined with Doppler processing, are guarantees of the highest possible detection performance, even in difficult conditions.

SeapiX volumic 3D sonar images volcanic lake in Germany

In collaboration with four French, Belgian and German geoscience laboratories, iXblue’s Sonar Systems division recently mobilized its SeapiX volumic 3D sonar to image a volcanic lake in the Eifel region (Germany). The main goal was to detect gas bubbles that would help better understand the volcano activity.
