Marine Sonic Technology, Ltd is
innovating the side-scan sonar market yet again with our newest generation
side-scan sonar in the Sea Scan ARC towed system. Our ARC Generation systems
utilize our latest proprietary technology, Adaptive CHIRP. This technology
provides extended ranges (see specs for expected ranges), minimal power
consumption, and more accurate results for faster surveys, both critical
components of side-scan sonar missions.
The Sea Scan ARC Explorer tow fish is
constructed using hard anodized billet aluminum, stainless steel, and durable
polymers. It features a built in Variable Angle Tow Point for ultimate imaging
flexibility. Field replaceable transducers allow the user to quickly adapt the
sonar to various conditions without compromising range or resolution. Up to four
frequencies can be installed on the same tow fish at any time. Modular
construction minimizes the maintenance costs and maximizes upgrade

it in our new systems for years to come.
